Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I am a very manual therapy orientated practitioner. Assessment if the key to success. On your first visit I perform a very thorough subjective assessment looking at the history of your current complaint, past medical history, holistic health assessment (nutrition, exercise, diet, habits, routines, employment, etc). After that I perform orthopaedic exams to help diagnose and create a specific treatment plan that will guide your through the rehabilitation and prevention of injury. Treatments vary dependent on injury, however with continuing professional development, I have built a vary array of manual therapy techniques to assist in the most well rounded approach to healing. Some techniques include: Graston, Active Release Techniques, Mulligan Mobilization, Modalities (Ultrasound, IFC, TENS, Laser, etc), Acupuncture, K-Taping, Exercise prescription, etc.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Treatments always depend on injury. My approach to treatment may vary dependent on complaint/diagnosis and is always personalized to getting you back to your goal.

What are you proud of in your practice?

Each practitioner is an expert in their particular discipline, but as a team we feel that our approach to helping you achieve a healthier life is our forte. Tapping into all aspects of health is where we see the best result clinically in terms of success to help achieve your specific goals. Our treatment methods are personalized to help optimize your health!

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating people not injury. Every injury presents differently with its own specific challenges. This is why I love what I do. I allows me to clinically reason and think on my feet. Personalizing my treatments to specific needs and wants is what makes my treatments dynamic and very specific for each individual that walks through my door.

    Chris first treated me 5 years ago with wonderful success and so I would not want to go to a stranger for a check-up to help me optimise my health. He is an excellent physio. He encouraged me with a few new exercises and I will check in with him again in a couple of months.
