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!

As a National Team Athlete I had a serious injury and was sidelined for over a year. After seeing the Sports Med doctors at UBC they recommended I see Aart. I spent over a year working with Aart and his team. I was very thankful for meeting the team at Main Street Physio as they helped me recover back to 100% and return to playing at the international level. I continue to see Aart who helps me stay healthy and keeps me in the game! I recommend this clinic and the team of professionals who help make it a great place, to anyone who is looking for any physiotherapy needs!
