Andrew Gaterell RPT, MScPT
Andrew uses a variety of hands-on and evidence-based manual therapy approaches in his therapy to help treat acute and chronic based movement and pain disorders, including:
Soft tissue release
McKenzie and Mulligan techniques
Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
A mixture of Western Acupuncture and Functional Dry Needling techniques
In addition, Andrew also has a strong background and extensive experience working with mild traumatic brain injuries (concussions). He works with individuals to help them manage their acute concussion symptoms, reduce the risk of developing post-concussion-syndrome (PCS), and help identify/reduce the impact of issues related to PCS. Andrew is certified to assess and treat concussion via CCMI.
Andrew graduated from the Master’s degree in Physical Therapy program at Queen’s University in 2013, after completing his Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics degree at the University of Ottawa. After graduating, he spent 3.5 years working and training overseas in Australia as a Physiotherapist.
In addition to his clinic-based work, Andrew is currently pursuing a diploma in sports physiotherapy with Sports Physiotherapy Canada (SPC). He has a longstanding interest and extensive experience working one-on-one with athletes of all levels, including in sports settings as a field/ice-level therapist. His team sports experiences include working with Division-1 Men's Rugby teams in Australia and as a therapist / on-ice trainer for the Carleton Place Canadian's Junior A CJHL Hockey Team. Andrew has had excellent success not only with injury recovery and prevention, but also in helping to improve any movement-related dysfunctions, which may be leading to pain or poor performance in any sport or activity. His main focus is on correcting and improving functional movement and athletic abilities regardless of the type of sport or activity.
Outside of practice, Andrew spends his time training and competing in individual and team sports. He is an avid competitive soccer player having competed in Canada, England and Australia. In addition to soccer, he spends his time mountain biking, rock climbing, running as well as strength and conditioning training. One of his current goals is to complete an Iron-Man.
