James is a Physiotherapist based in Toronto providing Physical Therapy services to individuals in home anywhere in the GTA and in clinic at Avenue and Bloor. James is an engaging, fun, empathetic and, most importantly, effective physiotherapist who believes that beside improving how you look and feel, working toward peak physical function is an excellent avenue for general personal development that can spill over into other areas of living.
James has an extensive background in Physiotherapy and physical conditioning. He holds a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy (Queen’s University ’10) and also the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) designation from the National Strength and Conditioning Association. James has years of extensive manual physiotherapy training and is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT) which is the gold standard for advanced level physiotherapy training in Canada. James is also certified in Integrated Dry Needling, which is a great treatment for managing myofascial (muscle) pain. James is an amateur athlete of many stripes (and skill levels!), a coach, teacher, speaker, and all around fantastic guy!
James works with a wide variety of populations to improve physical performance for use on the field and in day-to-day life. He develops rehabilitation protocols firmly rooted in exercise science but applied with the art required of a health professional.

Vanessa is a Master’s level trained Physiotherapist from McGill University, with a keen interest in Return-to-Sport. She has recently moved back to her hometown of Toronto from London, England where she gained valuable experience working with Chelsea Football Club and in private clinic focusing in orthopaedics, hydrotherapy (physiotherapy in the pool) and sport injury.
Vanessa is outstanding in every way and we are lucky here at Braithwaite Physiotherapy to have her working with us. Her extensive experience as a varsity collegiate athlete (both as a swimmer and as a coach) has helped her understand the demands of life and athletics on the body and she can relate personally to many of the the injuries seen in clinic.
Vanessa is a tour de force, both in person and also in personality and is an absolute delight to work with. She looks forward to helping you to move beautifully, whatever your level of need.
