Prior to osteopathy, Falcone completed training in Esalen® massage in Montreal.

Falcone is actively pursing a special interest in osteopathic approaches for the treatment of functional deficiencies and management of symptoms associated with musculoskeletal pain. These include but are not limited to: headaches, neck and shoulder, low back and hip pain, overuse, acute, chronic, work-, sports-, and age-related injuries.

In pursuit of greater understanding in management of musculoskeletal injuries, physical development, and growth through the age spectrum, Falcone is currently completing courses in respect to Exercise Prescription, Football Medicine, and headaches.

Falcone is an avid clinical researcher and is dedicated to exploring how osteopathy may further contribute to the community. In pursuit of this, he is a community member of the Vancouver Island Public Interest Research Group (VIPIRG).

Having followed osteopaths and physiotherapists practicing in Hong Kong, the States, England, Italy, and Switzerland in both clinical and hospital settings, has exposed Falcone to various manual therapeutic approaches and exercise therapy. This has motivated him in pursuit towards amalgamating the diversity of therapeutic approaches, to provide safe and effective treatments for all patients.

He comes from a background where all his family members are healthcare professionals. In his spare time, Falcone enjoys exploring the mysteries of the island through hiking, cycling, running, and paddling.
