Personality

Grant is Grant.  Not much more to say.  He sings loudly, louder even when asked if he “ever shuts up.” He works longer, has more fun, and is known as the human form of the energizer bunny. A former hockey goalie, rugby scrum half, football wide receiver, soccer midfielder, he is a born competitor and strategist who initially found his outlet in sport.  He has for the past 17 years redirected his unique energy, efforts and caring at managing the pain and injuries of his patients.  He is certainly more stubborn than any of your injuries might be.

  • Favorite book – he didn’t read a book cover to cover until he completed a microbiology text book in his first year at the U of A.  He has since filled several book shelves, and you won’t get him to choose just one favorite book!
  • Favorite sport – he’s played most of them:  soccer, waterskiing, wakeboarding, downhill skiing, hockey, football, tennis, squash, rugby, golf. If it’s competitive, it’s his favorite  (but not basketball, he’s too short to be good at it)
  • Favorite movie – Goodwill Hunting and Dead Poets Society
  • Favorite Hobby – work!  He can’t get enough of it
  • Clinical Pet Peeve – germs, we can’t keep the clinic sterile enough
  • Something you may not know about him – he loves Tupperware and wears nose plugs to water ski
  • Staff say – “this physio has more energy than a locomotive without even a drop of caffeine and puts most of that energy into his patients and the business of taking away your pain.  He is a veteran of physical therapy and should stick with it, because we all know he can never fall back on his singing career.”
  • Superhuman Talent – he can sing the first 5 words of almost any song on the radio (”sing ” might be overstating it a bit) – unless being put on the spot by Andrew Gross of 630 ched

  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points, which have been empirically proven effective in the treatment of specific disorders. The Chinese have mapped these points over a period of 2000 years and we know where they are. Like knowing the streets and buildings of a city will help you to your destination, knowing these points and utilizing them effectively can assist with many painful conditions to get you where you want to be.

    Graston Technique is a soft tissue mobilization technique utilizing specially designed tools to assist athletes and individuals with their injuries.
