My Journey Through Sports Medicine

Hey, my name is David Griffiths, a Dad of four kids, an entrepreneur, and I have a doctorate degree in physiotherapy.

In my over 10 years in the sports medicine industry, I’ve seen all types of athletes with all different ranges of injuries from necks, to ankles and everything in between.

But early on in my career, I noticed something… My patients kept coming back to me with the same injuries, it seemed the second I stopped treating them they were right back through the door, injured again. This wasn’t right, something had to change.

I realized that physiotherapy goes beyond fixing the issue and relieving pain, that is only half the battle. Once the issue is resolved you need to teach the athlete how to move their body in ways that aren’t going to injure them again while still maintaining the performance they were used to.

Now my treatments go beyond just solving a problem. At Griffiths Performance Physiotherapy we teach you how to move in ways that don’t damage your body.

Now, all of my athletes come to me telling me how they remembered what I taught them through their recovery and they avoided a repeat injury while still playing at their highest level.

That’s when I knew I was onto something.

Come to Griffiths Performance Physiotherapy and experience the difference, get that confidence back in your body, get that control back. It’s a whole new world once you do!

Who We Are

David Griffiths

Outside of the clinic, I am a HUGE Toronto Blue Jays fan! I also really enjoy baseball overall, as well as basketball and lacrosse.

When it comes time to kick back and relax, you can find Amanda and me in Cuba. We got married there, and has been our favourite spot for years.  

Amanda Griffiths

I have a small business diploma from Niagara college, and several years of business management experience.    

When I am not at the clinic, I enjoy simply being active and being outside with David. We have four kids, aged 18, 14, 12, and 1. They make sure we stay busy, and they are also a huge motivation for us. They are why we work so hard!

Besides Cuba, we also enjoyed travelling to California, and one of my passions is amateur photography. I help out with a lot of local events across the Niagara Region.

Mariette McAllister

I graduated in 2017 with Honours from the Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist Assistant program at Niagara College.

I’ve always wanted a career helping others and with a background in fitness, working as a physiotherapist assistant seemed natural.

I spent part of summer 2019 in Toronto training in the Stott Pilates method for mat work as well as the special populations course to bring the complementary nature of Pilates into physio treatment.

I will be continuing my Pilates training this winter to bring reformer training to my repertoire.

In my spare time you can find me listening to music, hiking, traveling, gardening and watching scary movies

As an Athletic Therapist, my expertise is in injury assessment and rehabilitation. Athletic therapists adhere to the Sports Medicine Model of care. An Athletic Therapist's goal is to help clients return to their usual activities, whether that means playing competitive sports or walking to the mailbox and back.

I am very athletic himself. I played soccer and I am an avid boxer. I love watching MMA or really any combat sports! I am extremely enthusiastic and love life!
