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!

I regrettably developed breast cancer.  Kate has advised me and taught me appropriate exercises to help me recover and maintain optimal function in my arm. Her interest in women’s health and the needs of women dealing with cancer has helped me a lot. Kate has the ability to recognize where I am at physically and to do both hands on treatment and to teach me a reasonable home program of exercises.  I would recommend her to anyone needing help with their physical recovery.
