Physiotherapy to Enhance Athletic Performance
Published on October 5, 2021

Whether you are a high level competitive athlete or you participate in recreational sport, wear and tear on your body is a risk that comes with the territory. Minor injuries are certain to come up over the span of your sports “career,” but physiotherapy can help you maintain function no matter your level of performance. Individuals participating in all sports at any fitness level can benefit from physiotherapy to maintain joint mobility, prevent injury, and rehabilitate from minor and major setbacks. North Shore Sports Medicine offers a range of services to support, maintain, and enhance athletic performance with our highly trained physiotherapists in North Vancouver. Indeed, our physiotherapists are experts in injury prevention, acute intervention, rehabilitation, and performance enhancement.

At North Shore Sports Medicine we take a comprehensive approach to supporting competitive and recreational athletes and preventing injury. It all starts with assessing the athlete and their sport or physical activity in order to provide professional advice that allows athletes to maintain function without injury. Whether that means developing an exercise program that builds on an athlete’s strengths and addresses their weaknesses or providing evidence-based recommendations for equipment that meets an individual’s unique needs, our holistic approach involves consideration of all the factors that may pose a risk for injury.

Even when injury has occurred, our physiotherapists offer expertise in sports medicine to provide acute intervention to manage that injury in the immediate context as well as longer-term rehabilitation programs to get the athlete back to competition quickly and in good health. With a combination of advanced clinical reasoning and therapeutic tools, North Shore Sports Medicine’s physiotherapists in North Vancouver develop, implement, monitor, and adapt rehabilitation programs that are customized to an athlete’s condition, injury, and sport to help them return to optimal performance.
