Born and raised in beautiful Victoria, BC, Dale completed a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (Co-op) at the University of Victoria in 2014 and went on to earn a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of British Columbia in 2016. To continue his professional education he is currently completing a Post-Graduate Certificate in Pain through the University of Alberta.
Dale’s clinical interests include musculoskeletal and sporting injuries, pre- and post-operative rehabilitation, chronic pain management, and athletic performance. He has previous sport experience working with Team Ireland’s U19 Field Lacrosse team and the Junior A Nanaimo Timbermen lacrosse team.
His therapeutic approach involves active listening, thorough examination, quality education, individualized exercise prescription, targeted manual therapy, and Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS). Dale is a certified practitioner of Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), a dry needling technique designed to help manage persistent neuromuscular pain.
Dale is eager to offer Physiotherapy services to Vancouver Islanders looking to rehabilitate injuries, manage chronic impairments and pains, or optimize their physical activity capacity, thereby promoting their timely return to their favourite exercises, activities, or sports!
When not in the clinic Dale is an avid soccer player (and fan) who also enjoys trail running, lacrosse, and sailing.
Dale is an active registrant of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA), the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC), and the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia (PABC).
