What our patients say

If you want to live pain free by retraining your body to move properly, then you must invest in Sandra’s physiotherapy programs.

If you want to live pain free by retraining your body to move properly, then you must invest in Sandra’s physiotherapy programs. This is not a quick fix, but I can guarantee that if you persevere with Sandra’s programs, you will move better and feel better.

Sandra has been my physiotherapist for over 20 years and has helped me through several catastrophic injuries which could have left me in a wheel chair. I am an active 60 year old, thanks to her help and dedication to her patients. Like so many people, my past injuries have come back to haunt me as I age. I am now working on learning how to use and move my feet correctly so that my knees and hips will carry me through to my 100th birthday!

Sandra’s approach is very different in that she asks WHY there is pain.

Sandra has been incredibly helpful to me since I began seeing her a number of years ago. I have seen other physiotherapists who have given strengthening/stretching exercises which helped alleviate pain only so long as I kept up with the exercises. Sandra’s approach is very different in that she asks WHY there is pain and gets to the source cause. My pain (knee, back) has been alleviated long-term as I have been taught and coached to understand more about how my body is supposed to move. It is empowering to keep on doing the activities I enjoy as I age rather than let the aches and pains win.

Sandra has provided me with exercises that have rewired my brain into loading the areas I had been protecting all these years.

I came to Sport & Spine after dealing with a lingering lower abdominal issue – a problem area for many years. Since re-aggravating this area, I had difficulty sleeping and avoided heavy lifting as these activities would only intensify my discomfort. I was concerned surgery was the only answer, until I met Sandra. In just 12 weekly appointments, Sandra not only relieved me of any discomfort, but also identified the underlying cause, stemming from improper recovery from a hernia surgery years prior. Sandra has provided me with exercises that have rewired my brain into loading the areas I had been protecting all these years. As a result, I sleep through the night, I have regained the confidence to utilize this forgotten part of my body, the best of all, NO SURGERY! Thank you Sandra

Sandra knows what she’s doing and gives you confidence you’ve never had before.

On October 15, 2021 I dislocated my knee in P.E. class playing dodgeball. A few years earlier I had broken the same leg and never fully recovered. At first I was too scared to even bend my knee. Sandra used laser therapy to help with the pain. She set goals for me to accomplish and boosted my confidence. There was multiple days when I lost confidence and didn’t feel like doing anything. For months I couldn’t play P.E. and that made me really frustrated. My friends asked to skip out so they could stay with me. Some of the exercises really hurt, but I kept telling myself it would be worth it in the end. Sandra knows what she’s doing and gives you confidence you’ve never had before. Thank you!

I have the tools to live pain-free

Came with back pain that affected most daily activities. Began working on core issues and noticed relief quickly. I can now recognize situations that affect pain and can correct my body accordingly. Thank you for giving me the tools to live pain free.

Other methods didn’t help, Sandra gave me the tools to be mobile & pain free

The discomfort to my right leg and hip started a decade ago. I ignored the stiffness at first, it would improve then get worse until it became something that I was aware of everyday, thought about all the time. Any amount of sitting could be uncomfortable and it bothered me at night. I saw a chiropractor, massage therapist and several physiotherapists. Treatment would make temporary improvements but no one could explain the problem or more importantly, show me something I could do for myself. Since meeting Sandra I have less pain and stiffness, can sit without pain, sleep better and I feel like I have knowledge and the tools to stay more mobile and pain free.

Surgery was not the way

When I came to Sport & Spine Physiotherapy I had very limited mobility from a hemorrhaged disc (L4-L5) on my sciatic nerve. I was in a very bad way; hunched over, on handfuls of medication. I was told surgery was the only way, but that didn’t sit right with me. After a year and a half of hard work, I can finally say I feel normal again. Something I thought I would never feel. Sandra found the right exercises that worked for me. I will forever be grateful for what you taught me.

“The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art!” – Leonardo da Vinci

At Sport & Spine we believe that the best strategy for solving foot pain is restoring movement and strength instead of bracing with orthotics. If traditional foot solutions have failed you, we can help! 

Cold Laser Therapy

Sport & Spine Physiotherapy uses three types of Class 3B lasers; THOR, Theralase, BioFlex. The bio-stimulating effect of laser therapy causes a decrease in both pain and inflammation. It accelerates healing by increasing tissue regeneration.

Benefits of treatment include; rapid cell growth, anti-inflammatory action, increased vascular activity, stimulated nerve function.

Laser Therapy is a safe and effective way to eliminate pain without medication, injections or surgery. It is clinically proven to eliminate pain, accelerate healing and restore your quality of life. Break free from back and shoulder pain.

Lasers work by supplying the body with billions of photons of light at very specific wavelengths. The body absorbs this laser light on a cellular level and transforms it into chemical energy, which the body then naturally uses to repair its own tissue.
