Biography

Roman's interest and passion towards physiotherapy started after having suffered from chronic and acute pain issues as an athlete and student. He was particularly interested in the benefits derived from exercise when prescribed as medicine due to its global effects in the body. Roman graduated from York University with a Specialized Honors BSc. in Kinesiology with the highest distinction (Summa Cum Laude) in 2013. He went on to complete his M.Sc. in Physical Therapy at the University of Western Ontario from 2014 to 2016. His ambition to provide patients with the best care possible led him to extend his education with courses in acupuncture/dry needling, manual therapy (Level 1-Ortho Div), and Myofascial-Release techniques. Roman has also had the privilege of working as a CSEP Certified Personal Trainer with private clients under the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology since 2011.

Although Roman has worked in a multitude of clinical settings, including hospital outpatient and inpatient placements pre and post-surgical, his focus, experience, and devotion revolve around outpatient sport medicine clinics.

During the Initial Physiotherapy appointment, Roman will perform a full body scan to get to the root cause of the problem. He has always been fascinated by the body's ability to operate as a system, all parts in symphony with one another. His treatment approach is a combination of joint mobilization, myofascial and neural release, acupuncture, therapeutic and corrective exercises, as well as ultrasound, electro-therapy, laser and R. shockwave as needed. Roman works hard to understand you and your goals so as to develop a treatment program tailored to your needs, desires, wishes, and preferences. He is especially keen on empowering clients to learn about their bodies and to find ways to manage their pain, mobility, and fitness from a preventative rather than reactive approach. Although he enjoys working with athletes, weekend warriors and sports enthusiasts he also finds particular fulfillment in working with all age groups through a broad range of injuries from acute to chronic.
