Drew’s passion for physiotherapy dates back to his years as a teenage athlete. Having sustained several shoulder dislocations playing hockey, he is no stranger to the rehabilitation journey. His personal experience with injury led to many hours spent in physiotherapy clinics where he developed a passion and appreciation for physiotherapy as it continues to keep him active and playing the sport he loves.
From the first time you walk through the door, Drew’s goal is to teach you the tools to understand and manage your pain so you can get back to whatever it is that keeps you moving. He has worked with a wide range of patients; from grandparents looking to get back to chasing their grandkids to gym goers aiming to crush their personal records.
In his day to day practice, Drew takes a global approach to assess and treat movement dysfunctions. This means he focuses on faulty patterns in your movement to find and address the source of the problem rather than chasing pain. A typical session with Drew includes movement and muscle testing, manual therapy, and sharing plenty of at-home exercises that will aid your progress.
A lifelong learner, Drew is constantly in pursuit of new courses, striving to learn different ways to help his patients each day. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Prince Edward Island and a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto.
When he’s not in the clinic, you can often find Drew at a hockey rink coaching or playing, at a live show supporting his favorite bands, or honing his skills at Rock Oasis for his newfound love of bouldering!
