Conditions successfully treated: In addition to working with sports teams, Duane has concurrently worked in private practice physiotherapy clinics treating clients of all ages for musculo-skeletal injuries related to activities of slightly less elite athletes, activities of daily living, motor vehicle accidents, and workplace accidents.

Meeting with Duane: During a one-on-one session with Duane, you will be assessed for movement, function, alignment, biomechanics, strength and specific injury. After your assessment, you will be educated on your diagnosis and prognosis. Duane will also discuss what treatment options are available. You will be given specific exercises customized for you to regain muscle balance and overall strength. All treatments will be performed and monitored personally.

Special interests: As an athlete who pursued a variety of sports from grade school to varsity at university, Duane has learned first-hand how limiting and frustrating injuries can be. This has been fundamental in shaping his beliefs in the importance of pre-habilitation, staying strong and fit, as well as identifying (and correcting) underlying causes to avoid potential injuries and to speed the recovery from unavoidable injuries. All injuries, no matter how minor, should be assessed early and treated properly to prevent them from becoming chronic or leading to further injury.

Personal Interests: When away from the office, Duane’s love of sports takes him skiing, running, golfing, biking (mountain and road), hiking, swimming, teaching his two young boys to be active, and any other activity that challenges him and gets him out moving.
