About Michael

After years of involvement in competitive sports, Mike found his passion and decided to pursue a career in physiotherapy. He obtained a BSc in human kinetics from the University of Guelph in 2012, after which, he worked as a physiotherapy assistant for four years and volunteered in various facets of the field. He then completed his MSc in physiotherapy at Queen Margaret University in Scotland in 2018.

Mike is a life-long learner and dedicated to continuing his education. He has training in Mulligan Mobilizations with Movement, and has completed post-graduate certifications in advanced exercise prescription for the cervical spine and upper extremity and lumbar spine and lower extremity through the Advanced Physical Therapy Education Institute. He aspires to widen his skill set even further and continue his education through various clinical orthopaedic specialisations.

Outside the clinic, Mike enjoys outdoor activities, cooking, travelling, and playing hockey and golf. He takes great pride in his work and feels tremendous responsibility in knowing it is his job to help return clients to the activities they love doing.
