This April has been extremely exciting for sports fans in Toronto! The Blue Jays and Toronto F.C. just began their season while the Raptors and Maple Leafs were both in the playoffs for the first time since 2002. The Toronto Wolfpack rugby team will play their first home game in early May making them the only transatlantic professional sports team in history. It is certainly a good time to be a Toronto sports fan!
Not only are professional athletes getting active during the spring, but many of us will join recreational leagues as well. Whether this involves slow pitch baseball, golfing, beach volleyball or training for a marathon, it is important to take care of your body to perform optimally and maximize the longevity of your athletic “career.”
We tend to see a large influx of athletes and weekend warriors seeking therapy for injuries that occur from re-engaging in athletic endeavors.
