Dan graduated from Queen’s University with a Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy, and before that, received his Bachelor in Kinesiology from the University of British Columbia. Dan’s interest in physiotherapy and athletic performance stemmed from his own experience in competitive sport, and in particular, prolonged injuries which were successfully treated by physiotherapy. He is passionate about using manual therapy, individualized exercise prescription, and education to work collaboratively with patients to help them reach their goals- whether it is with elite youth athletes or their grandparents.
Dan continues to pursue further advanced physiotherapy training and has taken AN-IMS (IMS/Dry Needling) through Foundations Health Education, as well as Orthopaedic Levels through the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. He also has a clinical interest in the management of vestibular issues and has trained in vestibular rehabilitation with the Dizziness and Balance Rehabilitation Clinic.
Prior to physiotherapy, Dan worked as an exercise physiologist working with adults with chronic health conditions and in cardiac rehabilitation, as well as a youth basketball coach.
