Dr. Mathieu Bélanger
Founder and President
Dr. Mathieu Bélanger, MD, CCFP, CPSO Recognized Specialist (Chronic Pain), began his academic career by earning an undergraduate degree in kinesiology (i.e., the science of studying human movement, in particular physical activity and body mechanics) before enrolling in medicine at the University of Montréal.
Dr. Bélanger has always had a keen interest in physical activity. Having been injured himself several times, he is particularly interested in pain related to sports injuries and musculoskeletal disorders. This interest led him to the United States for various types of training on pain treatment given by leading experts. As a result, Dr. Bélanger became aware of just how widespread chronic pain has become and decided to dedicate his career to it. Since then, his objective has been to play an active role in the development and delivery of the most sophisticated and effective treatments for chronic pain.
