New Trends in the Prevention of Running Injuries
Aren is proudly from Winnipeg and graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Master of Physical Therapy degree. His passion for running, inclusiveness, health and community wellness are some of the main reasons he became a Physiotherapist. He truly believes that movement is the best medicine and is excited to start delivering this message here at Westcoast SCI.
As a Physiotherapist, Aren’s treatment approach is grounded in building a positive environment around you while respecting your unique situational needs. He uses a client-specific approach that focuses on client education, graded exercise programs that are specific to you, and manual therapy to help empower clients to move safely, confidently, and freely so that they can live their lives the way they want to. Aren has had experience working in a variety of settings that include, Orthopaedics, Intensive Care Unit, Acute Medicine and has treated a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries such as low back pain, knee, ankle and foot pain, and shoulder/neck pain. Finally, Aren has a preferred area of interest in the treatment of runners. Whether you’re new to running or have been running for many years, Aren is looking forward to providing you with the knowledge and tools that can help you manage and prevent injuries so that you can move and run free. Outside of the clinic, Aren lives by what he preaches and can often be found doing what he moved out west for – running along Vancouver’s beautiful running paths.
What do you like to do in your free time?
This is easy for me, in my free time i love to run and just be outdoors and enjoying nature.
What kind of Physiotherapy do you do, and do you have an area of interest or specialization?
The physiotherapy I do revolves around active rehab, so I love exercising clients and I love teaching them how to move safely and confidently. My area of interest would be running, it is a passion of mine and I love working with people who have running related injuries or just want to start learning how to run better or faster.
Why did you choose physiotherapy?
I chose physiotherapy because through running and my experiences with the body through exercise and physical activity, I’ve learned how the body can do amazing things and I want to share that in a positive way with the community.
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a new patient?
One piece of advice I would say is never underestimate yourself. Your body is capable of really amazing things and through commitment and consistency I believe you can get to where you need to get to.
What do you like about Westcoast SCI?
I chose Westcoast SCI because of the teamwork. The teamwork between the therapists, the kinesiologists, the entire staff here is something that appealed to me and I want to be able to share everything I learned with the team here, and with all of the people in the community.
