Greg’s focus is on orthopedic patients in various populations, where one-to-one manual therapy and patient-centred care are emphasized. He is also very passionate about Differential Diagnosis, in which he always strives to provide the highest level of assessment to each of his patients. His primary models of care include educating his patients about their current injuries and creating an understanding of how to avoid future injuries.

Why do you enjoy working at LiveWell?

“I enjoy working at LiveWell because of the strong sense of community connection that is reflected in the attitude of the patients and the team I work with. Physiotherapy was something that I fell into by luck but found to be the most amazing job – offering the chance to improve people’s life and wellness. As a physiotherapist, I love having the ability to connect with my patients and seeing them through their stages of recovery and prevention. As a Clinic Director, I am truly blessed to have such an amazing and strong team of colleagues to call friends. The entire team at LiveWell continues to work towards the common goal of wellness in their patients’ lives as well as their own.” – Greg

What makes your patients so special? 

“The patients at LiveWell are amazing because they are the ones that give us a chance to improve their lives by making the effort to come into the clinic. It takes a great amount of time and effort to improve your wellness, and without our patients, we wouldn’t have such an amazing clinic to work in.” – Greg

This sense of community strength is what makes our small communities so special, and I’m glad to be a part of an organization and team that reflects authenticity, honesty, and integrity.” – Mike
