Hi, I’m Jeff. I was born and raised in Edmonton. I grew up playing sports, mainly hockey and football and snowboarding. After a taking a sports medicine class in high school sparked an interest in sports injuries and human biology, I decided to pursue a degree in kinesiology (formerly physical education, BPE) at the university of Alberta with a concentration in active living, health and well-being. While initially starting with a more athletic population, my practise has grown to include patients of all types. My youngest patient is 8 weeks olds and my oldest is 94years, as healthy movement is equally important to everyone. It’s great to be able to use my skills to treat the cause of a person’s issues and not just the symptoms. People are are often amazed at how such a seemingly serious problem can have such a simple solution. It’s nice to be able to give people big improvements by just making very small “adjustments” to their movements, habits, and body.
