Elias Peixoto

MScPT, BASc Kin Registered Physiotherapist, Certified Personal Trainer

Elias is a well-rounded and compassionate physiotherapist who is determined to get his patients back to feeling their best again! He pulls from multiple areas of expertise – combining his physiotherapy knowledge with his many years of experience as a fitness and personal trainer. Physiotherapy was instrumental in his own recovery from sports-induced injuries (including long-term pain), and as such, he is passionate about his profession and the benefits of physiotherapy. Elias uses a multitude of hands-on approaches as well as targeted movement and exercise instruction to treat everything from standard aches and pains, to sporting injuries, to chronic pain. He has completed continuing education in acupuncture and dry needling techniques, and is further advancing his manual therapy skills through post-graduate coursework through the Orthopaedic Division of the CPA. Elias also has experience working with patients with facial nerve paralysis (Bell’s Palsy), TMJ dysfunction/jaw pain, as well as post-concussion symptoms, and provides an evidence-based and tailored approach to his patients with these conditions.

Elias grew up with a very active lifestyle, including competing in Taekwondo and soccer.  He obtained his Masters in Physiotherapy at Brunel University in the United Kingdom, and prior to this completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Kinesiology at University of Guelph-Humber, and his Fitness and Health Diploma from Humber College.  Always eager to expand his physiotherapy toolbox, he is pursuing advanced coursework in acupuncture/dry needling, orthopaedic manual therapy, chronic pain management and other special populations.

Whether you’ve just had an injury, or are seeking answers to a chronic condition, Elias will provide exceptional care in determining the most effective path forward, coaching and encouraging you along the way.  He loves his work, and it shows!
