My massage with Katie was excellent! I left feeling relaxed with no tension in my muscles or joints. The therapist listened to everything I needed done and applied just the right amount of pressure when needed. I highly recommend this place for a good massage.

What to Expect During Your Appointment?

When you attend your sports physiotherapy appointment, the physiotherapist will start with a consultation where you will discuss the sports you play, any injuries you’ve had and your overall medical history.

Sports Injury Physiotherapy Clinic

The sports therapist will then develop a treatment plan with goals agreed upon with the patient to aid in the restoration of pre-injury function while preventing further injury. The personalized program will involve not just manual therapy but also strength and conditioning exercises to help the patient return to play.

Working with Recreational and Competitive Athletes

A weekend warrior is someone who works out part-time or on weekends. Most weekend warriors do not have the time to or think they don’t have the time to do a warm-up and cool down, which can cause injury.

Weekend warriors’ primary job is not being a professional athlete, and most are usually inactive during the week and by the weekend are ready to hit the pavement or preferred activity, with little to no preparation for the great intensity ahead. Sports Physiotherapists will not only educate patients, but they will also treat the ailments using but not limited to manual therapy, ultrasound, and or heat/cold.
