Mark Ruggiero

Physiotherapist (WPO)

I love being a physiotherapist. Every day and every patient provides a new and exciting challenge. I especially enjoy diagnosing complex cases and implementing treatment strategies aimed at helping people move better, return to physical activity and optimize their physical function and mobility. 

My journey to becoming a physiotherapist began at a young age. Being involved in competitive sports from childhood on, I’ve landed on the sidelines more than a few times. The heartbreak of being unable to play the sports I loved and the admiration I felt for those who helped me recover were prime motivators to becoming a physiotherapist.

I obtained my Honours Bachelor of Kinesiology degree from McMaster University prior to becoming a Master of Physical Therapy at D’Youville College. I hold a Diploma of Manipulative Physiotherapy from the Orthopædic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, where I am an Assistant Instructor. I am CAFCI certified by the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute.
