Level 3 Manual Therapy
Location: Liberty Village
Brian completed his graduate degree in physical therapy at the University of Toronto, after graduating from the University of Guelph human kinetics program. Since graduating from physiotherapy school in 2014, Brian has worked in the orthopedic field, treating musculoskeletal and neurological injuries.
Brian is a level 3 manual therapist through the orthopedic division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, and will be challenging the Intermediate exam in the spring of 2018. He obtained his acupuncture training through the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program, and is also trained in soft tissue release techniques and sport taping. Brian has treated a wide spectrum of patients, ranging in both functional ability and age. As a lifelong athlete, he understands the trials of injury as well as the rehab journey to get back to full function.
Brians areas of particular interest include injuries to the shoulder and the ankle, as these are areas that he has had to rehab in his own athletic journey playing baseball, volleyball, and running track. A very hands-on therapist, Brian combines this with acupuncture and functional exercise prescription to address pain and restore function; his main goal is to get clients back to doing what they want to do, and to prevent future injury. In his free time, Brian stays active by working out and playing pick-up sports with friends.
