Combining Pilates and Physiotherapy in Toronto For Sports Injuries; Lower Back and Neck Pain; Musculoskeletal Conditions.
Pilates4Physio in Toronto combines the science and clinical reasoning from physiotherapy practice with the principles of Pilates. Pilates restores muscle balance and correct movement with strength and flexibility. The concept of training correct muscle recruitment, as well as strength, is the key to overcoming many over-use conditions. Even for acute injuries, the Pilates equipment allows gradual pain free movement so that the healing process can take place.

I was in Toronto visiting family and struggling with alot of pain which interfered with my vacation and daily living. I had recently become involved with Pilates and decided to search for a studio with the hopes it would improve my pain/mobility. After searching and reading of sites/reviews, I decided to try Damian as I was impressed with his (academic/work) background. I was extremely happy with both his clinical skills and results! Damian's assessment skills are exceptional and he was able to determine what the underlying issues were very quickly. His approach of combining both physio and pilates is very effective and decreased my pain level (knees/hips) and improved my mobility within a few days. Thank you Damian!
After an ACL reconstruction, I had been to 5 or 6 physiotherapists in the UK, Ireland and Canada. Two years later my leg still wasn't right, I had pain and weakness and my leg felt as though it was rotated inwards about 15 degrees from where it should be. I was very frustrated as I wasn't ready to get back to skiing or martial arts which I had expected to be 12 months earlier.
I found Damian, described my symptoms and he immediately diagnosed that I had done lots of work on strength (squats, lunges etc) but not enough on stabilization. Within a few sessions I had noticed a considerable difference and was heading back to normal extremely quickly. I am now fully recovered thanks to his expertise.
Damian is a fantastic physio who is passionate about his profession, but side from that he is a great guy who is really approachable, kind and understanding.
You couldn't find a better physio. Go to Damian!
Damian's combination of dance background, soft tissue work, and pilates all inform his physiotherapy techniques to great effect. Very grateful to have been referred to this excellent health resource.
