TeamPhysiotherapy to reduce time away from sport

At Capilano Rehab Centre we understand that a team needs to work together.  If you have one weak link in the chain it will break.  That is why we work hard to get you back to top performance and, get you back in the game.  Our Physical Therapists can work with your coaches and, existing team trainers to limit your time away from the field while encouraging long-term health and wellness.

 Capilano Rehab Centre’s Approach to Sport Injury Recovery

The Physical Therapists at Capilano Rehab are committed to customized client care and progressive and state of the art therapy equipment and approaches.  There are a variety of treatment options and our Physical Therapists will tailor your treatment plan to what will benefit you and your injury best.  One of the options for your tailored treatment plan is the use of our BIODEX® Multi Joint Rehab/Testing System.  Sometimes your injured rotator cuff or post-scoped knee is too tender to tolerate much traditional exercise.

That is where Capilano’s BIODEX® Multi Joint Rehab/Testing System comes in. It can help you get range of motion movements that your injuries would not let you to do on your own. And it can allow you to do isokinetic strengthening which allows you to only push as hard as you can safely tolerate. We have found great success with the BIODEX® as an effective tool to help post-operative patients, especially knee and shoulder surgeries, with their speedy recovery. The unique safety features of BIODEX® allow you to get a computerized rehab program that is customized to meet your current recovery status. Capilano believes in modern treatments and the BIODEX® system is an important part of the new generation therapy offered at Capilano.

I am Capilano Rehab Centre’s Community Care Coordinator. I have been with Capilano Rehab for 9 years primarily as a Physio Assistant, but also as a Receptionist. I have a Physical Education Degree from the University of Alberta, which I will eventually use when my two young children are grown up. In the mean time I am enjoying helping people in the Community through my role as Community Care Coordinator and bringing awareness to how a Physiotherapist can help you get back to the activities you love the most!
