In-Home Physiotherapist, BScPT

Apollo South

Qualifications

B.P.H.E, B.Sc.P.T

What I do around here:

I provide In-Home Physiotherapy/Rehabilitative care to our Apollo Ottawa area patients. I love the challenge of complex care for infants, children, and adults. If you feel you have hit a “road block” in your rehabilitation, I would love to see you!

I became a Physiotherapist because:

I like to empower people and give them the tools they need to change. Each of us have the ability to be better, stronger, or faster.

My personal philosophy is:

JUST DO IT (I may have stole that one from someone. …lol). What I mean is…stop procrastinating and just get to it. Live it: day-to-day in your actions.  Breathe it. It shouldn’t be just for a month or two. It should be the way you live 95% of the time.

What I do for fun:

It isn’t the choice of activity that makes something fun, it is the company you enjoy it with.  That being said, I love all sports, am an avid cyclist and last but not least, often find myself an active taxi service for my 3 children – each involved in their own competitive sport!

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.
