Operating within the OUA Varsity setting, Robert was afforded the opportunity to work alongside elite university athletes. While working with multiple university level sports teams (including football, hockey, and soccer) Robert was exposed to a wide variety of therapeutic techniques; these experiences have helped to expand his repertoire of treatment options.
