Athletic therapy is a specialized field of healthcare that focuses on the prevention, assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal (muscle, bone, and joints) injuries. But don’t let the name fool you, we don’t just deal in sports injuries. Athletic therapists treat a wide range of patients, from kids or adults suffering from concussion symptoms to people recovering from hip replacement surgery.


Athletic therapists are highly trained professionals who use a combination of hands-on techniques, exercise prescription, and therapeutic modalities to help you recover from injuries, improve performance, and prevent future issues. Athletic Therapists play a crucial role in the sports medicine team, working closely with athletes to optimize their physical health and return them to their sport or activity safely and effectively.


Book in with an Athletic Therapist if you are looking for:

  • Acute and chronic injury management

  • Integrated, hands-on and exercise based injury rehabilitation

  • Corrective exercise training programs

  • Return to sport training and reconditioning

  • Do I need a doctor's referral?
    No referral is necessary for Private or MSP funded patients.
  • Is Physiotherapy covered by insurance?
    Yes. Most extended health plans offer coverage for Physiotherapy services. Each company offers different amounts. Some plans have a maximum amount per year, and some plans are unlimited. Physiotherapy is also covered by MSP premium assistance. If you are eligible for premium assistance, MSP will cover $23 per session, for up to 10 sessions per year.
  • What should I wear to my Physiotherapy appointment?
    Please wear clothes that can move so we can access the area that needs to be assessed and treated. If you have a knee injury, please bring shorts. If you have a shoulder injury please wear a tank top or a shirt that can be moved to expose the area.
  • Do you accept ICBC/car accident claims?
    Yes, we do accept valid ICBC claims. On your first appointment you will need your healthcare card and a valid claim number. You are entitled to accident benefits whether you are at fault or not.
  • Do you accept WorkSafeBC claims?
    No, we do not accept WorkSafeBC claims.
  • What is Dry Needling?
    Dry Needling is a form of Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS). Using acupuncture-like needles, the therapist will place the needle into muscles that have tight bands or “trigger points.” The ultimate goal of Dry Needling is to cause a “twitch response” within the muscle. This can feel like an ache, tightness, or small contraction within the muscle. It is brief and the discomfort typically subsides immediately. The purpose of Dry Needling is to create a neuromuscular change which can help to decrease muscle tension, improve muscle strength and flexibility, and, overall, improve symptoms of pain and dysfunction.
