I Even Scored In My First Game
I started working with Julian from the age of 13. I had been experiencing lots of knee pain when I trained and played games and previous attempts at rehab were unsuccessful. My goal was to get into the OYSL team, get a university soccer scholarship and maybe even play for Canada. After the initial assessment and road-map laid out by Julian and Asa, it took 2-3 years of progressive, consistent strengthening to play without knee and groin pain. I did not stop there. I continued to work with the PHYSELITE team for performance strengthening and injury prevention. In 2018, I achieved my goal of gaining a soccer scholarship to play at a Canadian university. I even scored in my first game.

I Decided To Start Rehab
While Julian and the PHYSELITE team was working with my son I decided to start rehab for my long-standing shoulder pain. I wanted to play a Master’s volleyball tournament. Julian’s assessment was thorough. He didn’t not just look at my shoulder. He assessed all my issues to then develop a complete program for my knees and Achilles tendons. After 9 months work I was able to get through my volleyball tournament and my shoulder pain had decreased so much I could sleep and hit without pain. I have continued to work with his team to achieve my health goals of resolving my rotator cuff pain and play a bit of volleyball.

An Avid Weight-Lifter And Kickboxer
I am an avid weight-lifter and kickboxer. I had been experiencing a gradual onset of pelvic symptoms in the last six months, including frequent urination and discomfort during intercourse. I was referred to a urologist, who found that my symptoms were suspicious for pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. The urologist referred me to the local Pelvic Health Physiotherapist for assessment and treatment. I participated in a virtual physiotherapy assessment with Andrea, and was helped to understand how my symptoms were related to my squat-lifting technique and voiding habits. I was given a home exercise program to help relieve my symptoms, with a plan to begin retraining my squat-lifting technique at the next visit. My treatment plan included working with both the Kinesiologist and strength coaches to reach my weight-lifting goals.

I Feel Much More In Control
In my late 70’s I had a hip replacement because of arthritis. I was also experiencing low back pain. After the surgery I became more unsteady on feet as I had lost some of my pre-surgery strength and balance. My son referred me to Julian for help. Since then, I have worked with the PHYSELITE team, Physio and Physio assistant, and I am now far steadier on my feet and far less dependent on my cane. I feel much more in control of my back pain, far less fearful of falling and I’m back to traveling overseas with my son and his wife.

I Understand My Body Far Better
I was referred to Julian and Asa by my old soccer coach as I had been carrying a lingering Achilles tendon and knee tendon pain since my growth spurt. Julian’s assessment identified overt issues and more subtle sub-clinical problems which had been hindering my physical preparation. Asa executed the treatment plan. I worked with them during my off-seasons and blended their program into my in-season training. Two seasons later I understand my body far better and I’m playing with far more confidence because all lingering tendon issues have resolved.

Incontinence Triggered By Jumping/Landing
I had been working with MSK PT and AT for a month. As a preventative measure, I recommended that my entire team attend the FACET program for assessment and education. I had been experiencing mild urinary incontinence triggered by jumping/landing since high school, but my teammates and I always made a joke of it. I knew that many women on my team had been experiencing the same thing. I was not aware that it was a sign of pelvic floor muscle dysfunction until I learnt about pelvic anatomy and function from the Pelvic Health PT. I was given simple strategies for reducing my symptoms, and I was scheduled for a follow up visit with the Pelvic Health PT 1 month later. I noticed improvement in my symptoms within 6 weeks. I was so pleased with my progress I encouraged my teammates to get assessed. Two of them have followed my advice so far and are pleased with their progress.
