These blog posts are related to “Exercise”.  Inside this section, we discuss self assessments and screens, provide useful information about common issues related to exercise pain and injuries, and what you can do to get you back out there doing what you love.  Whether you are just looking for information, a real solution to fix your problem, or speciality care for exercise related pain, the team at Level4 Physio-Wellness-Performance will be able to assist you.  We start with providing valuable and useful information to help you make the best decision about what the next step will be.  In some cases, just getting the right information puts you on the right path to a solution.  In most cases, however, getting on the phone with one of our specialists gives you the opportunity to discuss your specific problem, ask you questions to get the right answers, and then determine what you should do next.  From there, you start to get the answers about what is going on and move forward to an thorough evaluation with your input on what you want to achieve.  Then your plan of care can start, getting you back to doing the things you love!
