Chris completed his Masters of Physical Therapy at UBC after a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at the University of New Brunswick. He has several years of experience working as personal trainer and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. This passion for helping his clients achieve greater health and reach their goals was the driving force that led Chris to pursue a career in physiotherapy. His practice is guided by current research, clinical experiences, and patient preference. He views exercise prescription and education as essential components of all treatment plans. Chris believes that people experiencing pain and decreased function should not just be rehabilitated back to their baseline but that their journey should continue to progress to greater health and performance.
Chris enjoys working with clients who have a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and has a particular interest in healthy aging which led him to acquire considerable experience in the management of knee and hip osteoarthritis. He has also undergone advanced training in the assessment and treatment of lower back and shoulder conditions. In addition to his broad musculoskeletal experience and interests, Chris has also received training in Vestibular Rehabilitation which enables him to work with clients experiencing a range of symptoms related to dizziness and vertigo.
Since moving to BC from Nova Scotia in 2006, Chris has embraced everything the Coast Mountains have to offer including skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and trail running. He believes that a strong, healthy body allows for optimal engagement in sport and life.
