Physiotherapy

Our Approach

 

Movement problems? We’ve got movement solutions with our approach to Physiotherapy.

 

Looking for a different approach to Physiotherapy? With a focus on movement and exercise-based rehab, our Physiotherapists use a dedicated and direct treatment philosophy to bring you from pain to performing your daily activities of life without discomfort.

 

Contrary to many Physiotherapists, we treat our members with care and evidence-based treatments that go beyond simply applying heat and pads. At MYo Lab, by stretching and strengthening—addressing weaknesses and dysfunction—we move in order to keep you moving.

 

Our Process

 

During your first visit with your Physiotherapist, we will gain insight on your health history in order to uncover the underlying cause of your pain. Then, after an individualized movement assessment and examination, your Physiotherapist will determine how to correct your dysfunction, and develop your treatment plan to help you move forward with your life.

Daniel Lawson | MPT, BAKin, ISST Schroth Therapist

Physiotherapist

 

Dan was a competitive distance runner, hockey player and competed semi-professionally in kick boxing/Muay Thai in Japan. He found a passion for physical therapy while self-rehabbing the many, many injuries he and his teammates sustained boxing.

 

Areas of Passion

 

Running Injuries: humans are ‘born to run’ as Christopher McDougall put it, and there is no experience quite like running. However, like any repetitive mechanical movement, overtraining and/or poor motor patterning can result in recurring pain and injury.

 

Low and Mid Back Issues: Dan has struggled with back issues caused by idiopathic scoliosis since his teens, which fostered an empathy and drive in him to help those with back problems.

 

Seniors (55+): Dan enjoys working with seniors to maintain their functionality and quality of life. He also enjoys hearing nostalgic stories from back in the day.
