He graduated with a Masters in Physiotherapy from the University of Alberta in 2019, and joined the 4 Points team in early 2022. Prior to completing his physiotherapy program, he graduated from MacEwan University with a Bachelors of Science degree while also playing with the varsity volleyball team for 5 years. Matt uses a variety of manual therapy techniques in conjunction with individualized therapeutic exercise, while also placing a high emphasis on patient education and self management strategies. He is also certified in Therapeutic Dry Needling, which can be a very effective tool to reduce trigger points, alleviate pain, and normalize neuromuscular function.

 

At 4 Points, we try to provide physiotherapy services a little differently than a lot of clinics out there. We offer longer assessment times, 1 on 1 treatment throughout the entirety of the booked session, and a focus on evidence-based therapy. So if you’re tired of minimal face-to-face time with your physio, your physio bouncing between multiple clients, or laying on a bed with passive modalities (heat, ice, ultrasound, etc) being used for a majority of your treatment, come give us a shot!
