Sports Rehabilitation

Penticton sports rehabilitation

Penticton is a sports town, and we’re host to a number of wonderful events every year. Whether its cycling on the South Side Road, jogging up the KVR overlooking Okanagan Lake, or skiing on a powder day up at Apex Mountain Resort, Penticton is full of year round outdoor sporting activities.

With sport, however, comes sports injuries. These can vary from a mildly sprained ankle, to full-on muscular tears or broken bones. And if there’s one thing we know about athletes in Penticton, they do not like to be sidelined for long. Our team of pros are trained to assess, treat and rehabilitate sports injuries so you can get back to doing the things you love. A key component of returning to full fitness and activity is finding out what the key underlying cause is, because if there is weakness or tightness around the area you’re struggling with, the problem can come back time and time again.

Injuries

Whether you see one of our physiotherapists, athletic therapists, registered massage therapists or kinesiologists, we can get you back in the game. We combine a number of hands on therapies like IMS/ dry needling, manual therapy and massage/ muscular release techniques to loosen tight and stiff joints and muscles, and then teach you the exercises you need to do to stay injury free.

Common sporting injuries we see in the clinic include:

  • Tennis/ golfers elbow
  • Achilles tendon tendinopathy
  • Runners knee
  • Rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • Hamstring strains
  • Muscular tears
  • Ankle sprains/ ligament injuries
  • Knee ligament injuries
  • Contusions
  • Concussions
  • Low back pain
  • Whiplash
  • Joint dislocations
  • Kneecap (patella) injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear friends,

As you will be aware, we are in the middle of a public health emergency due to the ongoing coronavirus/ COVID-19 pandemic. Following strong recommendations from both the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia and the Canadian Physiotherapy Association in the last 24 hours, we have made the difficult decision to close our clinic until March 31st 2020. We believe that this is the ethically and socially responsible action to help ‘flatten the curve’ of the virus. We are trying to do our part to help take the pressure off the already overloaded Penticton Regional Hospital by preventing further spread.

Please note, we have NOT had any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our clinic. You can still book appointments with us for March 31st & onward, either on the phone at 250-493-1152 or on our online booking portal, located at the top of each of our webpages.

We understand that this may be an inconvenience, but we hope you can understand our decision in this unprecedented time. We will be working behind the scenes while our clinic is closed to make sure that all of your ICBC, WorkSafe BC and private claims are all being processed, and liaising with ICBC and WorkSafe as needed to extend treatment blocks which may end during our down time.

We are currently in the process of calling our patients to reschedule appointments, so don’t worry if you haven’t heard from us yet – we haven’t forgotten about you!

Again, we thank you for your understanding in this challenging time. We will keep you updated on the status of our clinic as the days and weeks unfold, and urge everyone to practice social distancing and keep updated on the current health advice from the Canadian government and health departments.

Looking forwards to seeing you all again on March 31st.

Best regards,

Chris Stokes,
Clinic Director and Registered Physiotherapist – March 17th, 2020
