I am a physiotherapist, chiropractor and strength and conditioning specialist treating musculoskeletal disorders within a biopsychosocial model.
I currently teach two 2-day continuing education courses to health and fitness professionals through out the world. Reconciling Biomechanics with Pain Science and Running Resiliency have been taught more than 60 times in more than 40 locations world wide.
I regularly give Invited Keynotes at various global conferences. Most recently speaking at:
Conference Keynote: Reconciling Biomechanics with Pain Science
Host: European Chiropractic Union
Location: Cyprus, May 25, 2017
Conference Keynote: The Key Messages of Pain Science
Host: Registered Massage Therapy Association of Ontario
Location: Toronto, ONJune 3, 2017
Invited Lecture: Gait retraining: is the mechanism different from what you think?
Host: Swiss Symposium for Sports PhysiotherapyLocation and date: Bern, Switzerland. November 18, 2016
Prior to my clinical career I was fortunate enough to receive a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council MSc graduate scholarship that permitted me to be one of only two yearly students to train with Professor Stuart McGill in his Occupational Biomechanics Laboratory subsequently publishing more than 20 peer reviewed papers in the manual therapy and exercise biomechanics field. I was an assistant professor at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College teaching a graduate level course in Spine Biomechanics and Instrumentation as well conducting more than 20 research experiments while supervising more than 50 students. I have lectured on a number of topics on reconciling treatment biomechanics with pain science, running injuries, golf biomechanics, occupational low back injuries and therapeutic neuroscience.
While I have a strong biomechanics background I was introduced to the field of neuroscience and the importance of psychosocial risk factors in pain and injury management almost two decades ago. I believe successful injury management and prevention can use simple techniques that still address the multifactorial and complex nature of musculoskeletal disorders. I am active on social media and consider the discussion and dissemination of knowledge an important component of responsible practice.
