Connor graduated from the University of Victoria with a Kinesiology degree and has recently returned to the island after completing his Masters in Physical Therapy from McMaster University in Hamilton Ontario. Connor is originally from Vancouver Island and grew up immersed in athletics and the outdoors in the Comox Valley. Connor was heavily involved in soccer, football, and rugby. He played with the U16 and U17 BC Provincial Rugby club as well as the U18 Canadian National Rugby Team representing Canada in World Championships in England. Various injuries in Rugby had him working closely with physiotherapists to get back on the field which sparked his interest in physiotherapy.
Connor is passionate about working alongside his patients to help them maximize their function and attain their goals. His treatment style includes manual therapy, emphasizing education to help patients understand the origin of their injury, and providing targeted exercises to help the origin of the injury and reduce the risk of reinjury.
Connor is excited to be back in Victoria where he can get back to playing club rugby, weightlifting, biking, hiking and exploring the city. You can find Connor outside enjoying the weather, or inside cheering on his beloved Vancouver Canucks (or Seattle Seahawks).
Connor is always advancing his manual therapy skills, obtaining dry needling credentials, and continuing to research evidence-based strategies to support patients with chronic pain conditions.
