Glen Young graduated from the University of Manitoba Bachelor of Medical Rehabilitation in May 1989. That’s right - it is not a typo; he has been working for 31 years in the private practice setting treating mainly orthopedic/sports conditions.
The clinic prides itself on an active exercised based treatment approach. Passive modalities (laser, shockwave, ultrasound, electrical and acupuncture) are used only during the acute phase of treatment as they usually only provide temporary relief of your symptoms. You will then be given specific activities/postures to avoid or limit and stretching and strengthening exercises to help treat the cause of your pain.
Glen has taken post education courses in the field of Acupuncture, Trigger Point, Muscle Imbalances, Norwegian Medical Exercise Therapy, Myofascial Release, McKenzie Back exercises, Manual Therapy, Orthopedic and Sports Physiotherapy.
