It's tough to play ultimate for several years completely injury-free. Ultimate is a demanding sport on the body so we've partnered with a few athletic therapy partners that can help fix you when you're broken:
Jointworks Chiropractic is a favorite sports therapy clinic for ultimate players in Vancouver. Their chiropractors are licensed doctors in orthopedic testing, advanced manual therapy, and sports concussion management, in collaboration with physiotherapy.
As competitive ultimate, powerlifting, and soccer players themselves, they understand the importance of injury prevention and recovery. Their goals are to relieve your pain, speed up your recovery, and enhance your performance, so you can get back onto the field, as soon as possible.
Jointworks has a hands-on approach to healthcare with safe, comfortable, and customized treatment that really helps. Their team includes chiropractic, physiotherapy, registered massage therapy, and kinesiology, as well as acupuncture and naturopathic medicine.
Jointworks combines their love of ultimate with their passion for sports therapy. Their team provides one-on-one care for each patient and creates a treatment plan including an accurate diagnosis, thorough treatment, physiotherapy, and performance training.
Jointworks also provides custom orthotics specialized for ultimate. The design is low profile and durable to create stability and comfort. Examinations include a thorough history, biomechanical analysis, digital gait scan, and a 3D volumetric cast.
Everyone is unique, and personalized care is the heart of their business. Their clients are everyday people with a connection to the ultimate community, whether it’s through family, friends, colleagues, or teammates. Everyone is welcome at Jointworks!
