The Team at The Clinic on Elm

Geoff Strong, Registered Physiotherapist

Geoff joined the Clinic on Elm team in the fall of 2015. Geoff attended Notre Dame College High School in Welland. An avid athlete, he received a baseball scholarship and attended Niagara University, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelors in Science. He then attended McMaster University in Hamilton and completed his Masters of Physiotherapy in 2013.

Prior to joining our clinic, Geoff had the opportunity to work in some busy orthopaedic clinics in Cambridge and Waterdown which helped him to develop and extend his treatment knowledge. These opportunities allowed Geoff to gain an interest in treating orthopedic injuries using a combination of exercise, manual therapy and education to aid in the patient’s recovery. Additionally, Geoff has certification in acupuncture.

Geoff is active in the community. A Toronto Blue Jays fan, he has a strong interest in baseball and is a skilled pitcher. In his spare time, he enjoys working out at the gym.

It is our pleasure to have Geoff as a part of our team.

Joe Pagliaro, Registered Physiotherapist

Joe began his post-secondary education at Niagara College in Welland, where he obtained his diploma in Fitness and Health Promotion, also gaining experience as a Certified Personal Trainer through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. Joe then went on to complete his H.B.A.Sc in Kinesiology from the University of Guelph-Humber in Toronto, before attending McMaster University in Hamilton, where he obtained his Physiotherapy degree in 2017.

 

Joe combines his knowledge of exercise physiology with hands on manual therapy skills and therapeutic modalities to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation package tailored to each individual. He utilizes an active rehabilitation approach, empowering individuals with the skills and guidance required for them to reach their goals. Joe believes in updating his knowledge and skills through research and continuing education. He has completed courses in soft tissue release, acupuncture, and attends annual Physiotherapy symposiums.
