Vancouver Physiotherapist Sports and Manual Therapy Rehab Clinics – Nancy Wang

Hi everyone. I'm Nancy. The reason why I got into physio is because when I was younger, my mom was in a car accident which left her at the hospital for about a month. And when she came home, she was unable to walk independently. So as a young child, being able to see my mom's rehab journey, was very inspiring for me.

And that's what sparked my initial interest in physiotherapy. Growing up had always been very active. So I love to rock climb and love a cycle and I love to do CrossFit. Those are my three favourite things to do. So as I was approaching going to university, I thought that physiotherapy would be the perfect profession for me because it involved bringing my active lifestyle and also my love for interacting with people into my job. So I find that I have such a great time, every time I go to work and it's basically like doing what I love for work. 

So the reason why I chose to work at Insync is because I feel that Insync is very involved in the community. We do a lot of events like going to a rock climbing or going to figure skating events. And I really like being able to engage with the community and engage with people that I am going to be treating in their natural environment. 

Another reason why I love Insync is because we have an awesome gym. Something that's really important to me as a therapist. Over the time that I've been a physio, I find is a squat rack and a pull up bar, and we have all of that here and I get to have a lot of fun in the gym, which I really appreciate.

And the third thing is that one of my best friends from physio school works here as well. So I get to see her in the clinic which is awesome, and I have this dream of high-fiving her every single time I pass by her at the clinic.

And I have a dog. He is my best friend. He's my furry best friend. I adopted him when I was in university and it kept me company ever since. He's three years old now. Our favourite things to do together are go to the beach, run in the trails, we often go to Pacific Spirit. I love to trail run with him and also hike, we go to Dog Mountain a lot. And snowshoeing a lot.
