Bone and Joint expert finds physiotherapy moves Canada during cross-country investigation

Dave Walton, considered one of Canada’s foremost authorities on musculoskeletal trauma and rehabilitation, traveled more than 12,000 kilometres this past summer in an effort to better understand how physiotherapists were rehabilitating injured Canadians and amplifying lifelong mobility from coast to coast to coast.

A key investigator at Western University’s Bone and Joint Institute, Walton spoke with more than 150 clinicians and their clients over a two-month period during his Physio Moves Canada tour that started in St. John's, Newfoundland and ended in Whitehorse, Yukon.

Walton collected an unprecedented amount of data during the campaign that he believes will lead to considerable impact not only on the practice of physiotherapy in Canada but internationally, as well.

The initial findings of Physio Moves Canada will be presented on Thursday, February 8 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at Western’s Elborn College, Room 1330.

“This is arguably one of the most ambitious academic projects in the history of Canadian physiotherapy,” says Walton. “No one has ever done this kind of project before and I can’t wait to start sharing the wealth of information that I gained speaking with so many incredible Canadians.”

Walton’s focus covers a wide range of topics including threats, opportunities, research priorities, educational reforms, innovations in practice and the overall meaning of lifelong mobility to Canadians. is distributed twice weekly; Tuesday and Thursday
