Richard Bouzaglou

Richard Bouzaglou

Physiotherapist / Clinic Co-Founder

The AMS Medical & Rehabilitation Centre was founded in 2008 by a group of health professionals including physiotherapist, Richard Bouzaglou.

Richard Bouzaglou has developed a wide range of resourceful approaches to treatment through his studies in Sports Medicine at Montreal’s Concordia University and Physiotherapy at McGill University. Richard is well known in Montreal as the guiding force in creating an innovative, interdisciplinary rehabilitation department at one of Quebec’s largest private rehabilitation centers. He has brought the same energy, innovation and vision to the AMS Medical & Rehabilitation Centre.

In Sports Medicine, Richard has worked with high caliber athletes during his tenure as head physiotherapist of the ice hockey, football & soccer teams at CEGEP Saint Laurent.

To further compliment his extensive athletic experience, Richard turned to McGill University’s prestigious physiotherapy department where he graduated in 1999.

A strong believer in continuing education, Richard has taken, and is currently taking, advanced educational programs in Osteopathy, Manual Therapy, Spinal Evaluation & Treatment, as well as specialized postural correction seminars including Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (McKenzie Method) and the Mulligan Concept.

Richard has also served as the Director of the Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy and Osteopathy departments at one of North America’s largest private rehabilitation centers.

Also a strong believer in teaching as a way of staying current with the most advanced techniques, Richard has been the clinical residency director in charge of offering residencies to the physiotherapy students from the University of Montreal, McGill University and CEGEP Marie-Victorin where he has mentored many future therapists.

During Martin’s Master’s degree in Physiotherapy, he has had the opportunity to work in different clinical settings (e.g. acute care, home-care, out-patient neuro rehabilitation and out-patient orthopaedics). As of November 2019, Martin is a licensed member with the Ordre Professionnel de la Physiothérapie du Québec (OPPQ).  Martin has been certified as well by the OPPQ to practice vertebral and joint manipulation.

Martin’s interest for the field of Physiotherapy stems from being able to help patients regain functional mobility that will allow them to return to activities that are meaningful to them. In order to provide quality care, he will engage in continued education and self-learning. Given the advancement in treatment methods and technology in the field of Physiotherapy, Martin strongly believes that continuous learning is essential in improving one’s ability to assess and treat patients. Likewise, Martin is aiming to obtain his certification for the McKenzie Concept and Mulligan Concept, which will allow him to perfect his assessment and treatment protocols of orthopedic injuries.

Adriana Kundrat Brasil

Adriana Kundrat Brasil

Physiotherapist

After graduating in physiotherapy from Paulista University in 2002 in Brazil, I followed a year of specialization in orthopedics in the most famous hospital of Latin America: The Clinic Hospital of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo. I also did a specialization in postural correction (Holistic Gymnastics methodology).
Following this, I worked for 8 years in the private sector, where my main objective was to prevent patients from undergoing orthopedic surgeries, including spinal surgeries by treating them with the Holistic Gymnastics Method. The results obtained by this method were excellent since in 80% of cases, surgery was avoided.
In 2016, thanks to my success in the physiotherapy qualification program at the Université de Montréal, I had the opportunity to do internships in major Montreal institutions such as the Gingras-Lindsay Institute in Montreal and the Hospital Hotel Dieu.
Since 2016, I work as a physiotherapist in Montreal and my goal is to always promote the well-being and autonomy of the patient. To achieve this, I continue to pursue continuing education such as the McKenzie Method and the Mulligan Concept.
