Train Smarter… Prevent Injuries
There are multiple factors that play a role in an athlete’s risk for sport-related injury; which can include the type of sport being played, playing more than one sport in a season, poor conditioning or ineffective off-season training. While most athletes realize they need to get in shape to prepare for the upcoming season, many do not understand how their ability to move is influencing their risk for injury. As athletes get bigger, faster and stronger, the ability to move their body and coordinate limbs and trunk is critical to staying in the game. Being able to absorb shock through your limbs and trunk while generating power is key to injury prevention and performing better at your sport. Our team are experts in teaching movements patterns that not only reduce injury risk, but enhance performance.

Sport-Related Concussion Care
Recovery after a concussion requires an individual approach. Not all concussions are the same, nor do they respond the same to management strategies. Our sports medicine and neuro rehabilitation teams are specialists in concussion management; offering patients and families timely information and care, as early treatment not only improves recovery but also reduces the stress, worry and confusion that is often associated.
