About Sports Rehab
Sports Rehab is a safe therapeutic approach focused on helping individuals manage symptoms, return to normal function (or pre-injury state), and enhance sport/activity performance.
No matter if you are a professional athlete, a competitive player, or a recreational athlete, you all have the same goal: to achieve a full return to performance as soon as possible, with a minimal risk of re-injury.
Sports rehab consists of targeted exercises to:
- return to pre-injury function
- reduce mobility restrictions
- prevent re-injury or worsening of the condition
- optimize performance
- education on gait, posture, form of movement

Shockwave Therapy for chronic recurrent problems

Your First Appointment
In your first appointment, your Physiotherapist will do a comprehensive assessment, provide you with a diagnosis and share your treatment plan, which will include pain-management techniques, education, guidance and prevention. As able, your treatment will also include a gradual plan to return to hobbies, physical activities or sport.
Your Physiotherapist will perform an assessment to verify progress and check how the treatment and exercise plan is working for you. The treatment in each session will be determined by your Physiotherapist based on your treatment plan and goals. Techniques and modalities in your treatment plan will be chosen accordingly to clinical findings and condition progress. Your Physiotherapist may also suggest including a Kinesiologist in your treatment team, if more in-depth strength and conditioning is needed.
At the end of the session, you will be reminded to book your follow-up appointments, when needed. You may do that with your clinician, call one of our locations, or book online.
