Andrew Peters graduated from the School of Medical Rehabilitation – Physical Therapy of the Department of Medicine at the University of Manitoba in 2006. Upon graduation, he immediately began practicing in private practice in Barrie, Ontario. In 2009 Andrew relocated to Ottawa and has been working in orthopedic private practice ever since. Through his experience in private practice, Andrew has done extensive work with patients treating work place, motor vehicle, athletic and general lifestyle injuries. Through these avenues Andrew has provided rehabilitation for all ages and activity levels including pre-school children, retirees, weekend warriors and even OHL and professional hockey players. He worked with the Ottawa Senators of the NHL as the home treatment Physiotherapist from 2012-2017.
Andrew treats with a very hands-on manual approach and, as such, his post-graduate education has been aimed at advancing those skills. Courses taken include manual courses through the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, Myofascial Release, Strain-Counterstrain, Mulligan/mobilization with movement, Neural Mobility, Muscle Energy, Vestibular Rehab, Craniosacral Therapy, Acupuncture, and Dry Needling.
Andrew also has a keen interest in exercise prescription. He can develop sport-specific routines drawing from a history of playing multiple sports such as golf, hockey, basketball, badminton, soccer, tennis, and long distance running.
