Regardless of how you find yourself in physical pain or dysfunction, it’s likely taking a toll on your usual activities. Linc’s physio practice over the last 19 years has focused on improving patients’ symptoms and returning them to their previous levels of activity. Following thorough assessment, he individualizes treatment using a wide range of hands-on techniques including manual therapy, acupuncture, dry needling and myofascial release. He believes in the power of being able to manage one’s own condition, and devotes much attention to teaching each person about their condition and providing tools (judicious exercises and other techniques) to assist in moving forward.
In addition to treating a wide range of orthopedic conditions, he treats males with various pelvic floor complaints, such as urinary and bowel difficulties, erectile problems, and pain in the genital, saddle and tailbone areas. He has studied male pelvic floor dysfunction with experts in Canada and the USA. Balance and dizziness is another area of special interest.
Linc studied at the University of Saskatchewan, and was awarded his BSc and the Gold Medal in Physical Therapy in 1999. Since then, he has practiced in private orthopedic and sports injury clinics in Saskatoon and Calgary. He has certifications from Acupuncture Canada and the University of Alberta’s Medical Acupuncture program, and he’s a certified practitioner of Gokavi transverse dry-needling technique. He’s completed many myofascial release courses with John Barnes and others, and a series of Integrated Systems Model courses with L.J. Lee.
Pelvic pain is very common in men, with estimates of about 1 in 9 men suffering from pain across the underside somewhere between the pubic bone and tailbone. We call this the “perineal region”. The main nerve that provides sensation and muscle control in the perineal region is the pudendal nerve.
Many men are surprised to learn that they have something called a “pelvic floor”.
Physiotherapy is often helpful in treating testicular pain when joints, nerves or muscles are involved.
