Colin Davies quote - Colin Davies Physiotherapy - Vancouver, BC

Colin Davies is a licensed physiotherapist specializing in the assessment and treatment of common muscle and joint problems. After graduating in 1971, he became a clinical associate of Robin McKenzie, the founder of the McKenzie Method of musculoskeletal assessment and treatment.

"Working with Robin McKenzie was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The results that he achieved using simple movements and postures were so powerful that I began specializing in the McKenzie approach. 45 years later it still excites me.”

Physiotherapy Treatment Philosophy

“I learned from Robin McKenzie the importance of empowering patients to treat themselves. I apply this principle to every patient.”
