Steve Gifford - Clinical AssociateBScPT
Registered Physiotherapist, Manipulative Therapy, Industrial Rehabilitation
Steve has spent over 11 years working as a physiotherapist in both private practice and industry settings. Because Steve recognizes the importance of always improving his skills he completed his Certificate of Intermediate Manual and Manipulative Therapy in 2006. Steve is presently working towards his Diploma of Advanced Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy. He is a Resident of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapists.
Steve's experience treating mill workers has taught him the importance of fitness and muscle balance in injury prevention. He enjoys treating acute and chronic injuries and uses both manual skills and exercise programs to maximize injury recovery. Steve encourages his patients to take an active role in treatment and stresses the critical role that posture and good body mechanics play in reducing injury recurrence.
As an avid woodworker, Steve has to 'practice what he preaches'. He maintains his own fitness while skiing (on water or snow) or playing golf on one of the many local courses.
