We are trusted by leading sports organizations and have the privilege of working with a number of different sports teams and athletes.  At Cappino Physiotherapy & Wellness Center, we understand the challenges you face both mentally and physically, and are dedicated to providing the essential support you need.

Registered Massage Therapists can also be very beneficial to an athlete.  Receiving a regular massage helps to prevent injury and enhance athletic  performance. It  releases tension, remove toxins and diminish lactic acid build up, which causes athletes to suffer from muscle soreness that can limit performance.  Our experienced registered massage therapists provide relaxation, Deep Tissue  or Sports Massages to ensure that muscles are fully relaxed and the athlete is in the best possible physical and mental state to compete.

An Osteopath is a very useful practitioner when dealing with sports related injuries.  They often take a more holistic approach by treating the body as a whole rather than the injury itself.  As a result, the osteopath often works hand in hand with the physiotherapist to heal injuries.  An osteopath can teach athletes how to improve posture and balance, which will not only improve their performance but also reduce the risk of further injury.

To perform better, you need to fuel better.  Any athlete will tell you that nutrition is one of the most important components of a training regime.  The proper diet will encourage muscle development, reduce unnecessary fats and maintain high levels of energy.  While working with a Registered Dietitian, players can gain access to a customized nutritional plan that will achieve all desired goals.

There are a number of reasons why diet plays such an important role:

  • Proper nutrition improves overall health.
  • A healthy diet reduces recovery time.
  • Certain foods will improve performance.
  • Proper eating habits will maintain a desired weight.

We offer Optimal Performance Nutrition Packages, designed to help you improve your athletic performance and reach your goals by working with your training and energy needs.  You are guaranteed to get the optimum amount of nutrients for your sports or activity, while having meal plans fitted to your lifestyle.

Often what differentiates a successful result from a less desired one is the athlete’s mental awareness.
