Troy is from Rothesay New Brunswick and graduated from Dalhousie University in 2001. After completing 2 years of clinical practice in inpatient orthopaedics at the Saint John Regional Hospital in New Brunswick, Troy’s desire to pursue advanced education led him to drive halfway across the country to complete his Master of Research in Physical therapy at Western University, graduating in 2005. He has been in clinical practice as a physical therapist in London Ontario since then.
Troy’s further pursued professional development by becoming a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manual and Manipulative Physical Therapists (FCAMPT) in 2009 and completing a Clinical Doctorate in Physiotherapy in 2013. These credentials helped lead him to become an active instructor teaching advanced manual therapy skills to other physical therapists through the National Orthopaedic Division since 2010, and his role as an associate professor in Western University’s School of Physiotherapy since 2008. In 2011, Troy was awarded the Part-time Teaching Award of Excellence at Western (Health Sciences), as determined by student feedback and reviews.
Troy’s passion regarding education is the central core of his treatment approach. He is known for providing clear information to increase understanding of clinical conditions, and he ensures that patients are full partners in their goals and treatments. Troy offers a range of treatments including manual therapy, condition specific exercises, modalities (such as ultrasound), medical acupuncture/dry needling. Improving a patient’s personal knowledge is viewed by Troy as equally important as improving physical well-being to help ensure future success.
