Brandon University’s Healthy Living Centre is the new home to a Dynamic Physiotherapy clinic, which will deliver physiotherapy services five days a week in its convenient second location.
“Dynamic Physiotherapy is excited to be adding the second location to our growing physiotherapy practice in Brandon University’s Healthy Living Centre,” said Dynamic’s Darryl Ross. “BU is an important pillar within the city and it is a privilege to be able bring our brand and services to the institution.”
The clinic is an expansion for Dynamic, which maintains its original location on Richmond avenue. The additional location is a great fit for Brandon University and for the Healthy Living Centre.
“Many people know the Healthy Living Centre for our Bobcats events, our fitness centre, and our all-weather walking track,” said Russ Paddock, BU’s Director of Athletics and Community Engagement. “Fitness and healthy living are also about enjoying a full range of functional motion and restoring any impairment, which makes Dynamic Physiotherapy a perfect partner for Brandon University.
The new clinic offers a full range of physiotherapy services, helping with a range of conditions, including sprains, strains, degenerative conditions, whiplash disorders, tendinitis, neck and back pain, post-surgical rehab, post-fracture rehabilitation, custom exercise programs, and vestibular disorders (dizziness/balance problems).
“For university students, there are lot of posture-related strains from stress, from studying or even from sitting in classes,” Ross said. “It is also common to see a lot of repetitive strain problems with musicians related to the number of hours they practice.”
Students may need a doctor’s referral; however some physiotherapy can be covered through the student health plan.
Dynamic’s new clinic is also open to all members of the public, and boasts convenient parking and easy access just off of Victoria Avenue, not far from 18th Street. The best access is the south side of the Healthy Living Centre, with a direct entrance to the clinic and ample parking in the university’s Lot No. 10. Drivers can access the lot from Victoria Avenue, just behind the Glen P. Sutherland Gallery of Art.
Ross says that the location is great for convenience, but also because of what the Healthy Living Centre represents.
“As we have made regular visits to the Healthy Living Centre over the last few months it is great to not only see university athletics programs using the facility, but many local citizens using the fitness facility, the walking track, playing pickleball and more. It is obvious that there is a commitment to live up to the facility’s name and these are ideals that we at Dynamic share,” Ross said. “Because of this, we feel like it is a great fit for us, and we believe that the quality rehab services we are known for will be an asset to the centre.”
