Our Team

Erl Pettman

Physiotherapist/Owner

Erl qualified as a physiotherapist at Nottingham, England in 1972. Along with his wife, Maggie (also a physiotherapist and co-owner of OASIS Mission Physiotherapy), they immigrated to Canada in 1974. Eventually arriving in British Columbia in 1978 they set up their first private practice, McCallum Physiotherapy Clinic, which they still operate in Abbotsford today. 13 years later they started OASIS (Orthopaedic And Sports Injury Services) Physiotherapy in Mission.

In a career spanning over 40 years Erl has had many roles. As a clinician he has specialized in Orthopaedic Manual/Manipulative Physiotherapy (OMPT), with a sub-specialty in the rehabilitation of chronic work and MVA related injuries.

Educationally Erl has been a National and International teacher of OMPT for 40 years. The emphasis of his teaching, as with his clinical practice, has always been holistic; ‘Treat the person, not just a part of the person’. As early as 1979 using this philosophy Erl pioneered and began teaching the Level III Integrated Quadrant Courses within Canada and later the USA. This has obviously influenced all his staff who Erl encourages to do regular in-services. Erl and all of his staff are forever striving to achieve excellence in clinical practice.

Erl is a retired Chief Examiner for the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) but still retains that position within the North American Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) which he founded in 1987. He has been officially recognized for his commitment to teaching by both the CPA (The ‘Golden Hands Award’) and the American Academy of OMPT (the ‘Teach I Must' Award).

He continues to shape physiotherapy post professional education as an adjunct professor of the Doctor of Science in Physical Therapy (DScPT) program at Andrews University, Michigan. Erl has written chapters in 3 PT textbooks and has also written his own book, ‘Manipulative Thrust Techniques’. When not treating patients or teaching students Erl loves sharing the rest of his life with wife Maggie, children Nathan, Tanya and Jonathan and his beautiful grandchildren Aylah, Quinn, Summer and Chloe.

Erl retired from treating clients in 2018 but continues to teach and mentor physiotherapists from all over North America.
