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!

David Weightman is a terrific physiotherapist who has become a crucial part of keeping my body going. As a triathlete and person who is always on the move, Dave’s attention to my needs and his hands on philosophy has provided both recovery from injuries and ongoing maintenance to keep me training. He makes considerable efforts to know about my activities, goals and is eager to see me succeed. His years of experience and comprehensive knowledge of the body is evident as I often present different injuries to him. Whether chronic overuse injuries, or rehab from a major injury, I recommend Dave without hesitation! Tremendous man and a fantastic physio.
