Treatment Philosophy

What Éric-Olivier loves most about physical therapy is his ability to have the chance to truly learn about his patient beyond the body mechanics. Getting to know patients allows him to better tailor his approach to procure the best treatment for their specific and unique needs. Éric-Olivier has a true passion for sports. He played at an elite level for over a decade in hockey and soccer. He has now recently made the switch toward competitive powerlifting in which he is looking forward to competing in the coming years. Training for over 12 years in the gym with a personal trainer and being himself a personal trainer allowed him to build a strong knowledge on exercise prescription for the general population as well as for improved athletic performances. Éric-Olivier is a strong advocate of the principle that physical exercise is often the best medicine. He considers physical therapy with collaboration in mind; the physiotherapist’s role as that of a guide to a patient involved in his own well-being. Hence, his treatments encourage the empowerment and self-efficacy of his patients. To that end, he favors a therapeutic style rooted in the McKenzie approach to diagnostic and prioritizes patient education and active forms of treatment. Such an approach usually minimizes the number of treatment necessary by giving the keys of well-being in the hands of the patient. Invested in his professional development, Éric-Olivier consistently enrolls in advanced professional training courses. Namely, he has completed Part A and B of the McKenzie institute and the outcome accountable clinician certification from IMC in 2021. In his free time, Éric-Olivier enjoys reading, writing articles, and going canoe-camping and playing hockey.

Story Highlight

I will never forget this patient. For privacy, we will call her Ms. D. Ms. D came to see me because her Quality of life was rapidly decreasing due to this intense pain she was experiencing in her entire leg. It had started as a simple ache in the hip and was now going all the way down to the arch of her foot a few weeks later. She was distressed because she was currently experiencing difficulties with walking and working. She could no longer sit for more than 20 minutes before having increased tingling and shooting pain down her leg. Some would describe what she was experiencing as a "sciatica or sciatic pain" I would call it HER pain. After a thorough assessment, it was apparent to me that her symptoms were most likely originating from her lower back. During the assessment, it was clear that her symptoms changed depending on how she moved her back. At first, she was skeptical as she didn't have pain in her lower back. But she trusted me, and we went on with determining which exercise she would go home with. We picked one very specific exercise that she had to do quite a few times per day, which took her roughly 5 minutes per day to do. She couldn't believe it; her pain was only going as low as her hip after 4 days of doing the exercise. We then went on to progress her exercise. After only 3 sessions, she no longer had any pain and felt empowered as she said that if ever this was to come back, she now had the tools to take care of it herself. This story, to me, is a simple example of my approach, we analyze, figure out first where the issue comes from, once we do, we find together what you can do at home to make it better between our sessions, and give you all the tools possible so that you become as autonomous and independent as one can be.

Expertise

S
Sports Physiotherapy
Whether to recover from an injury or optimize your performance to reach the next level, physical therapy can help you. By selecting the proper exercises and managing training volume, it is possible to reach almost any goal. Having worked with athletes from all sports and levels (weekend warriors to international level), I will be able to adapt my approach according to your specific sport and expectation. My first goal is always to have you miss as little game time as possible safely.
B
Back pain
Back pain is no stranger. More than 80% of people will, at some point in their life, experience back pain. Back pain is debilitating and often very limiting. Through advanced post-graduate courses and seeing patients dealing with it on a daily basis, I built an expertise in back pain. It isn't "normal" to experience back pain for months. You deserve a pain-free life. It will be my pleasure to guide you toward this goal.
N
Neck pain
Neck pain can be debilitating, giving headaches and stopping you from doing what you enjoy and even working. Neck pain is not always as tricky as it might seem. Through advanced post-graduate courses and seeing patients dealing with it daily, I built an expertise in neck pain. Very often, and most likely in your case, it only takes one or two exercises to get back in motion and significantly reduce the pain and limitations.
K
Knee pain
From knee pain when walking to knee pain when sitting for a long time at work or when waking up in the morning, I have seen them all. Knee pain has this tendency to get better fast with the need for only a few simple exercises. Let me guide you toward those exercises.
S
Shoulder pain
There are multiple reasons why a shoulder might hurt. It could be from muscles, ligaments, the joint itself of the shoulder, or very often is due to a neck or upper back problem. During the assessment, we will identify the primary source of your pains and limitations and, from there, determine the correct exercises to get you back to your old self.

Avant de rencontrer Éric-Olivier, j'avais des gros bloquages au bas du dos. AprĂšs plusieurs consultations avec des physio, chiros, kinĂ©sithĂ©rapeute, je me trouvais toujours Ă  dĂ©penser pour des sĂ©ances Ă  chaque semaine qui ne menaient Ă  rien. J'Ă©tais dĂ©couragĂ©. Qui pouvait m'aider?? AprĂšs quelques recherches sur google, j'ai tomber sur le profil d'Éric-Olivier oĂč j'ai lu Ă  propos de son approche unique (McKenzie). J'ai donc pris la chance d'essayer. DĂšs la premiĂšre consultation avec Éric-Olivier, j'ai compris que cette approche n'Ă©tais pas comme les autres. Sans mĂȘme me toucher, avec quelque simples testes debout et assis, Éric-Olivier en est venu Ă  la thĂ©orie que mon problĂšme n'Ă©tais pas musculaire, mais osseux. Je suis parti avec 1 seul exercice trĂšs simple, Ă  faire 5 Ă  10x par jour. 2 jours plus tard, mon bloquage que j'avais depuis 6+ mois avais disparu a 75%. Nous avons fait une 2e sĂ©ance, encore 2-3 petit testes, et me revoilĂ  chez nous avec le mĂȘme exercice. 1 semaine plus tard, mon problĂšme de dos est presque disparu, j'ai senti une trĂšs grande satisfaction. Finalement une vraie solution, facile et simple. Nous avons fait une troisiĂšme sĂ©ance pour vĂ©rifier le tout et voilĂ  le travail est fait. Me voilĂ  de retour au gym. AprĂšs 3 sĂ©ances (1x 1h et 2x 30 minutes) Éric-Olivier a rĂ©ussit Ă  rĂ©gler un problĂšme que j'ai passer + de 6 mois Ă  essayer de rĂ©gler Nul besoin de vous dire que je recommande fortement cette clinique. Lance tout ce que tu sais Ă  propos d'une sĂ©ance traditionnelle de physio dans les vidanges. Cette approche est complĂštement diffĂ©rente et vaut le dĂ©tour. 5 Ă©toiles, c'est Ă  lui que je vais rĂ©fĂ©rer tout mes amis et famille
