Registered Physiotherapist

Anthony grew up in Georgetown, Ontario where he spent the majority of his time playing a variety of organized team sports. As a result, Anthony combined his love for sports and passion for helping others to pursue a career in physical therapy. Anthony graduated with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Queen’s University in 2019, following an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology from Western University in 2017. During his time at Western, Anthony was selected to be the student athletic trainer for the men’s varsity basketball team. Through this experience, he developed a passion for orthopaedic physical therapy, and has continued to advance his learning in this area of practice through enrolment in a number of post-graduate courses. Anthony’s evidence-informed treatment style consists of combining manual therapy, education, and most importantly, exercise prescription. He makes certain to take a holistic approach through examining the entire person and building a strong therapeutic alliance, in order to help all clients achieve their functional goals.

Outside of the clinic, Anthony continues to engage in a multitude of hobbies and extra-curricular activities, such as exercising (calisthenics), travelling, spending time with family and friends, and mentoring students. Anthony utilizes his mentorship and entrepreneurial skills to manage his YouTube channel called “The Canadian Physio Student.” He created the channel in order to answer common questions and concerns of current and future physical therapy students in Canada, and continues to create new content as often as possible. With a wide breadth of unique experiences, Anthony is able to connect and resonate with individuals from all walks of life and is more than happy to help others out in any way he can.
