Daniel is uniquely aware that each patient has different goals and desires with respect to their injury. He makes it his objective to understand how an injury is impacting a person’s life, and works with them to restore their participation in the roles and activities that are most meaningful to them. This requires an open mind and a flexible approach to create a truly custom recovery plan. He has had the good fortune to work with some excellent Physiotherapists and is motivated to serve as a leader in the profession. He involves himself in research and volunteer opportunities that further his learning and the profile of the physiotherapy profession. 

Daniel is mistakenly under the impression that he lives on the ‘east coast’. But we forgive him, because growing up in Fort St. John BC, Toronto was in fact considered VERY east! Before starting his Physiotherapy training Daniel was a forest firefighter. Ask him about the time he intentionally set a forest ablaze! Sport has been an important part of his life since childhood. More recently he has contributed his skills as a first responder and trainer to various athletic settings, but he remains a rabid weekend warrior in several sports!

What Daniel's patients say...

After suffering an injury to my shoulder last year, I was lucky to have found Cornerstone and physiotherapist Daniel Zackodnik. Daniel was able to expertly assess just how hard we should push my exercises to maximize my recovery and his exercise plans were easy to follow on the website. From my first visit, it was obvious that he was very knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. I now have a full range of motion and feel stronger than I did before my injury.

What Daniel's patients say...

I have had prolonged issues with my neck, shoulder and shoulder blades due to very long hours working at a computer for many years. Working with Daniel Zackodnick at Cornerstone Physiotherapy has been a great experience. After a couple of months, my range of motion has improved and pain subsided following hands-on work and individual programs with targeted stretches and strengthening exercises. I highly recommend this place.

What Daniel's patients say...

I have had only positive experiences with Cornerstone at Yonge and College over the past few years, seeing their physiotherapists for unrelated issues for my back and shoulders. Daniel Zackodnik took over from Giacomo Silvestri. The transition was smooth and both physiotherapists provided excellent care. If you are going to the College Street location, I highly recommend Daniel.  Thank you to both I feel a lot better and back to normal.
