About

 

Eric completed his Bachelor of Kinesiology with Honors at McMaster University and then graduated from the University of Alberta in 2009 with a Masters in Physical Therapy.  Eric then completed his Fellowship in Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT).  This is the highest level of post-graduate orthopaedic training for physiotherapists internationally.  FCAMPT therapist has extensive knowledge on anatomy, pathology, orthopaedic testing, and the most current best practice guidelines.  Treatments with a FCAMPT therapist will include advanced manual therapy, which is hands on treatments for muscles, ligaments, joints, and nerves.  Eric has also completed vestibular courses and has a special interest in treating conditions related to dizziness and vertigo.  He has been a lab instructor at the McMaster University Physiotherapy program and continues to be a senior instructor at the McMaster Contemporary Acupuncture program.  
 
Eric enjoys working with athletes.  He had worked extensively as an athletic trainer during his time at McMaster, working with the football, lacrosse, and swim teams.  He was also a consulting physiotherapist with the Canadian National Basketball team.  Eric is a firm believer in finding the root cause of an injury.  If one was to only treat the symptoms the injury will surely return.  The key is to find and address the cause of the injury to prevent the problem from coming back.  Practising in downtown Toronto, Eric regularly treats working professionals and weekend warriors alike.  

In his spare time Eric is a big foodie.  On weekends, he is either exploring the latest hot spot in toronto's trendy food scene or trying a new recipe in his master chef kitchen.  During the week you can find him burning off these excess calories at the Adelaide Club.
