Joshua Grawbarger, MScPT, BScKin

Joshua completed his Master’s of Science in Physiotherapy from McMast University. He completed his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo.

During his time at the University of Waterloo, Joshua discovered his passion for working with athletes and for rehabilitation. He was a strength and conditioning coach for the varsity sports teams and volunteered in a low back research lab. And he worked in a Sport Physiotherapy Fellowship at the University of Guelph upon completing physiotherapy school. 

Joshua is passionate about working with his patients in a collaborative fashion to help them achieve their goals, and get back to living a healthy, active lifestyle. He does this by providing a blend of manual therapy and exercise, with an emphasis on education to provide patients with an understanding of their injury and the tools to be active participant in their recovery. 

Growing up as a multisport athlete, Joshua had his fair share of injuries and often found himself in the clinic of his physiotherapist, who always helped him in managing his injuries allowing him to compete at his best. He is originally from Sault Ste. Marie Ontario.

When not in the clinic, Joshua enjoys hiking, running, cycling, and is currently getting into swimming! He will be competing in his first triathlon at 70.3 Ironman Victoria in May 2024.

Took the time to explain

“I visited Arbutus Physiotherapy while experiencing pain in my neck and back which was significantly limiting my mobility. The reception staff was professional and friendly. Scott (the Physio) worked with me for four sessions and now I am pain free with my mobility restored. What stood out for me was how Scott took the time to explain what the problem was, sent me videos of exercises and of course he worked on me during the four visits. Scott is simply a nice guy who knows his stuff! Thank you for fixing me, Scott! Cheers, Neil”
