MPT, BScKin, CSCS.
Chris has always enjoyed helping people achieve greater health and reach their goals, which made his journey to a career in Physiotherapy a natural fit. After completing his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at the University of New Brunswick 2006, he worked as a personal trainer and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist in Whistler for several years before completing his Masters of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia in 2016.
Chris has a continuous appetite for learning and growing professionally; to this end he has taken courses in manual and manipulative therapy, IMS/dry needling, vestibular and concussion rehabilitation, management of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, as well as specific courses on shoulder, hip, knee, and low back rehabilitation.
Chris enjoys treating a varied caseload of patients with musculoskeletal injuries, including sport and orthopedic conditions, ranging from acute to chronic conditions, but has a particular interest in knee injuries including ACL and other post-surgical rehabilitation. No matter how big or small the goal, his treatments are always individualized, educational, client-centered and supplemented with manual therapy and progressive exercise programs as necessary. Whether you are someone with common aches or pains or an athlete of any kind, Chris looks forward to being able to help you.
Beyond the walls of the clinic, you can catch Chris mountain biking, trail running, or skiing in the local mountains. He believes that a strong, healthy body allows for optimal engagement in sport and life and aims to put his knowledge into practice in his own pursuits and strength and conditioning practice.
