For over 40 years, Tom has been very involved with amateur sport as an elite athlete, chief administrator , event organizer and fundraiser .Training in excess of 30 hours a week for over 15 years , followed in later years by maintaining a regular fitness program and continuing to participate in several sports had taken a toll on various parts of his body.
After several cortisone sessions and years of various physiotherapy sessions , the pain in his shoulder continued to cause significant mobility issues and was interfering with his sleep.
3 years ago Tom was referred to Sport Specialists by colleagues in the sport industry and thought that he would give the studio a try ,hoping to find some type of corrective training routine. Within a very short period of time, it was clear that further investigation was required to determine a positive corrective course of action.Tom was introduced to Melanie who immediately was able to assess the issue and create a training regimen that suited Tom knowing that, as he progressed, so too should his training routine.
With consistent 1x/week therapy on the neck, upper back and shoulder and a conditioning program under regular supervision at the studio, the pain level and mobility improved substantially in about 6 months. After 1 year of consistent training and therapy at SPORT Specialists, Tom had regained over 90% of normal mobility!
“I have always been a strong promoter of active for life and that maintaining a regular level of physical activity , will lead to a better quality of life as I age”
“Now, well into my sixties ,I am playing the best golf I have ever played and continuing to enjoy a fairly active lifestyle in a variety of activities and sports.”
“I have been involved with organizations that train and develop elite athletes and have seen their successful return from serious injuries when the correct path and support is provided.”
“I was given a correct path and guidance from the team at SPORT Specialists that I did follow over a significant period of time and achieved the results and outcome of the work and support. Sport Specialists are a process-management and results-oriented studio that lead the current trends in athletic therapy and do help build better bodies for life in their studio.
“Should anyone want to have a better quality of life as they age , require corrective action to injuries or are still competing in sport and want to build a better performing body, then understanding that results are achieved through a process and are not one shot deals is a good beginning to achieve the desired results.”
“Sport Specialists are now a significant part of my developing a better body for life to maintain my active lifestyle ,hopefully for many more years”
Thanks again to Melanie ,Peter and the team they are exceptional !
