Physiotherapist

BKin., MPT

Amar graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor’s of Kinesiology, and Masters Degree of Physical Therapy. Amar was part of the Northern and Rural Cohort at UBC where he completed clinical placements in rural communities allowing him to see a wide variety of patients. Through this experience, he was able to utilize numerous techniques to assist patients’ in their rehabilitation journey.

Amar has a keen interest in treating injuries related to sports, orthopedics, and MVA’s. He also enjoys helping patients with back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain. Amar’s approach to therapy is to provide patient-centered evidence-based care through education, manual therapy, and exercise prescription. His treatment is rooted in providing one-on-one care and spending the necessary time to formulate a plan of action alongside his clients to achieve their goals. He’s a continuous learner, always looking to advance his skills and knowledge. Currently, he is pursuing his orthopedic levels, sports physiotherapy certification, and dry needling.

Amar’s interest in physiotherapy began from his own personal experience with injuries and rehab through sports. He was fascinated by the way his physiotherapist was able to use multiple different techniques to get him game-ready as quickly as possible. From there, he began looking into the steps required to become a physiotherapist himself.

Amar is fluent in English and Punjabi, and can serve patients in both languages. When he is not in the clinic, Amar is either enjoying a good book or playing basketball.

COVID 19 NOTICE

We have re-opened our clinic for patients as of May 19, 2020!

Our number one priority during this time is ensuring our patients, staff and therapists stay safe. To achieve this, we’ve spent considerable time reviewing all guidelines put forth by WorkSafeBC, the Provincial Health Officer, and our licensing Colleges. To meet these guidelines, we’ve made lots of changes to how our clinic looks, and how we do things. We admit there’ll be some hiccups. When we find a new procedure or policy that doesn’t work, we’ll change it to make it better. In these unprecedented times, we’re all learning as we go.

As our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, likes to say “We’re all in this together.” Just like our therapists and staff are changing how they work to keep you safe, we’re asking you, our patients, to change a few things too. Don’t worry, none of them are hard. We just ask for your diligence and understanding to help keep us and our families safe too.

We’ve compiled a list on our website of all the changes we’ve made to ensure our clinic remains as safe as possible. Once you click the “go to website” button, you’ll see a link on our homepage. Please take the time to review, and if you have any questions or need clarification, just give us a call or shoot us an email.

Thank you for your continued loyalty, understanding, and cooperation.
