our physio goals
Providing our clients with individualized one-on-one sports physio assessments and treatments to get you back in the game safer, ready to take on life's challenges and unexpected surprises.
Sports injury rehabilitation helps you return to your specific sport stronger and ready to face the unexpected. From acute injury management to return-to-sport stage, being empowered with knowledge of your injury, how your body heals, strategies to help your body adapt to be stronger and more resilient to the physical demands of expected and unexpected forces of your specific sport is vital to safe injury-free return.
Our therapists help you understand your body, it’s current tolerance, and how to improve its tolerance for injury prevention and return to sport. Our therapists return you to sport and life with our knowledge of how our body fails, healing timelines, specific exercises for progressive loading, using technology (ie. shockwave, electrical modalities, dry needling, etc.) and techniques (manual therapy) to facilitate your body’s healing processes, and managing your body’s response to increased loading, are all processes we use to safely return you to living life active.
Physiotherapy is about empowering you with a better understanding of your body. We are ‘human body whisperers’ - interpreting your body’s responses to loading and formulating a plan with an understanding of the potential risks and benefits. Empowering our clients with knowledge means a better understanding of how your body works. This understanding translates into immediate changes in action and decision making regarding your body.
More immediate the change, the quicker you can help your body take full advantage of its healing processes and return to pain-free living. Therefore, the effects of Physiotherapy can be within the first week of treatment. Full return to function or sport can vary, generally 2 weeks to 6 months, depending on the severity of the injury. Keep active and play!

I've seen Siobhan (physiotherapist) for 6 months, she's excellent! The different injuries I've had in my knee and hip have improved notoriously with the treatment. She's very clear in explaining what is happening with your body (for me education is important so you can manage your injuries properly), giving you a variety of exercises to do at home and answering all your possible questions. I feel very well-cared for and I'm super grateful for such a positive impact on my health. I'd recommend her 100%!
Used to see Michael for a running injury - he was fantastic and worked with me diligently to get to the root cause of the problem opposed to quick fixes I've experienced at other physio clinics. Will be visiting the VanSports physiotherapist team again this week for a separate concern. Communication is always fantastic with incredibly quick response times for all inquiries. All team members are friendly, seem down to earth, genuinely interested in helping you and create a relaxed yet professional environment. Side note, the location is great being downtown Vancouver.
Mariana was so knowledgeable and caring. I felt so taken care of from start to finish as she was thoughtful in her physiotherapy treatment recommendations. Lee at reception was also super friendly and made my experience enjoyable!
Mariana is an excellent and professional physiotherapist. The physio clinic is very well located in Vancouver , modern and equipped. Best experience I could have asked for.
Having spasm for 2 weeks and seeing a couple of physiotherapists and massage therapists, Van Sports was the last and best solution! Mariana did magic! Definitely recommend her and Van sports and will come back again!
I’m relatively new to Van Sports and physiotherapy but I’m so glad I found Yvonne. The level of care has been fantastic and the clinic is very welcoming. I’d have no hesitation in recommending this amazing Vancouver physio clinic to anyone in need of first class help. Yvonne has given me answers to my knee problems I didn’t know I needed - she’s awesome!
