Furthermore, he has received training in concussion and vestibular rehab. Taylor is also interested in pursuing courses in dry needling, McKenzie low back management and treatment for running injuries.
Taylor’s treatment strategy always revolves around the functional goals of his patients. One of the first questions he asks upon working with a new client, is “What would you like to get back to doing?”. Once a goal has been established, Taylor works in collaboration with his clients to achieve these goals. Taylor delivers treatment with a great deal of empathy and compassion for his clients. He strives to provide evidence-based therapy with a strong focus on exercise and education. He believes in motivating his clients in taking an active approach in their rehabilitation to meet their individual goals. In addition to his emphasis on self-management, Taylor utilizes his skills in manual therapy and acupuncture as an adjunct therapy to help his patients return to what they love participating in.
Taylor has always been passionate about sport and in his youth he competed in hockey, lacrosse and cross country running. Now in his spare time, Taylor participates in mid and long-distance running and as such, he has a keen interest in the rehabilitation of running-related injuries. In addition to running, he also enjoys weight lifting, playing hockey and cycling.
