Martensville Collective Health and Wellness Clinic’s owner, Trevor Adamus, has been selected as one of the working physiotherapists at the 2017 Canada Games which will be located in Winnipeg on July 28th through to August 13th. There are 19 sports in action at the Games and Adamus will be on site at the Track and Field events which will be running through from July 28th to August 4th. “There will be a mix of local therapists from Winnipeg and surrounding areas as well as sponsored therapists such as myself,” informed Adamus. “During my experience with track I always enjoy working with and beside athletes and therapists from other provinces and countries and seeing their training and treatment techniques. It is also nice to be involved as a team with many other medical practitioners, similar to our clinic at Martensville Collective Health and Wellness.” Adamus was chosen to participate in this nation-wide event due to his obvious skill and education in the practice as well as through his healthy involvement in previous national and international track events such as the World Junior Track and Field Championships, the Canadian Junior Track and Field Trials and the Pan Am Junior Track and Field Championships. “My most memorable competitions have been the World Junior and Pam Am Junior Championships, but every time I am selected to be involved with Athletics Canada I am very honored. It lets me know I must be doing something right!” mentioned Adamus.
Martensville is lucky to have such educated, experienced and passionate health care workers alike to Adamus in our own clinic. Since obtaining his Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy in 2008 at the University of Saskatchewan and his Clinical Masters in Manipulative Physical Therapy from the University of Western Toronto in 2013, Adamus has since continued to further his education. The Certificate of Advanced Manual Therapy was achieved in 2013 and the Certificate in Sport Physiotherapy was achieved in 2014 along with many other completed courses. Adamus has also been involved in teaching at the School of Physical Therapy and the College of Medicine and is also a consultant for the Sport Medicine and Science Council of Saskatchewan. A great deal of passion goes hand in hand with the extensive education that makes Adamus a sincerely skilled therapist, rightfully selected to work at the 2017 Canada Games.
As a physiotherapist, the main goal for Adamus is to get people active and to allow those who are active to engage with pain-free activity. “Many people have learned to live with pain in their day to day activities. They are often surprised when they realize that isn’t always something that they need to live with,” said Adamus. Adamus executes the practice of manual therapy as well as spinal manipulations, sport therapy, concussion management, pre and post op rehabilitation, preseason screening, exercise prescriptions and custom bracing. People of all ages can benefit through the work of physiotherapy in order to allow comfortable living and optimal health for athletes and active lifestyles. Adamus recognizes the importance of sport and activity. “Sport helps athletes to learn many life values such as building self-esteem, working as a team, being able to excel in stressful situations, developing friends and much more.”
