Our naturopathic doctors address the causes of chronic or acute pain brought on by sports injuries and help you attain your peak athletic performance for a better quality of life.
It is important to know that whether you are a weekend warrior, amateur, professional, or Olympic athlete there are many ways naturopathic medicine can help prevent injuries, improve performance and support recovery. Even if you are not an athlete you may still be suffering from injuries due to an accident, sudden pain or occupational injuries which may be treated similarly to sports related pains.
Let’s take a look at some sports related issues that can benefit an athlete’s performance.
It is not only important to consume healthy foods during training and performance but to also ensure those foods are being processed by the body. Food is the fuel athletes use to perform intensive sports activity. Food also contains the nutrients the body needs to recover from training and rebuild the body. What an athlete eats and how that food is digested and absorbed is critical for their achievement.
Optimum sports nutrition is key to peak sports performance and more importantly good health. A sports nutritional assessment and recommendations by our experienced Sports Nutritionist and Naturopathic Doctors can set you on a positive track to meet your fitness goals. Consider a nutritional consultation as an investment in your health. Learn simple strategies to increase energy, enhance sports performance, and reduce injury. Our professionals have been counselling athletes and active people for over ten years.

We often hear of athletes who are playing through injury and pain but there is no doubt that in most cases the condition of the physical body greatly impacts overall performance. There are many naturopathic treatments created to support the physical structures of the body. The treatments help athletes build their physical body prior to competition but also prevent injuries that may stop them from competing.
