Simo received his Masters of Physical Therapy Degree from D'Youville College in Buffalo, New York in 2008 after completing his Honours Bachelor of Science from the University of Western Ontario in 2004. After graduation, Simo began practicing at a specialized outpatient orthopaedic practice in Colorado Springs, Colorado, receiving numerous hours of clinical mentorship with FCAMPT and FAAOMPT level therapists. In addition to being in full time clinical practice, Simo was also acting clinical director for his Colorado Springs clinic.
In 2012, Simo relocated back to Toronto and joined the multidisciplinary care team at Infinity Health Centre. Simo has been instrumental in developing and maintaining core relationships with many large corporations within downtown Toronto while providing best practice principles to their employees. By specializing in hands on manual therapy (joint mobilization/manipulation, trigger point dry needling/IMS, myofascial release techniques, neuro-reducation and mobilizations) and coupling those techniques with exercise prescription and patient education, Simo ensures that all of his patients maximize their level of recovery and function.
Moreover, Simo is very proud to be one of the few practitioners within downtown Toronto to offer IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation) or Trigger Point Dry Needling. Reseach has found this specialized technique, especially when combined with other soft tissue therapies, to be extremely effective in restoring optimal joint and mucsle tension/range of motion.
