Do you ever wonder how athletes and sports players get back in the game so quickly after serious injury, a major accident, or radical surgery?
“How is that possible? Some of these athletes seem even stronger and can run faster than they did before after serious collisions, major surgeries, and devastating injuries. What’s their secret?”
We hate to break it to you. They’ve got grit. But they’re not superhuman. Their surgeons and first responders play a pivotal role. Of course, we'd be lying if we said being in peak physical fitness didn't help too. But the magic behind their recovery and lightspeed return to form is what happens in rehab.
In athletic therapy circles, however, it's not magic. We know that the speed of their recovery and post-surgery fitness comes down to two things; The knowledge and skill of their physiotherapist and access to cutting-edge tech and physiotherapy equipment. It’s that simple.
At Physio For Surgery, we make pro-level treatment accessible to you, so you can achieve all of your goals safer and sooner. So you can get back on your bike, play tennis with your girlfriends or just beat your buddy at Golf again after surgery (or without surgery at all).
You don't even have to be a famous sports star or Olympic athlete.
Anything is possible with the right team behind you.

Nick Halkidis: Builds Bodies Back Better
Nick’s interest in the human body piqued when he took an exercise physiology course as an aspiring young athlete in the twelfth grade. But at that age, Nick’s heart was set on becoming a professional Hockey player – his talent a fitting match for his big ambitions. But fate had other ideas, and he was “stretchered off” that path when injuries derailed him from a promising career as a hockey pro.
At this point, he was nothing more than a “hoser” (or so he believed) – with his long-held aspirations for professional sport in the trash.
But during those dark early days of accepting that life wasn't going to pan out as he planned, Nick flipped adversity on its head and turned it into an opportunity. He channelled his anger and disappointment into a personal quest. His mission was to learn about the human body - how and why things go wrong and what to do about it when they do.
At this point, he was hell-bent on making sure no one's dreams of becoming a professional athlete ended from injuries as his did.
- He studied Kinesiology & Athletic Therapy on the #1 Kinesiology Program in Canada, at York University – finishing top of his class and winning "Student Athletic Therapist of The Year."
- He attained a degree in Massage Therapy at the Royal Canadian College of Massage Therapy and gained his official license to work with patients that same summer.
But Nick didn’t stop there. He went on to study acupuncture on the prestigious McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program. Before working as an Athletic Therapist specializing in Chronic Pain in Newmarket. Currently, Nick is working with Team Canada Junior National Baseball Team. He was also lucky enough to spend time working with the "Hamilton Tiger-Cats" and five years working for a Sports Medicine Clinic in Markham before deciding on a full-time career in private practice.
