Dr. Matthew Dean – D.C., BSc(Hons), D.Ap, ART®
- Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Provider
- Active Release Techniques (ART®) Provider
- Performance Taping certification
Dr. Matthew Dean graduated Summa Cum Laude and with clinic honours from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College where he was the recipient of the Gilbert H. Young Memorial Award, for having the highest clinical average among all graduating Chiropractors. He has also obtained his Honours Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario with specialization in athletic injuries, and his certificate in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture from McMaster University.
In practice, Dr. Dean combines several advanced therapy techniques including joint manipulation, ART, contemporary acupuncture, fascial abrasion technique, kinesiology taping, and personalized rehabilitation exercises into an individualized treatment plan.
This integrated approach has been shown to be effective in treating all types of injuries in athletic and non-athletic populations. The cornerstone of the treatment’s effectiveness is in the ability to correct any underlying musculoskeletal and biomechanical dysfunction which could be creating symptoms, and thus reducing pain and preventing it from coming back.
Dr. Dean currently consults with many NHL players for in-season and off-season injury management and functional performance therapy. He has also consulted with NFL, CFL, Olympic, NCAA, and national level rugby and track athletes.
“The treatment I receive from Dr. Matt Dean at the S.C.A.P. Centre is world class. The grind and abuse that comes from travelling and playing international rugby takes a heavy toll on my body mentally and physically. With only a short time off between
competitions the need to get back and fit is a must.
Matt’s extensive experiences working with high performance athletes lead me to the S.C.A.P. Centre. His cutting edge treatment techniques alongside his flexible scheduling helps me get back on the field and back to perform at an elite level in time for my next international test match.
Thanks Matt for all the work you’re a legend!”
Ray Barkwill, Hooker for the Canadian National Senior Men’s Rugby Team
