Phillip uses a functional holistic assessment and treatment style that identifies the complex nature of each individual's pain experience. Through a detailed interview and assessment process, and utilizing his experience as an FCAMPT fellow, Phillip develops a treatment plan to tackle the physical and psychosocial factors contributing to musculoskeletal pain and movement disorders. Personalized treatment and care consists of acupuncture and dry needling techniques, soft tissue release, joint mobilization and guided corrective exercise to eliminate compensatory movement patterns and resolve the root of the problem instead of chasing symptoms. Having undergone extensive self rehabilitation to correct deeply ingrained dysfunctional movement patterns from untreated sport injuries, Phillip approaches his patients with a personal understanding that allows him to treat complex and long standing injuries with great success.

Personal experience/interests

Phillip takes a special interest in treating people with complex musculoskeletal issues and treatment resistant pain. Phillip continues to stay active through golf, basketball, weight lifting, cycling and chasing around his two young children. He's also a self-professed foodie, into home renovation and boardgames with his kiddos.

Favourite lift: Phil's favourite lift is the Romanian Deadlift, because he feels that long, strong hamstrings make for a happy physical life.
