Sport Psychiatry is the practice of diagnosis and treatment of psychological struggles and mental illness in athletes, taking into consideration the unique elements of the sport and the athletes' needs. It is a medical specialty and requires physician referral for access. Services are covered by provincial medical insurance (i.e. OHIP). The primary goal is not always to enhance performance; although effective therapy may achieve that outcome. Athletes may have psychiatric illness that is precipitated or worsened by sport itself, or the pressures of sport may lead to psychological struggles. Concussions, career-threatening injuries, and competition-related disappointments can also cause an athlete to struggle with their mental health. Treatment approaches take into consideration sport-, training-, and competition-focused elements and may include psychotherapy, performance, coaching, and medication (if necessary).
Physiotherapists utilize diagnostic and assessment procedures and tools in order to develop and implement preventive and therapeutic courses of intervention. They apply a collaborative and reasoned approach to help clients achieve their health goals, in particular focusing on the musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiorespiratory and multi-systems.

Certified Active Release Techniques (ART)
A.R.T. is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.
Every A.R.T. session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The A.R.T. provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient.
