Our Process

Initial Assessment

Athletes will undergo an initial assessment with our Clinic Director Dr. Igor Sapozhnikov, D.C to help him understand what challenges need to be addressed. Dr. Sapozhnikov has extensive experience in sports as an elite athlete, coach and a doctor. He is a former professional athlete with the Canadian National Water Polo team, which puts him in a unique position of understanding sports-related conditions both as a doctor and as an athlete.

The assessment will include a technique and skill performance evaluation as well as discussion of overall health concerns.

Program Plan

Based on the assessment results, Dr. Sapozhnikov will recommend an individualized Program plan that may include exercise counselling, chiropractic treatments, spinal decompression and/or other modes of therapy that improve performance and prevent injury.
