Matthew McGill, PT
Matt completed his Bachelor of Science in Honours Psychology from the University of Waterloo in 2012. His strong interests in neuroscience and sports led to completing his Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Queen’s University in 2017. Originally from Kitchener, Matt joined Waterloo Sports Medicine after spending time working in Peterborough where he provided physiotherapy services for a wide variety of conditions ranging from musculoskeletal injuries, to vertigo and vestibular issues, to catastrophic neurological conditions.
Matt has been involved in many sports from a young age including soccer, volleyball, badminton, basketball, track and field, and cross-country. While at university, he discovered ultimate frisbee, and competed with both the University of Waterloo and Queen’s University varsity teams, winning a national championship with Queen’s in 2016. Matt continues to play ‘ultimate’ around town, and can also be found running on his favourite paths in KW.
Because of Matt’s passion for helping those affected by neurological injury to meet their activity goals and overcome participation restrictions, he joined Kim at KW Neuro Rehab which operates within WSM. He has completed several courses related to neurological rehabilitation including Management of Spinal Cord Injuries, and attended the Traumatic Brain Injury conference in Toronto in 2018.
