Welcome message from site

Strength Through Motion (STM) is a small clinic in its 5th year of operation out of Richmond Sports and Fitness (RSF). It is in a unique position of running inside a large gym facility in which our therapists have the luxury of using for assessments and treatments. As the clinic and gym run symbiotically, clinic and gym staff members have formed close relationships, emphasizing the family-like culture at STM.

STM is located in the north Richmond, BC a few minutes away from the Knight Street bridge connecting to South Vancouver. The immediate area is surrounded mostly by warehouses but is minutes away from several shops and a short drive from central Richmond where you can find Richmond Centre, one of the Lower Mainland’s largest malls. https://www.visitrichmondbc.com/

Patient population description:

At Strength Through Motion, we see a wide variety of patient populations ranging from post-surgical, to motor vehicle accidents, to amateur and professional athletes. Because we are situated within the gym facility of Richmond Sport and Fitness, many of our patients are members of the gym and often come with weight lifting or other sport-related injuries.

These types of learning opportunities may be available at this site:

Students will have the opportunity to learn about a personalized approach to treatment in private practice as at STM, we pride ourselves in providing 1-on-1 appointments. Students will be able to participate in the assessments and treatments of different musculoskeletal conditions and be able to observe the different approach styles of our therapists.

Students will also have the opportunity to learn about the multidisciplinary team approach provided within a private clinic as our physios work closely alongside our RMTs, Chiros, and Kinesiologists.

As our physios are also trained in different styles of needling, IASTM, and hands-on techniques, students will have the opportunity to learn of these approaches to treatment.

Possible Interprofessional opportunities at this site:

Our physiotherapists work closely alongside our RMTs, Chiros, Kinesiologists, and counsellors and students will have the opportunity to speak with and learn from our other team members. Additionally, our physios often work closely with some of Richmond Sport and Fitness on-site personal trainers.
