At the New West Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Centre, we are committed to working with athletes. Our therapists have worked with many National Teams ranging from Soccer to Gymnastics to Field Hockey. We also work closely with the BC Lions, the Vancouver Whitecaps, and Olympic athletes from a wide variety of sports. However, its not just professional or international level athletes who get our attention. We see far more weekend warriors and little leaguers than World Champions, and their successful rehabilitation can be just as rewarding and just as challenging. Our treatment programmes are quickly progressed to sport specific exercises and training techniques.
Our registered physiotherapists are active with various sport and community groups. Although our treatment choices will depend on an individual’s needs, we all believe strongly in exercise based treatment programs. In addition to exercise prescription, we may choose from a wide repertoire of manual therapy techniques, electrical modalities, Intramuscular stimulation (IMS), ultrasound therapy, cryotherapy, and consultation.
We strive to help our clients reach their maximum physical potential following an injury or illness. We believe our job is done only when we have provided the education required to prevent problems in the future.
New West Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre was founded in 1991. At the time it was one of only a couple of centres in British Columbia offering Physiotherapy, Primary Care Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Surgery together under one roof. The tradition continues to this day, and while some of the faces have changed, we continue to offer excellence in all three disciplines. At New West Sports Medicine we are also active in providing education to medical and physiotherapy students from the University of British Columbia
