Andrew obtained his Masters of Physical Therapy from Dalhousie University during which time he received funding to learn at the Institute of Neurological Science in Glasgow, Scotland. Andrew was the acting student president and graduated at the top of his class in integrative practice. Prior to this Masters, Andrew also completed a Masters in Experimental Medicine as well as a Bachelor of Science in Physiology at McGill University.
Andrew’s love of sport and fitness led him to the McGill varsity track and field team, competing in long jump and sprints, making nationals twice and representing Nova Scotia at the 2009 Canada Games. He attributes his success in overcoming multiple injuries during this time to his physiotherapy team and this experience gives him a valuable patient view perspective in his practice. Today, Andrew continues to stay active whether it be playing squash, basketball or trying something new like training for a half marathon.
Andrew has a particular interest in orthopaedic and sports therapy whether it be preventative, rehabilitative or continuing care. He is passionate about using a patient-therapist team approach to identify therapy goals, barriers and then formulating the optimal program to reach those goals. His evidence-based treatments include a combination of education, electro-physical modalities, hands on manual therapy techniques and most importantly functional exercise. Andrew is certified in Neuro-Proprioceptive taping and is engaged in continuing education through the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.
