All of our physiotherapists have extensive experience working with amateur and elite level athletes; they understand the important roles sports and physical activities play in many of our client's lives. Each of our physiotherapists are personally involved in sports through participation, coaching and/or training.
After an injury occurs during or outside of sports, our physiotherapists will not only help you recover from your injury but also ensure that your rehabilitation gets you back to the level of sport that you were competing at. Treatment will include rehabilitative exercises as well as preventative exercises. Sport specific drills will be included along with core stabilization and strengthening exercises.
Assessing and screening athletes' abilities prior to the upcoming season is also offered. Research has clearly proven that this is a great way to prevent injuries and to enhance performance. Your physiotherapist will look for any muscle imbalances and/or weaknesses that may affect your ability to perform, and set up a sport specific exercise routine. Our physiotherapists work closely with trainers and coaches to ensure that everyone involved is on the right track in ensuring your safe and healthy return to sports and physical activities.
On a cold and dark November morning while riding to work my bike slid out from under me resulting in an injury to my rotator cuff. I started visiting Peter Francis two weeks later as I still could not lift my arm above my waist. He assessed my initial injuries while reviewing my overall health. Peter demonstrated that he has an extensive knowledge about the physiology of the body. After each session, I found my range of motion increased dramatically. He was able to prescribe and clearly demonstrate effective stretches and exercises I could do at home. I found Peter to be professional, knowledgeable and passionate about his job. Little does he know his new nickname is “Mr. Magic!”
