Physiotherapy Treatment Philosophy

The Clinicians Behind the Science

“Antibiotics don’t actually work.” My jaw dropped and I stared like a deer in the headlights. WHAT?? After all, these words had just come out of the mouth of the Chief of infectious disease. At the time we were working together in the cystic fibrosis clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Dr. MacDonald gave me […] Read More ❱

Seven Pains You do not Have to Put Up With

  So often in my practice I see people who have been suffering in one way or another for a very long time. A lot of times they have been to other health care practitioners with minimal results, and so they have just resigned themselves to living with pain, discomfort, and limited function. When I […] Read More ❱
