Meet the speakers:
Haseel Bhatt MSc.PT, MSc., BSc.Kin
(Balance Physiotherapy)

Presentation: “Parkinson’s disease: Shifting the Clinical Paradigm.”

Upon completing his BSc. Kinesiology degree at the University of Waterlo​o, Haseel decided to pursue his Master of Science degree at the Movement Disorders Research and Rehabilitation Centre (MDRC) in Waterloo, Ontario. It was here that he began to appreciate the role exercise could play in the lives of individuals living with Parkinson’s disease. During this time, Haseel created a 12-week PD-specific treadmill training program and was subsequently published in several scientific articles. In addition, Haseel supported the PD Safex program- a multi-site exercise therapy program involving over 400 patients designed specifically for people living with Parkinson’s disease. His special interest in gait and mobility has afforded Haseel the opportunity to speak at several national and international conferences and have his work published in peer-reviewed journals including: Rehabilitation and Parkinson’s Disease and Parkinsonism and Related Disorders.

After working as a Research Analyst for several years at the Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery, Haseel went on to obtain his Masters of Physiotherapy in the UK. Wanting to bridge the gap between research and hands-on therapy, he completed an internship at the National Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence at Derby Teaching Hospital and the University of Nottingham.

Upon his return to Canada, Haseel decided to create Parkinson’s Physiotherapy in hopes to better service the PD community through research-driven rehabilitation. Haseel is involved in several advocacy initiatives and serves as an Ontario Parkinson’s Ambassador. You can find Haseel working out of Balance Physiotherapy – a physiotherapy clinic specializing in treating various neurological populations.
