Kurt's Story

Kurt Browning has been skating for as long as he can remember. As a four-time World Champion and four-time Canadian National Champion, Kurt hasn’t escaped injury. Through his career, Kurt’s long list of injuries include a fissure in his back, slipped disks, injuries in both knees, a dislocated shoulder and a number of sprained ankles – often while he was competing.

In the 1992 Olympics it was a back injury that kept Kurt from performing at his best. Soon after he started physiotherapy on a regular basis.

“I’ve worked harder because I wasn’t the Olympic champion at my professional career.”

At age 50, Kurt is still skating. “As I age I relish every second on the ice. I use physiotherapy as a way of making what I love last longer.”

Helping you defy expectations

You may not be a professional athlete, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have the drive to do your best and keep improving. With the help of physiotherapy, the sports you loved in your youth can still be enjoyed as you age.

While many might expect you to slow down or give your sport up, a physiotherapist can help you keep going. By being your health-care partner, your physiotherapist will not only help you challenge the expectations of others, but also your own expectations as well.
