Brendan has been a practicing physiotherapist since 1998 after graduating from the University of Western Ontario with a Bachelors of Science (Physical Therapy). After initially working in the public hospital system and then at the University of Waterloo with their student athletes, he left Canada to explore physiotherapy overseas. His six year journey led him to practicing in England, Scotland, New Zealand and Australia, along the way obtaining a Masters in Manipulative Physiotherapy from the University of Otago, leading to his recognition as a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists (FCAMPT). This also re-ignited his passion for providing field coverage to sports teams which continues to this daySince returning to Canada he has continued to push his professional limits.
He holds an AFCI Certificate in Acupuncture, is a NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and a Sport Physiotherapy Canada Certificate holder. He has provided on field coverage for many different sports and events including seven seasons of club rugby (in Canada and New Zealand) and the 2010 Ottawa Race Weekend. He joined Diving Canada in 2010 as a member of their therapy team and since then has travelled with our junior and senior national teams to Arizona and Russia for competitions. Most recently joined the Gloucester Griffins Jr. C lacrosse team as a therapist for their 2011 season.
