The Proactive Athlete’s mission is to provide the best evidenced based care to optimize the health and performance of athletes at all levels. Peter Kissel and Dave Schenkel launched The Proactive Athlete in 2009 by partnering with Sports Specific Training, a High Performance Training facility located in Burlington, Ontario. Presently we operate 2 multidisciplinary clinics located in Burlington and Milton, offering a variety of therapeutic services to ensure that you see the healthcare professional best suited to your needs. Our priority is to partner with our clients and enable them to take a proactive approach to their health.
What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?
We are a multidisciplinary clinic with Sports Specialist Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Athletic Therapy, Registered Massage Therapy, and Acupuncture. We are located within a 4000 square foot gym that we utilize for active care. We have extended appointment times compared to other clinics (20-60 minutes), and the entire time is spent one on one with your therapist. We do not believe in delegated care. We take a proactive approach to your healthcare and work within a true team environment to tailor your care to fit your specific needs.
What are you and your team proud of at your practice?
We have been serving the Burlington community for over 6 years. We have a great working relationship with local physicians, many of whom refer directly to our clinic and we send communication back to patient's doctors. We support the Burlington community. Examples are our 5 year business fundraiser where we donated all revenues for 2 days to the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation. We also support local teams, events, and charities.
