Combining the medical health sciences and sport health sciences is how we bridge the gap between human movement, biomechanics, and the injury and aging processes. View our Video Library of preferred exercises and ask your Physiotherapist and Massage Therapist for your Exercise Prescription.
Our physiotherapists are duel trained in both Physiotherapy and in Kinesiology, in both the health and sport sciences just for this reason. We understand injury, disease, and we understand aging, and the physiological processes involved in these states. We study pathology, inflammation, and the disease process as well as the biomechanics, anatomy of human movement. In addition, our kinesiology backgrounds allow us to take our practice to another level as we understand physical activity and the biomechanics of athletic movement and function. Expertise in both the medical health science and the sport health sciences allows us to treat your injuries as well as develop your physical fitness, together to help you live a healthy lifestyle.
Over 25 years of thoughtful practice, healthfx has developed strategies that will not only correct your current imbalances and injured state but will develop your body in such a way that it will perform much better and without frustration of continuously breaking down. We are a small office where practitioners are integrated. Now of course we are not all wanting to become Olympians, but there is a very valuable process to be learned from those who develop Olympians. Being strategic, knowing your goals, assess and determine the gap, and develop a personal improvement plan that utilizes bench marks to assess progress. This is the way of life for someone who is interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
