Physiotherapy Services 

Ortona is pleased to welcome Pivotal Physiotherapy onto our team for the duration of the 2019 Provincial Championships. Pivotal Therapy will be on-site for athlete use during the competition. All athletes, please bring your own taping supplies. Help us welcome Pivotal Therapy by meeting the team:

INTRODUCTION

Mission: Our mission at Pivotal Physiotherapy is to deliver a model of service that supports the athlete and all of his/her individual needs.  This model transcends the traditional concept of physiotherapy to include services such as injury prevention, injury management, athletic and mental performance, nutrition, and recovery. 

Vision: We aim to be the premier destination in the Edmonton area for athletes looking to improve their movement, their performance, and their recovery. We are building and expanding upon an integrated service model of injury management, return to sport planning, and performance (programming, enhancement, optimization). 

Values: We offer a full backroom support team to athletes because we believe proper movement is crucial to maintaining a high level of function in sport and performance as well as high quality of life.  Therefore, guidance along this journey with intelligent counsel is vital.
