We Know … Recovery

Chris and Justin, our head honchos and outdoor sports fans, have some tips for getting back on the horse after an injury.


Chris: Being benched bites - but your recovery is too important to rush the process. We know your results matter, so it’s time to put in the work!




Justin: We want to show you how. It can take a long time to bounce back from an injury, depending on factors like your age and level of fitness; we know, we’ve seen lots of injuries - ankle sprains, shin splints, bad backs, and knee injuries.


 Post-Injury Care


Justin: Maybe you have a sports-related injury, or maybe you had a slip or fall. Either way, the best time to start repairing the damage is right now. Think about your favourite athletes and the recoveries they’ve had to make.




Chris: Exactly. Our favourite figure skater, Kaetlyn Osmond, has had her share of injuries in her career.

She's back on the ice after healing a broken leg, and before that, she recovered from a torn hamstring in time to represent Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics. As you can see from November, she’s bounced back pretty well, don’t you think?

b2ap3_thumbnail_Justin.pngJustin: Wow. That’s really inspiring. I often hear from clients who are concerned that things won’t go back to the way they were after an injury. But even though most of us aren’t in the same physical condition as Kaetlyn, we can still usually get back to our old selves.


b2ap3_thumbnail_Chris.pngChris: Absolutely. And how you do it is simple; follow up. After your initial care you have to strengthen your body to get yourself back in (skating) form.




b2ap3_thumbnail_Justin.pngJustin: You may be asking yourself, what can I expect from physio?
Here are just a few benefits:




  • Exercise programs: Often after an injury, people will move less, but staying active with carefully planned exercises can help your body heal properly.

  • Hands-on approach: When you feel stiff and sore, a physiotherapist can help you get relief.

  • Supportive bracing: Equipment helps you get moving again as soon necessary.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Chris.pngChris: Remember that the stronger you are, the less likely you are to get injured - and the faster your recovery.




b2ap3_thumbnail_Justin.pngJustin: We know how to get results, whether you're trying to prevent injury or bouncing back from one; let us show you how to get back to your old self.
