Brandon is a registered Physiotherapist who has recently returned to Barrie after spending 7 years in Vancouver, BC. While there he worked extensively in Vancouver and North Vancouver, but is happy to be home and close to Lake Simcoe!

He has wide ranging interests, with a background in elite athletics, movement analysis and chronic pain conditions.

he had the opportunity to work with and improve performance in athletes of all skill levels, from recreational to national level sport. He worked closely with both Snowboard BC and the Rob Short Field Hockey Academy, among others.
In clinic he combines his academic training and the hours he has spent working with clients to find a treatment strategy that will work specifically for each individual. Brandon has had the advantage of working with clients ranging in age from 10 to 85 years old, with a large variety of presentations. He also has extensive experience working with a wide variety of sport athletes, including but not limited to soccer, hockey, field hockey, stunt performance, distance running, power lifting, golf, skiing and snowboarding. He firmly believes in the value of continued education.
