I am a both a physiotherapist and chiropractor treating musculoskeletal disorders within a biopsychosocial model.
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. My clinical musings can be seen on Medbridge Health CE and various web based podcasts. I am currently an instructor with therunningclinic.ca and with Reconciling Biomechanics with Pain Science. Both are continuing education platforms that provide clinically relevant research that helps shape and refine clinical practice.
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 anddissemination of knowledge an important component of responsible practice.
