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.
“I have been treated by Kate Kennedy for about 15 years. I followed her to Main Street Physio because she is simply the most talented physiotherapist I have had the pleasure of being treated by. She has seen me through a car accident and my recovery, and is very knowledgeable about persistent pain treatment and ongoing issues that arise in a mid-sixties arthritic woman’s body. Her teaching experience is a great asset in the treatment room as she has up to date information and a vast knowledge base. In addition to physical treatment she has taught me a great deal about my body and about healing, and this has been a source of independence for me. Her interpersonal skills are amazing which makes the entire experience of healing pain and living with pain much more tolerable. I feel as though I have a partner in my pursuit of wellness.”
