What I do around here:

I am passionate about helping people get back to their pain-free active lifestyle and reach their full potential. From the time I began practicing in 2008, I have applied evidence-based practice to manage various Musculoskeletal conditions, Sport injuries and Neurological disorders. I am excited to be working at Apollo PTC, where innovation and cutting-edge technology is creating new pathways to treat concussions and mild to moderate traumatic brain injuries.

I became a Physiotherapist because:

Health and Help were always my passions. Physiotherapy is a perfect fusion of the two.

My personal philosophy is:

Where there is a problem, there is a solution. I believe that as a Physiotherapist, it is my job to figure out what the root cause of your pain/problem is.

What I do for fun:

I am into sports, both playing and watching! I also love hanging out with my family and friends.

How can PoNS Treatment™ help to improve your balance?

  • PoNS Treatment™ combines mild stimulation of the tongue with targeted training
  • Translingual stimulation of the trigeminal and facial nerves initiates a cascade of neural activity, resulting in neuromodulation
  • Multiple sequential training sessions lead to reduction of symptoms
  • The combination of stimulation with targeted training may enhance the neuroplastic effect, which results in functional improvements in balance and gait

The Heuro™ Program uses approaches to leverage this important healing process

How do I get started with the Heuro™ Program featuring the PoNS Treatment™?

STEP 1: Talk to your doctor to be referred for treatment. Download the physician referral form here.


STEP 2: Contact a Heuro Treatment Clinic near you  and set up a 15-minute consultation. Once your referral form has been completed, send the form to your chosen clinic. Find a clinic here.


STEP 3: Visit the clinic  to start the treatment.

What I do around here:

I prescribe, progress, and regress exercise programs as well as teach correct movement techniques to help others recover, stay mobile, and injury free. I also apply treatment modalities such as thermotherapy, cryotherapy, TENS, STIM, IFC, ultrasound, and taping.

I became an Exercise Specialist because:

I am passionate about interacting and learning from others, and love being able to see people reach their full potential and live with good quality of life through exercise and physical activity!

My personal philosophy is:

Get to know the person, not just the patient.

What I do for fun:

I enjoy activities that allow me to spend time with my wife and two daughters.  Riding on the bike trails of Ottawa, playing golf, hockey and soccer are just a few of the things that keep me active.  As well, spending a few days at the gym working on strength and aerobic conditioning allow me to stay fit and keep pace with my active children.  With very little down time, I occasionally like to spend a quiet night at home watching a movie or playing the Wii.
