Shaun Lapenskie, Registered Physiotherapist

B.Sc.PT (Canada), M.Manip.PT (Australia), tDPT (USA), FCAMPT, CAFCI
Fellow, Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists
Certified, Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute

Shaun graduated from the Physiotherapy Program at the University of  Western Ontario in 1997, and in 2000 completed a Masters degree at  Curtin University in Perth, Australia in the area of orthopaedic  physiotherapy. In 2013, he completed a post-professional Doctor of  Physical Therapy diploma through the EIM Institute of Health Professions  in the United States, with a focus on musculoskeletal physiotherapy.


Shaun served six years on the executive (two as president) and is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists. He is an adjunct lecturer in the Physiotherapy program at the  University of Toronto, has been a clinical mentor for students at the  University of Western Ontario and is currently Chair of the Manual  Therapy Steering Committee of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.


Shaun’s practice focuses on patients with complicated musculoskeletal  disorders of the spine and extremities, and his caseload includes a  wide cross-section of people from the surrounding community, from  athletic kids to active seniors. He is also a physiotherapy provider to  the members of the Canadian Forces at Base Borden, just outside of  Barrie. He continues to work with athletes of all abilities, including  national and international-calibre competitors.


Shaun’s treatment approach focuses heavily on patient education and  giving people the tools to help themselves. Hands-on manual therapy,  specifically-tailored active exercise and acupuncture all feature  prominently in his treatment approach. This broad-based approach to  patient management allows him to reduce pain by re-training altered  movement patterns, improving mobility and addressing the psychosocial  components of pain.
