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.

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.

Testimonial

FUN, FRIENDLY AND PHENOMENAL…

Those are the three words that best describe the treatment you will get from Adam. Adam is a genius when it comes to physiotherapy!

I would highly recommend Adam to anyone with any type of skeletal problems such as those I had exhibited. He is very thorough and very knowledgeable…and he gets results!!

Jade is the best! She kept me safe while recovering from a back injury and working full time. I found she was really great at adapting exercises and treatment to my pain level.

It is easy to see that Adam loves his job and genuinely wants to help his patients. He brings a sense of humor and a huge amount of knowledge to his work. I would recommend Adam to anyone looking for a great physiotherapist.

Jade in particular was an exemplary PT with an unprecedented aptitude for combining treatment with compassion. It’s rare to see someone so passionate and so dedicated to delivering exceptional care every single day. I would certainly recommend her services to newcomers because she explains the etiology of injuries well and works hard to facilitate recovery during sessions and offers good advice to work on after the session is complete.

Thank you Adam, you are the most educated professional I have ever worked with and without your help and teamwork, my members would not be able to sustain the quality of life that they deserve!
