BPE, BScPT, GunnIMS, Concussion Assessment & Treatment (CCMI), CPA Orthopedic Level III Lower and Level III Upper, Manual Therapy
I’m Patrick and I have been practicing physiotherapy in private practice orthopedics for over 19 years now. In 1999, I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Physical Education degree in Athletic Therapy and in 2003, with a Bachelor of Science Physical Therapy degree. Since university, I have continued to further my education with CPA Orthopedic Manual Therapy Courses and more specifically, advanced courses in shoulder, thoracic spine and cervical spine rehabilitation as well as the therapeutic treatment of cervical headaches. I am also certified in Gunn IMS and dry needling.
Throughout my life, I have always been heavily involved in sports, exercise and staying healthy. These interests combined with my love of helping people and studying the human body has made physical therapy the perfect career for me. To put it simply, I love my job and find it highly rewarding to help people achieve their physical goals and return to strong health and fitness.
In the past, I have also been involved as an athletic trainer/Physiotherapist for numerous sports team. After completing a four year playing career as a member of the University of Alberta Golden Bears Tennis team, I went on to be the athletic trainer for the Bears and Pandas tennis teams. I then became the head athletic trainer for Team Alberta of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League where I had the chance to treat past and future Olympians in the highest level of women’s hockey available in Canada.
I’m heavily involved in playing slo pitch in the summer and hockey in the winter months. Although I enjoy working with athletes, I also have a heavy interest in other areas of rehabilitation as well. There is no aspect of my career that I enjoy more than problem solving with my clients in order to get them back to the activities that they enjoy, whether from a motor vehicle collision or an overuse work related injury.
