The Athletify team is here to help you recover from injuries both old and new to get you back to your active lifestyle. From the performance therapy side of things, we can help your body recover faster from hard training sessions, improve athletic performance, as well as prevent future injury.
I take pride in providing top notch care to each and every patient. It’s a priority to me that my patients understand their body, what is happening to it and how to improve it. Equally important is the relaxed and focused one-on-one attention that each patient deserves when they make time to visit the clinic. With these values as the foundation of my approach, the effectiveness of my therapy techniques are taken to the next level. Each patient experiences an integrated multimodal approach of health education, manual hands-on therapy, acupuncture, dry needling and exercise.
When not at work, I prioritize spending time with my wife and two young boys. Being active and nutrition conscious is a part of our daily lives. As a general sports enthusiast, when given the opportunity, I enjoy activities such as a game of golf, hockey and crossfit-type training.
