Dr. Blake Wu
Dr. Wu has committed to the relentless pursuit of human movement. He grew up as the son of two Chinese immigrants, instilling in him a hard work ethic and tenacity. He used these values to graduate from the University of Toronto, where he solidified his foundations in biomechanics, anatomy and physiology. He continued his education at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2009. Dr. Wu always believed there was more in health care so he continued his education in dry needling, strength and conditioning, advanced rehabilitation and kinesiology. It has been his philosophy to continue to learn, grow and adapt within multiple health and fitness disciplines to create a strategy for preventing and managing athletic injuries.
