Basit is a firm believer in helping others to move better. He graduated from the University of Alberta with a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy and before that, he graduated with an honours degree in Kinesiology from York University in Toronto. In the clinic he is known for his colourful personality that is exemplified by his sock game (see if you can catch him wearing the same sock twice)! His purpose is understanding the complexity of body and helping to guide you along your recovery process.
Basit is fully dedicated to providing you with the best evidence-based care. To do this, he strives on continual growth and to always enhance his clinical knowledge, skills and expertise in the field of Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation. He has completed various post graduate rehabilitation courses/seminars to provide you with the best care.
Basit enjoy treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries and orthopedic conditions, including spinal dysfunction or pain, sport and work-related injuries and motor vehicle accidents. He also specializes in Injury prevention programs as he is a firm believer in “prevention is better than cure”. His treatment style includes collaborating with his patients to better understand the underlying cause of injury, pain or dysfunction and to providing patient-specific treatment plans to getting you returning to things that matter most! After all, each patient is different, and as a result, his treatment approach with everyone will be different. His goal is to work with you to get you where you want to be.
When you meet, you’ll quickly learn about his passion for health and fitness. When he’s not treating, he’s busy engaging in various sporting/fitness activities such as bodybuilding, running, martial arts, basketball and soccer. If he wasn’t pursuing physiotherapy as a career, he would be pursuing his childhood dream of becoming a professional soccer player. However, after sustaining several injuries playing at a semi-professional level, he decided to change careers and help others achieve their health, fitness, and lifestyle goals.

Gladiator will always be a classic for me. I still remember young me thinking why Maximus never mention to the arena that he was hurt. #noexcuses
I'm a big believer in finding your purpose, and for that reason, my favourite book will have to be “A fulfilled life through Ikigai & Kaizen” by Ichiro Sato. It's short and sweet and straight to the point.
Tell me you’ve watched Peaky Blinders.
The Sock Physio.
I recently picked up hiking and loving the challenge. As for sport, I played soccer my whole life, so that takes number one. I also love basketball and jujutsu (MMA).
