Your body contains a history of all its days – all the stresses, accidents, and illnesses leave their mark and your body adjusts to deal with them. One of the things I love most about my job is creating a safe, personal space for people to connect with their body. I work with them to peel back the layers, find the source of their problem, and create a solution.Robert Fong, B.App.Sc.(PT)

About Robert

Robert (Bob) has been a co-owner of Jericho Physio since 1996. He completed his training in Sydney, Australia in 1987 at the Cumberland College of Health Sciences, worked in Australia and England, traveled widely, and then settled in Vancouver and began practising at Jericho in 1990 (when it was known as West 10th Physiotherapy).

As his practice developed, Bob began to see that the solution to his clients’ problems lay in treating their bodies as an interconnected system. “Once I’d treated a client’s initial source of pain, I’d often find another layer of injury from years ago that was the true source of their problem – like an old ankle sprain that was now causing chronic mid-back pain,” he recalls.

Bob continued to refine his methods, pursuing post-graduate training in Orthopedic Manual Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, (he was a teaching assistant with the Upledger Institute from 1998 to 2002), Visceral Manipulation, and Myofascial Release.

As he worked on a range of clients and issues – from elite athletes with sports injuries, to aging seniors with hip problems – Bob developed his own unique blend of gentle, non-invasive treatment techniques that proved extremely effective in treating complex conditions and chronic pain.

These skills, along with his sports physiotherapy background and experience as a competitive soccer and racquetball player, led him to the position of team physiotherapist for both the Canadian National Racquetball Team (2002-06, 2016-present) and the Meraloma Rugby team (2004/5 season) – Go Lomas! In the spring of 2017, Bob served as the Canadian team physio at the Pan American Racquetball Championships in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Currently, Bob sees his practice as a blend of art and science. “When a new client comes in, I watch them carefully to assess their movement patterns and then I ‘listen’ with my hands to find out what’s going on in their body. I use what I know, and what I feel, to make the connections between multiple areas of pain or dysfunction and create a treatment plan. My most rewarding moment is when a client gets up from my table and says, ‘I didn’t know that I could feel this way again!’”
