Joseph was tons of help! Great guy to deal with, he had me back to 100% ahead of schedule. Nice and friendly group of people that work there! Would recommend them to anybody!
Joseph enjoys staying as active as possible in the Edmonton community. You might have seen him heavily involved in some indoor Edmonton Sport and Social soccer nights, or you might see him enjoying the sunshine in the summer with an outdoor boxing workout. Either way, his active lifestyle has led Joseph to believe that a suitable physical exercise program, which combines stretching and strengthening, can balance our everyday lives.
Joseph is passionate about encouraging his clients in realizing the strength and resiliency of their bodies and empowering them to take an active role in their recovery. He is a strong believer that a good physiotherapist is someone who prioritizes continuous learning and continuously drives to find the root cause of his clients problem.
In Joseph, clients can expect a therapist who values connecting with his patients. He believes every individual’s path is different, and uses tools such as manual therapy, education, and exercise to help them achieve their personalized goals. Along the way, Joseph’s contagious enthusiasm, fun loving and positive attitude will have you smiling more often than not. Joseph is truly satisfied when he is able to help his clients maintain the ability to live their life to the fullest.

Option B by Sheryl Sandberg. I'm always on the hunt for a good personal development book so swing them my way! Atomic habits was my favourite recent one there.
If I’m not watching sports it would be Breaking bad, House, Suits (Harvey...) and I’ve recently finally started binge watching the office (quickly becoming favourite...).
Joey (for now).
Soccer is what I have played and watched my whole life. Recently found myself enjoying a lot more NBA and NFL as well. Still trying hard to get into hockey. Outdoors you’ll find me floating rivers, camping, hiking and travelling the world.
