Recently Aart van Gorkum and UBC clinical placement Physiotherapist Carly Lockbaum held a Soccer Talk session for young boys and girls at Main Street Physiotherapy Clinic.

As part of Carly’s placement she did a presentation to a local soccer team (players & coaches) on strength exercises, injury prevention and enhancing their performance. By relaying this information to the coaches and parents, they are able to better educate their athletes and reduce the possibility of sports injuries.

Sports injury prevention and education is a practice that Main Street Physiotherapy provides for all kinds of sports. Here are some pictures from the talk, enjoy!

Jon has been very helpful in getting me back in shape after a car accident. He explains clearly what is happening with my back and how to strengthen it in a way that makes sense to me. The combination of IMS, manual therapy, and stretching/exercise has reduced my pain and given me a broader range of motion. Thank you, Jonathan!
