“Effective physiotherapy is about treating the cause not just symptoms.”
John’s extensive knowledge of anatomy, exercise physiology and biomechanics guides his thorough and complete physical assessment. From that information, he will diagnose the injury and devise a customized treatment plan which includes exercise retraining, joint mobilizations, therapeutic massage, ultrasound, muscle stimulation and performance taping.
He is a strong believer in patient education and home exercise to empower the patient to “treat themselves” to restore full mobility while preventing the injury from coming back. His goal is to provide the necessary and most effective treatment modalities to return his patients to their full, pain free potential for the activities that are most meaningful to them.
