Richard Bouzaglou

Richard Bouzaglou

Physiotherapist / Co-founder of the clinic

Founded in 2008, the AMS Medical and Rehabilitation Centre is the result of the initiative of several health professionals   , including Richard Bouzaglou. Throughout his studies in sports medicine (at Concordia University) and physiotherapy (at McGill University), Richard has developed a wide range of therapeutic approaches in Montréal. He is recognized as the main designer of an innovative and interdisciplinary rehabilitation department in one of the largest private centres in Québec.

It is this energy and sense of innovation that he has brought to the AMS Clinic. In sports medicine, Richard has had the opportunity to work with high-calibre athletes during his years as head therapist in the fields of hockey, soccer, and soccer teams at CÉGEP Saint-Laurent. Wishing to further his training in the field, he then turned to the prestigious Department of Physiotherapy at McGill University, from which he graduated in 1999. A fervent supporter of continuing education, Richard has taken (and continues to take) advanced courses in osteopathy, manual therapy, spine examination and treatment, as well as several specialized spine treatment seminars, such as the McKenzie Method and the Mulligan Concept. A firm believer that knowledge rhymes with learning, Richard has also served as clinical residency director for physiotherapy students at Université de Montréal, McGill University, and CÉGEP Marie-Victorin.

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.
