With a background in Kinesiology, Dr. Passmore completed his MS (2003) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, his DC (2006) at New York Chiropractic College, and his PhD (2013) at McMaster University. His area of sub-specialization in Kinesiology for both his MS and PhD degrees is human perceptual learning and motor control. Dr. Passmore utilizes his theoretical and applied background in perceptual motor behaviour to explore performance-based outcome measures in an attempt to objectively determine population characteristics, movement outcomes and sustainability of interventions. Dr. Passmore practiced as a chiropractor in the Buffalo Veterans Affairs Medical Center (2007-09), and in outpatient private practice (2006-10, & 2015-present).
