Vancouver Physiotherapist Christina Wan – Sport & Spinal Injury Rehabilitation

What do you like most about being a Physiotherapist?
I like that I am able to do an assessment and pin point what might be causing someone's discomfort or pain and then from there, being able to decide with the client what solutions might be beneficial for them to make a long-lasting impact for their life.

Why did you become a Physiotherapist?
I became a physical therapist when I realized that most people, live with some sort of pain in their life. Whether that means they have some of neck pain from studying or pain from day to day activities, or just knee pain from running. I think that most people are aware of the traditional medical approach with dealing with pain but not everyone's aware of the benefits that physiotherapy has. I want to be a part of that change.

Why did you choose to work at INSYNC PHYSIO?
Well, first of all I really like that INSYNC wants to build this bond with the community and the commitment they have with their clients. One of the things that stood out to me was that INSYNC offers focused one on one treatments, which to me emphasizes that they really do care about their clients and they want them to get better. I also like that they are onsite and available at a lot of sports and community events. Aside from helping people who get injured during these events, they bring awareness to the community as to how physiotherapy can help.

What are your outside interests/ hobbies?
I love trying new things, I love eating, I love finding new places to eat, I love travelling… that’s kind of what I like to do.

What is your special interest / focus in treatment if any?
I really like treating necks and backs. The reason why is because I think that everyone at some point in their life will have some sort of neck and back pain. I think those are the two areas that piqued my interest and are things that I am passionate about.
