Registered Kinesiologist

Certified Athletic Therapist

Daniel completed his Bachelors of Kinesiology and Philosophy (2003) at the University

of Western Ontario. He graduated with Honours from Sheridan College (2008) with a

Bachelors of Applied Health Science in Athletic Therapy. Daniel is currently a Thesis

Writer at the Canadian College of Osteopathy. The title of his study is “The Effect of

Regional Osteopathic Treatment on Vestibular Dysfunction from Minor Traumatic Brain

My philosophy for patient rehabilitation uses a combination of treatment methods

including manual therapy, exercise programs, and patient education. Treatment methods

include craniosacral therapy, visceral therapy, myofascial, muscle energy, and strain-

counterstrain. I treat patients of all ages and fitness levels for all orthopaedic injury types,

concussion management, pre/post-op surgeries, digestive issues, and more. I have also

been a long-time provider for orthopaedic bracing including custom knee braces and

other rehab products.

Daniel currently provides field coverage for the York Simcoe Express AAA Hockey

Club. He has worked with Toronto Skillz Soccer Academy, S.A.A.C. Soccer, Oakville

Soccer Club, OWHA Hockey, Burlington Braves and Stampeders Football. He has done

event coverage for Skate Canada, Phil Esposito Fantasy Hockey Camp, Johnson &

Johnson International Cup Hockey Tournament, and the Canadian Wheelchair Rugby

Championships.
