Primal’s approach to Firefighter care is congruent with the International Firefighter’s Association Fire Service Wellness-Fitness Initiative. We believe both Firefighter and Police Officer Health and Wellness is an all rounded approach made up of 4 components:
Injury Rehab & Prevention: This is how Primal was born! We took an elite group of Physiotherapists, Registered Massage Therapists, Performance Coaches and created a multi-disciplinary clinic. With a High Performance Gym onsite, we utilize a variety of treatment techniques to move you into Active Exercise Therapy – physical therapy focused on root cause fixes rather than just pain relief. These techniques can include:
Medical: We work with Medical Doctors and Surgeons (including Orthopedic Surgeons and Neurologists) in the area and form a collaborative Health Services Team.
Physical Fitness: We have been to the fire hall, we know how heavy your tools are, and we have heard the stories from our clients. Firefighting is a physically demanding profession. Firefighters come in different shapes and sizes but no matter what shape and size they have to go from 0 to Hero in no time, which means the better their physical fitness, the better their bodies are able to return from the call unscathed.
At Primal Human Performance, many of our clients move from Injury Rehabilitation & Prevention to our specialized Emergency Professional Training Programs built through our experience with both Firefighters and Police Officers.
Behavioral Health: As with your medical team we work with your Mental Health Team (including Sports Psychologist) to form a collaborative Health Services Team.
