Joseph Kaldas is a physical therapist graduate of McGill University. He is fluent in English and French and can speak Arabic.
Joseph obtained his bachelor of science in physical therapy in 2002. He then went on to graduate studies at McGill University. His major interest of study was the brain’s ability to change. Through his involvement in academic research, Joseph has had the privilege of presenting his work at the 2002 Canadian Congress of Physical Therapy in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He also presented his work at the 2003 World Congress of Physical Therapy (WCPT) in Barcelona, Spain. In 2004, Joseph received his master of science applied in rehabilitation sciences with a thesis centred on physical therapy outcome measurements for vertigo and dizziness conditions.
Joseph is a physical therapist working in an orthopaedic setting. His major orthopaedic clinical interests are motor control and kinetic dysfunctions and the manual therapy treatment of injuries. Following the completion of his master’s degree, he continued working with conditions pertaining to vertigo, dizziness and the vestibular system. Through his years of practice, Joseph has always made it a priority to stay up-to-date with the scientific literature related to physical therapy treatment of orthopaedic conditions. This has lead him to follow many post-graduate continuing education courses offered by l’Ordre professionnel de la physiothérapie du Québec (OPPQ) and the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA), as well as courses offered by experts from countries such as England, Australia and the United States.
Outside of physical therapy, Joseph is a fan of winter. You will find him snowshoeing up the hills in the Montérégie and skiing down the slopes in the Eastern Townships. During his years as a student, he was a lifeguard and spent many summers teaching swimming and lifeguarding lessons.
