Sport and performance clinical care

The HPC includes a specialty clinic for sport and performance clinical care for special populations and athletes.

This includes addressing:

  • Special populations with challenging health and functional limitations such as chronic pain, physical disabilities, movement disorders, and post-surgical conditions such as joint replacements
  • Addressing an athlete’s interests in prevention, intervention and rehabilitation

Referral resource

Our advanced rehabilitation services also serve as a resource via referral for local practitioners who may not have the resources to offer this level of rehabilitation to their patients.
