Francisco Larios, PT, BScKin, CMAG

Francisco graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a Masters of Physical Therapy, both from the University of Western Ontario. While at Western, he had the opportunity to work as a trainer with the Western Mustangs Football team as well as athletes competing in wrestling and track & field. 

Since graduating, he has become certified in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, Kinesio-Taping and myofascial release. He combines acupuncture, soft tissue release techniques, joint mobilizations and rehabilitation exercises to optimize his patients' health and recovery from injury. He is passionate about promoting a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and exercise and as such these are a major focus in his practice. 

Francisco has worked in Kincardine for over 5 years in the private clinic setting. 

"I first became interested in rehabilitation when I was a teenager and had recurring knee and ankle injuries from my participation in sport. I learned at a young age that the body could recovery from injury and heal itself by balancing rest with the right type of exercises. This was an incredible discovery for me, as up to that point I had thought the only answer to injury and illness was with medicine.

Ever since then I’ve been very interested in the way the body works and heals which lead to me to take Kinesiology and eventually Physiotherapy when I went to university. While at university I had the pleasure to work with athletes as a student therapist, and as much as I enjoyed the fieldwork, I discovered the clinic is where I could really make a difference and where I loved to work. Since graduating I’ve become certified in contemporary medical acupuncture and continue to take courses in manual therapy as my interest in understanding how body function can be optomized has never wavered."
