Ethan received his Master’s of Physiotherapy from McMaster University after completing his Undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. As an avid runner, golfer, and weightlifter with an extensive exercise background, he is well-versed in treating clients using an active rehabilitative approach with realistic treatment plans centered around functional exercises.

Ethan has pursued post-graduate education in working with runners and golfers to not only recover from these sport-specific injuries but also optimize form to improve performance and reduce risk of future injury.

Sustainable behaviour change is an important aspect of Ethan’s treatment, as well as instilling an appreciation for the benefits of living a healthy, balanced, and active lifestyle. He believes in partnering with his clients to reach their goals together and educating them on how to self-manage and prevent future injuries. Ethan is dedicated to meeting clients where they are at and providing evidence-based, patient-specific treatments that help them maximize their physical and mental health.

In his spare time, Ethan is often working towards one of his goals by training for a running race, golfing, or working out in the gym.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Some of my favourite things to do in my free time, one of them is definitely run. I’m a runner and I love to run, I like to do half marathons and I’m working up to running my first marathon. Another thing that I love to do is golf and I’ve recently been getting into disc golfing as well.

What kind of physiotherapy do you do?

I like to treat all different types of injuries, but having said that some of the areas that I like to work with the most are working with new runners, so anybody that’s really interested in getting into running for the first time and are worried about getting injured or anything like that, I love working with them and getting them into into running. As well as working with any other kind of levels of runners wanting to up their game and another area that I specialize in is working with golfers as well.

Why physiotherapy?

I chose physiotherapy because I really value an active lifestyle and I believe that it can help a lot with just overall health as well as happiness and physiotherapy is one of the fields that I could be able to kind of help people really get into a more active lifestyle and improve their health, as well as just be able to work with people every day which is something that I’m really passionate about and love doing.

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a new patient?

One piece of advice I’d give to a new patient is overall just keep moving. Movement is so good for the body and whether you’re recovering from an injury or even if you’re just trying to stay injury-free, keeping the body moving as much as you can is one of the best ways to help with either of those things.

What do you like about Westcoast SCI?

One of the big reasons that I wanted to join Westcoast SCI is because I really value the team approach when it comes to Physiotherapy and working with a team of physiotherapists. It makes it really easy to bounce ideas off of each other as well as just makes it a more fun place to work and on top of that the values at Westcoast SCI really align with my own, so I feel very strongly about using exercise as the primary mechanism of treatment and living an active healthy lifestyle is so important for everyone and the values of Westcoast SCI really align with that and I think everyone here treats in a similar way that I do.
