Performance therapy is a proactive approach to help improve overall strength and health to promote injury prevention and longevity of their bodies.

  • Form Assessment

What is Performance Therapy?

Performance therapy is a combination of movement assessments, strength training and corrective exercises to restore, optimize and enhance one’s performance.

You will work closely along with a health care practitioner with a strong background in strength training to help you reach your strength and rehabilitative goals. Performance therapy can also help you recover from an ailment or any physical condition that may hinder your day to day activities.

The overall aim is to reduce risk of injury, enhance function and performance, facilitate recovery and improve your general fitness and well-being. Performance therapy is for anyone that wants to maximize their physical potential and rehab any pains and/or injuries.

Benefits of Performance Therapy

Improving your overall strength and endurance: a combination of strength and conditioning will help strengthen the muscles and other connective tissue that will help enhance your overall performance/recovery as well as decreasing your overall risk of injury.

Improving your mobility and flexibility: mobility is your body’s ability to move within a certain range of motion. A lack of mobility will cause different areas of the body to compensate and work harder than it needs to. By improving your mobility, it will allow you to freely move without pain and/or any limitations.

Injury prevention and longevity: performance therapy sessions will help target different elements of fitness such as your strength, power, balance, agility, stability as well as your cardiovascular system to ultimately help you become the strongest version of yourself.

How Does Performance Therapy Work?

Personalized form assessment: a personalized form assessment will be conducted during your first session to find any limitations and/or restrictions that may be holding you back. This can vary from assessing your deadlift under load to simply evaluating your joint’s mobility by analyzing your squat form and technique.

Strength and conditioning: a series of different strength and conditioning exercises will be performed to help build your strength/performance and improve your exercise proficiency. Expect a combination of different intensity and volume repetition schemes to help you further excel and challenge the different energy systems.

Corrective exercises and mobility drills: a series of different exercises and drills will also be included to help promote your recovery and minimize any body pains and aches. Stretching and mobilizing will help keep your body flexible and mobile to promote joint health and function and prepare you for your next workout.

Who is Performance Therapy for?

Performance therapy is for anybody wanting to improve their overall strength and may be experiencing any physical ailments and/or dysfunction that are limiting them from performing an activity properly and pain free.

Whether it is correcting your movement patterns in a particular exercise (hip shifting in a squat, etc) or simply building more strength and endurance for injury prevention, performance therapy is for anybody that wants to promote longevity in their sport or improve their quality of life.

You do not need to be injured or an athlete to benefit from Performance Therapy.

Amazing experience with Dr. Ben. He's very knowledgeable and a true people person. I have been struggling with some shin splints and he has been extremely helpful on my recovery journey. Highly recommend.

I go to Chi Hai for physiotherapy and it’s been one of the best experiences I had. I’ve torn my calf muscle and sprained my calf and I have been going to him for some time now and everytime I leave, I always feel better.

A few months before my marathon, I injured my knee. Thankfully, Chi Hai guided me through my recovery. With his help, I was able to complete my first marathon in under 5 hours, just as I had hoped. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a skilled physiotherapist.

James is hands down a top tier practitioner and specialist for sports related injury prevention and rehab and well being in general . I like the attention to detail when discussing various parts of the body and stretching or massaging based on what's needed, and in a way that can actually help your discomforts feel better.

Chi Hai has been an instrumental PT in the recovery for my knee injury. The knee pain is nearly gone thanks to the physio workout regimens he has taught me in the first session. In the first session he showed me clearly how to do every exercise and critiqued everything so I was following the best form possible. Post session he emailed me instructions with the sets and reps for each workout and also advised with YouTube videos for visual descriptions. The physio regimen was not easy, but thanks to pushing myself and staying dedicated to the routine, I feel much better now than 4 months ago. Now we're working on building back my strength and my ability to land safely when jumping. I'm really happy with my progress and I can safely say it is due to Chi Hai's great attention to detail in diagnosing my problems and figuring out the best solution based on my current level of fitness. The thought of being able to sprint full speed and grabbing rebounds while playing basketball again without the thought of pain is something I can't wait to look forward to. Thanks again Lu Strength for your help.

I’ve been to James for injury rehab and general maintenance and would highly recommend Lu Strength and Therapy! I’ve recently started seeing Alcina for physio as well, and both are super knowledgeable and practical in their treatment and prescribed self-care exercises. Their facility is great and has a large gym where they go over exercises and movement patterns with you as part of the treatment. Everyone at the clinic is also super friendly and welcoming.

I've been seeing James for a couple months now and I haven't been disappointed once. I injured my lower back a few months ago and with manual therapy and some prescribed exercises, the nagging pain I experienced went away. Very knowledgeable, genuine and overall a friendly guy. 10/10 would recommend especially if you're in the sport of weightlifting or powerlifting Update: 7 years later I’m still going to James and his team and they’re still doing a fantastic job!

Our facility is located conveniently in Scarborough (McCowan and Highway 401) and easily accessible from Toronto, Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Pickering, Mississauga and Brampton
