The Definition of stride (strīd): 1) a single coordinated movement: Here at STRIDE, we work closely with other healthcare professionals to make sure you are getting the best, most relevant care available. 2) significant progress: At Stride, we expect, as should you, to make gains with your treatment. The timeline in which these changes should take place will be discussed with you in detail. Although most problems don’t change overnight, you should be able to see improvements with specific markers and overall quality of life in a reasonable timeframe. 3) a step walking or running: Stride practitioners strongly encourage you to participate in your recovery. While you don’t need to be a top-level athlete, we do expect most people to participate in some degree of home-based exercise. This is often just a few short stretching or strengthening exercises that will make a big difference in your recovery. They will all be designed specifically for you, so no matter your age, fitness level, or degree of pain, you can start taking charge of your body. 4) to attain a maximum level of competence: Just like in anything, health and wellness providers have a wide range of skills and training. At STRIDE, our practitioners continually upgrade their training to ensure we are providing industry-leading and research-based services. This is something that sets us apart. Let us help you hit your STRIDE!
We are dedicated to ensuring the health needs of our clients are surpassed. When passing through our doors, every client is treated with the absolute best our professions and the varied skill sets our practitioners have to offer.
We strive to remain mindful of and reduce our environmental footprint any way we can, such as reducing paper in our daily operations and recycling as much as possible to minimize the burden shouldered by future generations.
Maintaining excellence as our standard of care is guaranteed and keeping up with skills supported by best evidence in the research literature is integral to our practice. Stride encourages and proudly invests in our therapists as they engage regularly in professional development endeavours.
We are of service daily to our community through our practice, but in addition to this, we understand the importance of and have a very strong desire to give back to the good people of this city through job creation, sponsorship of individuals and organizations, and various volunteer opportunities.

The start of January brings on a busy gym season. This happens for a couple of reasons: 1) New Year’s resolutions are in full swing and people are still determined and 2) people are realizing that the summer body they are dreaming of needs to be ready in about 5 months. As much as we Read more about From Meh to Yes![…]
A New Year is here, and as always, that brings New Year’s resolutions. One of the most common resolutions I hear is one I’m just as guilty of making and then not keeping myself. Something along the lines of: “New year, New me!” or “Start exercising and dieting!” or “By summer, you wont recognize me!” Read more about It’s Just Food[…]
The holidays. One of my favourite times of the year to get together with family and eat all the traditional, wonderful food. It brings back memories of Christmas baking, my grandmother’s raspberry marshmallow salad, tasting my grandpa’s newest batch of local fruit wine, and making food with my mother. It’s safe to say that food Read more about Holiday Survival Tips from a Dietitian[…]
It’s been a little longer than I had initially planned for an update! Would it surprise you to know that once competition season started, I haven’t had much spare time to sit, reflect and report?

When you hear the words “core training” what do you think? Most would automatically say sit ups, planks, or some other variation of exercise designed to work our rectus abdominus or our “six pack” muscles. We hear it all the time — people want to “strengthen the core” or “flatten that stomach” and they automatically Read more about Inner Core[…]
Safe Arrival It never seems to make a difference how long it has been since I was in my homeland – I find great comfort and familiarity in being here – like I have never been away. If I could bottle up Scottish air and Scottish water and bring them back to Canada, I definitely Read more about Kellycurls #2[…]
Whether you just completed a workout or you are coming off the track at an endurance event, recovery nutrition is an important step in your performance regime.

If ya’ll remember back to the very first vlog I did on tips for long distance runners (feels like eons ago!), I had mentioned briefly about the importance of maintaining blood sugars and hydration during your event. The primary concern for marathon runners nutritionally while performing, is the intake of carbohydrates, fluids, and the electrolyte, Read more about Fuelling on the Run[…]
