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

Update: March 11, 2022

Please note: The Provincial Government has removed the mask mandate for public spaces in BC.  Inside our clinic, we are requiring masks to be worn in common areas.  This is because a sizeable portion of our patients are elderly, immunocompromised, or in the highest risk levels.  Part of our responsibility as healthcare professionals is ensuring all patients have access to care – therefore we have a responsibility to ensure our environment is safe for everybody.  However, once you are inside a treatment room, masks can be taken off with mutual consent between a patient (yourself), and therapist.  This means if you want your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If both you and your therapist would like to remove your masks, you may.  We think this is a compromise which can accommodate nearly everybody.

Just a reminder, despite COVID-19 cases declining in BC, there is still community transmission.  This means there is at least some risk of COVID-19 transmission at our clinic.

NEW: We have installed HEPA air purifiers inside each of our treatment rooms to further try to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you for your continued support.  We hope everyone stays healthy.
