Physio Dave WorkSafe BC COVID-19 Safety Plan

The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads in several ways. It can spread in droplets when a person coughs or sneezes. It can also spread if you touch a contaminated surface and then touch your face. The risk of person-to-person transmission increases the closer you come to other people, the more time you spend near them, and the more people you come near. The risk of surface transmission increases when many people contact the same surface [...]

At home but open…for some business during Covid-19

Its hard to believe it has been almost been two months since I last worked at the VRC. With so many unknowns during this time our family feels very fortunate. My wife was able to go back to work for the hospitals and I was able to take over most of the weekly childcare.

I tend to jump from one topic to another and although this may not be the most efficient approach it keeps me reading. I like to have different options: library book, fiction, non-fiction, [...]

Why I need an early wake up

Thanks to different jobs and spurts of motivation I have gotten up around 5am, on and off for about 10 years. Yet it wasn't until our second winter with Danny that I finally committed to making it a true habit. I fell out of the routine and on most mornings Danny would wake us up between 5.30 and 6am. If you thinking walking up to an alarm is bad its nothing compared to a screaming [...]

My thoughts on improving flexibility for your sport.

Each sport has unique demands. Certain sports require greater strength, rugby, while others more flexibility, gymnastics.  As you take stock of your abilities and assess your training needs you may find you lack in certain areas. I am strong advocate for leveraging coaches, they can help identify weaknesses in your game and a strength coach or physio can help you develop them (this is of course skills that are not tactical / skill based - [...]
