Athletes - M.A.P. Physiotherapy - Ottawa

Athletes at all levels often try to push through injury. While the pain may resolve if ignored or treated locally quick-fix style, the underlying dysfunction remains. This means that your body will pay somewhere else down the line, often in an even bigger way. When athletes suffer a catastrophic injury such as a completely blown knee, there is almost always a history of smaller injuries that were ignored or treated piecemeal. Don’t let this happen to you. Treat the small stuff before it becomes big.

Injury Prevention

When it comes to athletic performance and injury prevention alignment is everything. Just like the tires on your car, if parts are out of alignment, undue stress is placed on some area and it will eventually blow, particularly when pushed in athletic pursuits. Let us tune up your body so you can prevent injury altogether.

The Importance of Base Training

I have made exercise a routine part of my life for many years now. I admit I have become somewhat addicted to the endorphin rush I get from a long sustained workout. But one thing I don’t do is exercise classes. For me part of the allure of exercising is having time...
