The staff at the Ottawa High Performance Centre were responsible for getting me back on skis within months of an extensive ACL reconstruction. I wanted to get back to sports as soon as possible, and the OHPC was a perfect fit for me.

Are you an athlete who has suffered an injury or had surgery, perhaps on your hips, knee, or shoulder? Do you want to prevent injuries with sports therapy and athletic therapy?
Athletes and active people can experience acute or chronic (one-time or frequent) muscoloskeletal injuries, or have surgery that makes it hard to get back to the way things were.
Athletic therapy involves the prevention, treatment and reconditioning of injuries, or post-surgical rehabilitation for those who need it. With athletic and sports therapy, athletes get back to a healthy, active and safe lifestyle as quickly as possible.
Are you stressed out or sore?
Massage therapy has been used successfully for thousands of years as treatment for injuries, and for relaxation. Ottawa High Performance Centre’s Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) manually massage soft tissues, helping your muscles, tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, fascia and nerves.
They’re trained in myofascial techniques, trigger point therapy, Swedish massage, and prenatal massage. RMTs know how to treat stress-related and repetitive strain conditions, postural dysfuction and sports injuries, so that you can return to functioning at your best.
Do you need help wrapping your head around what you need to accomplish and how you are going to do it?
Elite athletes know that mental preparedness can make or break a competition. A strong state of mind is crucial to good performance, no matter the sport.
Ottawa High Performance Centre offers a range of sport psychology, mental training and counselling services that help athletes to strengthen their minds and emotions so they can achieve their best.
Functional Movement Screens
Functional movement screening, also known as athletic movement screening, is a process done by a therapist to identify a person’s mobility limitations. It is not intended to assess existing injuries, but rather to note areas that may be reducing the effectiveness of your athletic training or predispose you to injuries during sport, so that you can learn how to maximize your athletic abilities and avoid common sports injuries.
Bracing and Orthotics
Would you like to live a life free from pain?
Many people suffer from pain due to various conditions; biomechanical dysfunctions can cause ongoing foot, knee, back, or hip pain. The right bracing or orthotics items can aid you in reducing injuries and pain, increasing strength, and returning to an active, pain-free lifestyle.
Ottawa High Performance Centre’s healthcare professionals offer consultations and fittings for custom-made foot orthotics and knee braces, so that you can get back to living the life you want.
