Markus von Hacht

Athletic Therapist

Biography

Born and raised in friendly Manitoba, Markus has always had a passion for an active lifestyle, incorporating physical activity into his daily life. In addition to competing in recreational sports such as volleyball, track and field, and ultimate Frisbee, Markus enjoys connecting with nature through hiking and walking with his dog Gryphon.

Markus’ philosophy is that everyone deserves to work and participate in leisure activities or sports pain-free. Markus aims to return patients to work or to the sport they enjoy most as quickly as possible, while mediating the risk of future injury. His assessments consist of taking a thorough history and physical assessment to determine the cause of pain or discomfort. Once the root cause of the injury is determined, the treatment will consist of a personalized rehabilitation plan tailored to each individual’s needs.

Treatments will consist of therapeutic techniques, massage, soft tissue release and mobilizations, in addition to exercises prescribed for the individual’s specific injury. If you have an injury or discomfort affecting your muscles, ligaments or joints then athletic therapy is right for you!
