Jamie graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1998. Over the course of his 18 year career he has had experience in various settings, including: hospital, multi-disciplinary centres, industrial rehabilitation, physiotherapy consulting, independent physiotherapy examinations, functional capacity evaluations, and the outpatient clinic setting.
A “life long learner,” he strives to keep up to date with numerous continuing education courses, and constant reading of information and research.
His study interests have included function and exercise, and he has built a reputation for using an active, movement-based approach. He has a special interest in pain science, and the effective treatment of pain – all pain, from the acute stage to chronic or persistent pain. He receives direct referrals from physicians, specialists, and disability insurers. He has been invited to speak on various topics to physicians, physiotherapists and students, and others in the rehabilitation community.
Using a biopsychosocial approach, his treatment considers the whole person, and he spends a significant amount of one-on-one time with his clients. His treatment typically includes patient education, exercise/movement, and may include manual therapy. Clinically, while he has had a focus for most of his career on the injured worker, he sees people of all ages and backgrounds.
Away from the clinic, his interests include studying/reading, golf, and spending quality time with his wife and daughter.
