Stoney Creek Physiotherapy - pt Health
"My experience with this pt Health clinic was great! My physiotherapists’s treatment has helped me a lot in my recovery process following a broken jaw. Through massage therapy and exercises to do at home, he has helped me to get my movement and motion back in order. The rest of the team at the clinic was very friendly and cooperative, helping me with questions regarding insurance coverage."
"My first time at the Stoney Creek Clinic was a very good experience and found the staff very knowledgeable and experienced. They took the time to answer all my questions and enplaned what the next steps are. People at work recommended this clinic to me when I was asking where they would recommend I go after I had knee surgery. They all suggested the Stoney Creek Clinic was the best. They were right."

In his role at Queenston Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation - pt Health, Monil is passionate about seeing patients return to what they love in life–whether it’s taking a walk without pain, returning to work or playing with their children. “My role is to help my patients get back in their routine and provide them with adequate information on how to maintain their current physical well-being or even safely progress on their own.”
In India, where Monil grew up, he was inspired after witnessing a family member regain near normal functional capacity after joint replacement surgery who was helped by a physiotherapist. Monil captured the physiotherapist playing different roles such as empathetic listener, motivator, educator, expert, advocate, collaborator and the most important a supportive friend throughout the rehabilitation journey.
To prepare for his career as a physiotherapist, Monil earned a Baccalaureate degree from Rajiv Gandhi University of Health and Sciences in India which is equivalent to Master’s degree in Physical therapy evaluated by Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (CAPR). The 5-year program included an internship in a public hospital. Monil practiced in a privately owned clinic in India treating common musculoskeletal injuries from 3 years.
Currently, Monil is in good standing with The College of Physiotherapists of Ontario (CPO) since 2018 and is rostered to provide acupuncture treatments.
In addition to practice as a registered physiotherapist, Monil is also in his final year working toward a diploma program for Traditional Chinese medicine Acupuncture and Moxibustion. He will have a secondary license and be called a registered acupuncturist once he clears the exam.
In constant pursuit of advancing his knowledge, Monil is also planning to become a CAMPT-Certified physiotherapist, a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT). Earning the designation requires postgraduate education with five level exams. Currently, Monil is preparing for the Orthopaedic Division Level 1 exam.
When Monil spends time with his patients, he explains to them relevant information about their condition, applies effective techniques in the clinic and teaches patients to do those techniques safely at home.
Monil’s patients also enjoy his sense of humor, and like that he makes them laugh.
In the winter months, Monil enjoys cross country skiing, and in the warmer months, he likes to swim, hike trails, and camp. He also enjoys staying active by taking spinning classes and doing HIIT, a high intensity training program.
"I have had nothing but positive results from pt Health. I have had knee pain for many months and tried many different therapy options but got no real results. With pt Health I saw improvement after the first week and have continued to see positive results."
"The staff at Stoney Creek pt Health has helped me over the years through various body part injuries; back, shoulder, hamstring, knees, foot, elbow. They are professional, caring and beyond supportive. Without them, I couldn’t maintain my active lifestyle! Thank you so much!"
