Here is some information from the group presenting the seminar:
" We are The Movement, 3 physiotherapists who are opening up in Dundas in the near future! Beyond our extensive clinical practice, we have been applying ourselves as educators and connectors in the broader physiotherapy field for the past 3 years. But we want to impact the local community, which led us to the Movement. As clinicians, we are very passionate about movement and understanding each individual when it comes to dealing with their pain and injury. All three of us are active hikers, backpackers, cyclists and general lovers of the outdoors and we believe that the more people can understand their own bodies, the more empowered they can be to take control of their health and continue doing the things they love (Hiking) without limitation.

Staying strong for getting back to hiking is going to be a discussion of the general demands of hiking on the trails we love so much and the rationale for doing specific home exercises along with a structured fitness walking routine to ensure your safe and seamless return to the trails when social distancing measures are eased. We will also be providing videos of the recommended exercises to stay strong in the comfort of your home along with a recommended 8 week plan to follow."
