BSc(Kin), MPT, CSCS
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 knowledge and experience allow him to provide progressive and complete rehabilitation to his clients.
Chris enjoys working with a wide range of individuals but has few areas of particular interest which include knee and hip osteoarthritis, running related injuries, healthy aging, and injury risk reduction. He has also undergone advanced training in lower back and shoulder conditions. 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.
Since moving to BC from Nova Scotia in 2006, Chris has been captivated by the wide range of outdoor activities that the West Coast has to offer. In his spare time he can often be found hiking, trail running, mountain biking, or skiing in the local mountains.
