Biography alexis M. Leveille - Physiotherapist

DESCRIPTION

Alexis obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Physical Therapy at McGill University in 2016 where he completed 5 clinical placements in neurology, in-patient orthopaedics, out-patient orthopaedics, post-amputation and oncology as well as taking part in a research project on the potentiating effects of cardiovascular exercise on long-term memory. Post graduation, he worked in a private clinic treating mainly victims of car crashes, work accidents and sports injuries before joining the Altermed team in November 2017.

Favoring active listening, he orients his interventions according to the patient’s specific goals so as to bring patients where they want to go, be it living without pain, facilitating activities of daily living with chronic conditions or more fitness-oriented goals (strength & conditioning, weight loss).

Soccer player from a young age – he notably played in the Canadian Interuniversity Sports league for the McGill Redmen two years and participated in professional training camps in Mexico – Alexis is a strong advocate of the principle that physical exercise is often the best medicine. He considers physical therapy with collaboration in mind; the physiotherapist’s role as that of a guide to a patient involved in his own well-being. Hence, his treatments encourage the empowerment and self-efficacy of his patients.

To that end, he favors a therapeutic style rooted in the McKenzie approach to diagnostic and prioritizes patient education and active forms of treatment such as the Mulligan concept (active manual therapy) and gradual activity. Such an approach usually minimizes the number of treatment necessary by giving the keys of well-being in the hands of the patient. If appropriate, he completes his interventions with passive treatments like classical manual therapy and muscle releases. Finally, his systemic evaluation also allows for the use of interdisciplinary tools such as mindfulness for chronic pain cases.

Invested in his professional development, Alexis consistently enrolls in advanced professional training courses. Namel, he is awarded the prestigious McKenzie certification in 2018, the same year in which he begins his sports physical therapy certification. Hungry for knowledge, he further feeds his skeptic mind and constantly challenges established practices by regularly browsing the scientific literature and medical and physical therapy podcasts.
