Pat Young


Pat graduated with a Master of Science in Physiotherapy (MScPT) from Dalhousie University in 2012 and has worked at Beaverbank Physiotherapy ever since. Additionally, he works as a part-time lab instructor at Dalhousie University in the Orthopaedic department and thoroughly enjoys aiding the development of the future profession by regularly taking students in clinical placements. Prior to attending Dalhousie, he went to Memorial University and completed his Bachelor of Science in Biology (BScBio).  

In 2016 he received his diploma of Manipulative Physiotherapy through the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT). He has taken numerous courses in Shirley Sahrmann’s Movement System impairment model while also studying treatment approaches such as dry needling, acupuncture, vestibular rehabilitation, myofascial mobilization, pain education, taping, and Stuart McGill’s back rehabilitation. Pat has also taken specific courses focused on the treatment of runners, ACL post operative repairs, and Crossfit athlete populations. 

Growing up in Bridgetown, N.S., Patrick participated competitively and recreationally in a variety of sports including ice and ball hockey, canoeing, swimming, tennis, basketball, soccer, and baseball. Eventually relocating to St. John’s, NL he worked on developing his character as an honoree Newfoundlander while spending summers between the West Coast of Canada and Edinburgh, Scotland. Outside of work, he enjoys being an active and exhausted father of two “energetic” young children. Pat continues to live the dream of being the best middle aged hockey player he can be while rehabilitating his consequential injuries of living the life as a weekend warrior. 
Patrick loves working with patients of all ages while tailoring each patient’s exercise program to the requirements of their sport, occupation, hobbies, and lifestyle with a focus on a functional goal. He strongly believes in the power of patient education and exercise prescription as therapeutic tools and hold a strong interest in manual therapy as a supplement to promote the healing progression. His treatment philosophy integrates balance and motor control into a holistic treatment plan incorporating therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, postural and ailment education. He loves the social component of his job and tries to make physiotherapy enjoyable and interesting to all his patients.
