The main focus of patient treatment is centred on the integration of radial and focused shockwave therapy as part of the regenerative medicine healing pathway to assist with recovery from injuries that have failed to respond to traditional treatments (e.g., chronic tendinopathies, wound healing, non-uniting fractures, stress fractures) and myofascial pain syndromes (e.g., trigger point therapy, fibromyalgia).
The clinicians at Active Potential Rehabilitation Services have advanced training in manual therapy, orthopedics, and neurology. They are committed to ongoing learning, the development, presentation, and publication of new research and the advancement of clinical skills. They strive to provide advanced, cutting edge, high quality, client centered, and evidence based care in a relaxed, caring, respectful, and professional environment.
The educational programs and courses offered to patients and healthcare providers are based on the most up to date research and evidence in the evaluation, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.

He completed his undergraduate physiotherapy degree from the University of Toronto; his master's degree from Lakehead University; and his doctorate degree from Andrews University. His advanced training has included manual and manipulative therapy techniques, acupuncture, and the use of radial and focused shockwave therapy. He has also published 4 textbooks on the use of length tension techniques in the examination of muscle flexibility; numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals; and presented extensively at provincial, national, and international conferences. Over the years, Paolo has been instrumental in introducing the use of medical shockwave therapy to this region and has successfully treated hundreds of patients with various musculoskeletal tendinopathies successfully.
