Sports Physiotherapy Burnaby

Expert Physio Sports Injury and Athletic Performance

While we offer many different physiotherapy services for all age groups and gender here at Expert Physio, we are very active in offering personalized treatment plans related to sports injury and athletic performance. If you have been injured as a result of sports activity or want to improve your performance, then consider Expert Physio as a solution. The services we offer for athletes are broken down into two categories. Both are equally as important.

Sports Injury Treatments and Therapy

While you may be suffering from one or more of the very common injuries that come with sports, that doesn’t mean that you will receive a standard course of treatment here at Expert Physio.

As our patient, you will first complete a detailed intake that will focus on your past and present health history.

Following the intake, a full initial assessment will be carried out to determine your level of pain, your exact injury, and what effects it is having on you. This then allows us to put together a very comprehensive treatment plan. There are several priorities that this will address, beginning with the control of your pain, then focusing on what is needed to hasten complete recovery.

The treatment program can consist of a selection of different treatments that may include pain control and the reduction of swelling and bruising. It may require kinesio taping or other procedures that best fit your circumstances. Manual therapy and muscle reconditioning may be part of your treatment.

It will include a series of exercises that will be carried out both in the clinical setting as well as when you are at home. Your progress will be monitored closely, and adaptations to your treatment regime will be made as needed.

Our goals will be to ensure a complete recovery and will include preventative measures to deal with re-injury. You will be thoroughly educated as to the type and degree of your injury and what you can do to participate in your recovery.

Expert Physio and Sports Performance

The other segment of our sports services relates to our sports performance services. Our highly qualified physiotherapists are going to evaluate your physical strengths and weaknesses. These weaknesses will be addressed through the enhancement of flexibility and increased endurance as an example.

Weaknesses can leave the athlete vulnerable to injury; thus the need for our sports rehab services. Keep in mind that our friendly staff has the skills and expertise to assist athletes of all ages or gender. Seasoned athletes must have the opportunity to keep themselves in shape and the knowledge that can help them prevent injuries. Many injuries can be avoided this way.

Many young athletes are still in their growing stages and prevention of injuries is critically important to them.

Our priorities here at Expert Physio:


To reduce or eliminate your pain and discomfort.


To speed up the healing process and ensure proper healing.


To educate you as to how you can be proactive in your recovery.


To restore your quality of life to the fullest potential.
