To Stretch or Not to Stretch? Strike Recovery and Performance

To Stretch or Not to Stretch?

The answer to this question will depend on many factors, such as what types of exercise and stretching you intend to do. Some do it everyday, some do it once a week, and some haven’t done it in years. Most of us probably learned how to stretch way back in elementary school in our PE classes. Today, those that still stretch might say it prevents injuries, improves performance, or just feels good all around. Those that don’t stretch usually admit that they should stretch, but just don’t work it in. Today, there is lots of science-backed research that explains the benefits of...

What you can expect from us: • Practitioners and patients will be pre-screened for risk-factors prior to appointments, either by email or in-person. • Practitioners will be wearing PPE masks and gloves, as well as increasing cleaning protocols (frequent hand washing, sanitizing the clinic and treatment tables, etc). • Scheduling frequency has been reduced to 1 patient every 45 minutes to decrease flow and allow transition time between appointments, with a strong emphasis on physical distancing. What we expect from you: • Arrive on time for appointments. However, please...

We’ve all experienced a level of pain so intense somewhere, that even the thought of moving that region made us feel sick. Kinesiophobia is the term used for this fear of pain due to movement. The power of the mind is still something that baffles scientists today. You may have heard of those odd, almost folk-lore situations where a person has been able to lift a car off of a loved one when under extreme stress. These are situations that are hard to explain physiologically, yet still happen somehow. As much as we can make positive thinking work for us, the...

The Beginnings

After graduating from Palmer West College of Chiropractic in Silicon Valley, I was fortunate enough to join the well-renowned “OC Fight Docs” team at Kessler Family Wellness in Southern California under the guidance of “The Fight Doc” himself, Dr. William Kessler. This opportunity allowed me to work with patients and athletes of the highest calibre from former and current UFC Champions, to NFL, NHL, CFL, and U.S. Olympic athletes. The experience and skills acquired during my time as an OC Fight Doc was invaluable, and I cherish all the memories with my American family. After learning in April of 2018 that...

Welcome to our site!

The last few months have been an exciting but rocky road. They say that sometimes the only way you can truly learn how to do something is to “throw yourself into the fire.” And let’s just say we’ve already emerged with our fair share of burns. But needless to say, we couldn’t be more thrilled to start serving our beloved Vancouverites at Strike Recovery’s very first location in North Burnaby. Just a few more weeks away! Thank you so much for your patience - our website is now live, and will soon be able to take online bookings for your convenience....
