Paul along with his wife Donna opened Physio in the Valley in 2001 with the intention of creating a practice that would combine the best of traditional physical therapy with the principles and techniques of osteopathic manual therapy. Their belief was to create a physiotherapy practice where the client is treated one-on-one with advanced skills and training. They had previously worked in facilities where clients were seen for quick, short visits; spending most of the time with assistants or being put on machines for their care. The model of care at Physio in the Valley with Donna and Paul and associates is very different from that.
With over 25 years of clinical experience, Paul's practice and knowledge base is extensive and he is certainly one of the most experienced and well rounded therapists around.
Paul, BSc.PT, graduated from the University of Ottawa in 1996 and has been working in private outpatient setting since then.
