I was a client from Aug 2017 – Jan 2018 for a ruptured Achilles. My Practitioner helped expedite my recovery to get back into competitive powerlifting and sports in general.

I was able to fully play volleyball again in under 5 months, despite also fracturing a toe along the way. I also competed in a provincial powerlifting meet this past weekend, and managed to place first in my weight class by setting new personal records.

I honestly don’t think I would get back into sports at this level if I had gone elsewhere for physio. I truly appreciate the dedication and care my Practitioner puts into her work, and I wanted to share the fruits of our labour.

When choosing a backpack for your child ensure that it appropriately sized and not too large. Once books and other items are placed in the bag, make sure it is no heavier than 10% of the child's body weight.
