ROMAN

ROMAN IZQUIERDO

 Roman became interested in physiotherapy after having suffered from chronic and acute pain issues as an athlete and student.  He was particularly interested in the benefits derived from exercise when prescribed as medicine due to its global effects on the body.  Roman finished his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with the highest distinctions (Summa Cum Laude) from York University in 2013.  He went on to complete his M.Sc. in Physical Therapy from the University of Western Ontario in 2016.  To serve his patients better Roman has extended his education with courses in acupuncture/dry needling, manual therapy (Level 1-Ortho Div), and Myofascial Release techniques.  He also intends to attain certification in McKenzie based approaches and FRC principles.  Roman has also had the privilege of working with private clients as a certified personal trainer under the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology since 2011.

His treatment approach is a combination of: joint mobilization,  myofascial and neural release, accupuncture, cupping, therapeutic and corrective exercises, as well as ultrasound, electro-therapy, and  Shockwave therapy as needed.

 

Roman works hard to understand you and your goals so as to develop a treatment program tailored to your needs, desires, wishes and preferences.  He is especially keen on empowering clients to learn about their bodies and to find ways to manage their pain, mobility and fitness from a preventative rather than reactive approach.  Although he enjoys working with athletes, weekend warriors and sport enthusiasts he also finds particular fulfilment in working with all age groups through a broad range of injuries from acute to chronic.
