Daniel is a physiotherapy resident who is a recent 2022 graduate from the Master of Science Physiotherapy program at Queen’s University. Prior to that, he also completed his undergraduate program at Queen’s University studying Life Sciences and French Literature.
From his adolescent years, Daniel knew he wanted to work in the rehabilitation field. He first started to learn about the anatomy of the human body when playing competitive tennis in order to look after his fitness and to increase his performance. After working with various health professionals in the field of sports medicine, he became interested with the work that physiotherapists perform. He wanted to gain the knowledge and ability to help prevent and treat individuals with musculoskeletal injuries, while also ensuring they return to their optimal health. Daniel understood the importance of being in good physical health for everyday function, and therefore he is now ready to support anyone that is seeking help and guidance with their health.
Daniel’s approach consists of tailoring each interaction and treatments to the patients’ individual goals to guide them to their best physical self. This includes educating patients about their health, providing manual therapy treatments, and prescribing the appropriate stretches and/or exercises. As he grows into his physiotherapy career, Daniel will continue to educate himself and take post-graduate courses in order to stay up to date with the medical research and provide the best available care to his patients.
During his time off, Daniel loves to play sports like tennis and soccer, he enjoys going to the gym and hanging out with friends and family. Daniel was also a flight attendant for a couple of years between his school degrees which allowed him to pursue his passion for travel, discovering new cities and cultures.
