Michael’s physiotherapy career started in 2014 as a kinesiologist for ptHealth at the Cole Harbour Integrated Health and Forest Hills locations. Spending 3 years with the company, Michael grew to love the healthcare field and chose to further his education by becoming a physiotherapist. He graduated from Dalhousie University in 2019 with a MSc. in Physiotherapy and is looking forward to working as a ptHealth team member again. Michael believes in using a client-centered approach, incorporating individualized exercise and education to help patients manage pain and recover while preventing future injuries. He hopes to pursue post-graduate courses in acupuncture and manual therapy to help improve the care he can provide to his clients. Outside of physiotherapy, Michael is an avid sports fan and athlete. He played competitive soccer and competed at a national level in sprint canoe/kayak. He continues to play soccer and when he is not being active, he enjoys spending time at home with his wife and their dog J-ze.
