Human beings must be viewed as complex systems interacting with their environment and a number of ways of approaching this were developed over time. The current understanding of this concept is called Integrative Medicine: "Integrative medicine is a comprehensive, primary care system that emphasizes wellness and healing of the whole person (biopsycho-socio-spiritual dimensions) as major goals, above and beyond suppression of a specific somatic disease." All illness and injury have a causation process that has resulted in the body presenting symptoms. Symptoms such as pain and discomfort are expressions of imbalance. While suppressing symptoms such as acute pain is useful and necessary (think pain from a broken leg), integrative medicine does more than alleviating symptoms. MaxFit’s consulting western physicians believe in integrating all aspects of the very complex human system — physical, emotional and spiritual — in order to achieve balance and sustained health.
Life starts with movement. From cells to entire organisms, movement makes life possible and maintains an optimal state of health. One of the most amazing accomplishments of a human being, movement, will be affected during your lifetime by a number of factors. Even small things, over time, have a significant impact. Accidents, sports injuries, incorrect positions during work or while performing sports can impair your mobility. When movement is impaired, health declines. Staying true to our philosophy, the MaxFit Movement team integrates knowledge and skills to provide you with the best of care that will help you heal, improve your state of health, correct movement and enhance your athletic performance. To celebrate movement with the community and to stay true to the MaxFit vision, the team invites you to join us for exploring the great outdoors. Hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking, canoeing, we provide you with opportunities to expand your movement horizons. Rain or shine, summer or winter, that is. Because we’re passionate about helping you keep moving.
MaxFit Movement Institute was born in 1998. Like every good thing, and especially those that last, the clinic was the result of a vision that MaxFit Movement Institute be more than a sports therapy and wellness clinic. The institute was envisioned to be a community where people get help, improve, connect and learn to lead health-sustainable lifestyles. A community that helps people discover the fun and necessity of movement. Our core beliefs: • Working with the client as the centre of the treatment program because healing and health begin with you • Trust in the human body’s ability to heal itself and thus design the treatment strategy around that powerful feature • Have a truly client-centered approach that allows us to hear your experience and make shared decisions The present MaxFit team continues to embrace this vision, supporting our clients in a variety of ways. Our patients range from all walks of life and all age groups. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or you’re someone whose idea of a workout is going down the stairs to the garage, we can help get you moving and also motivate you to keep moving. In order to increase your athletic performance and help you avoid injury, or help you break into new sports, we can conduct a complete biomechanical evaluation and create a plan to help you integrate sustainable movement into your lifestyle. In other words, we will look at how you sit, stand, walk, and run. We will ask about where and how you sleep and after identifying what needs to be corrected, we will design a plan to make it happen.
