Giacomo is the sort of person that everyone has a connection with. He is easy going and disarmingly smart without being overbearing. Charmingly, this all comes as news to him. He is a leader in the physiotherapy community who teaches at the university level and has started an organization to help allied health professionals become more educated on financial planning. His approach to treatment is focused and practical. He applies the most powerful tools in the physiotherapists arsenal with precision. He is personally committed to not only relieving pain and dysfunction but to leaving the patients better off than they were before their injury occurred.

Giacomo was born in Burlington Ontario but lived in Italy from the age of 3 to 9. He has four siblings and a triathlon bike that he loves like a sibling. Giacomo spends a lot of time volunteering to cover various sporting events at the Pan Am, National and International levels. You will notice when you meet him that he is always wearing a sweater….once you have known him a while you will realize that he has the ‘dad jokes’ to go with it!

What Giacomo’s patients say…

I was able to get an appointment quickly, and cannot recommend Giacomo enough! He is knowledgeable and efficient, and an absolute delight to work with. As I am prone to running injuries, this will be certainly a resource I will return should the need arise. Thank you for your help!

What Giacomo’s patients say…

I recently completed my physio/rehabilitation with Giacomo at Cornerstone. Fantastic. After getting the same generic treatment at a few places from a few types of professionals, I was about to give up but I took another shot and luckily I was assigned to Giacomo who has completely restored my faith in the process!

What Giacomo’s patients say…

The Cornerstone Team, especially Giacomo, are amazing. Your concerns are their concerns. Giacomo listened to all my issues to make a comprehensive decision and prioritized my issues to ensure that we were addressing them in the correct order. I will go back whenever I have something act up in the future.
