Patrick Dasko

Patrick is a full blown exercise nerd. Who does a bit of everything himself. He has spent years doing strength training in the gym, regularly goes on 100+km bike rides, dances salsa/bachata, and engages in various team sports based on the season. Extremely active himself, he has a deep understanding of how difficult and challenging it can be to deal with injuries and not being able to do what you love. 

He takes a very client centred approach trying to keep his clients as active as possible while rehabbing their aches and injuries, so that they can get back to being the best versions of himself.

A session with Patty will involve a thorough history and physical assessment. Followed by a customised treatment plan and explanation of what's going on. He will work to get you in charge of your body and life as best he can.

A session may involve some hands therapy, some deep tissue massage, or dry needling. Always coupled with some movements and exercise to help heal and rebuild.
