Forfitness and Athletics Performance Centre is dedicated to providing exceptional therapy services in order to help our Rothesay clients achieve and maintain their optimal physical health and wellness goals. We are committed to excellence in the assessment, treatment, and prevention of injuries associated with a sport, physical activity, occupation, and ageing.
Bridging the gap between rehabilitation, performance, and function we focus on a holistic, movement-based approach to injury. Our team conducts a thorough evaluation of the injury as a whole – including all factors leading up to it. We look for imbalances and deficiencies that could have played an important role in how and why the injury took place. At Forfitness and Athletics, our treatments are based on your individual needs, not solely on general symptoms. Our team of experienced therapists works together in a collaborative environment to provide each client with the best possible care.
