David White was born in Victoria and raised in North Saanich. He attended Simon Fraser University and graduated from the School of Kinesiology in 1985. During his time at SFU he worked as a Physiotherapist’s assistant and gained valuable experience and training in the practices of acute care physiotherapy. At that time the idea of “Sports Medicine” was in its infancy, and David took the opportunity to start the first active oriented rehabilitation clinic in western Canada.
Since then David has specialized in exercise rehabilitation and adaptive fitness and gained 30 years of experience. David works in one-on-one and group rehabilitation settings, working with people who have been injured at work, in motor vehicle accidents, in sports related activities, and recovering from surgical procedures. David also has experience with individuals with Parkinson’s, MS, and other neurological problems including stroke recovery. His passion is to assist those with injuries to gain control and function in their lives through evidence-based biomechanical treatment and exercise prescription both in dry land and aquatic environments.
