Krisjon Vargas

MS, BAHS (Athletic Therapy), HBSc, R.Kin, RMT, CAT(C)

Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist

Over the course of his career, Krisjon has provided mentorship to many young physicians and helped athletes and active lifestylers return to their physical lives pain-free and primed to reach levels of performance they didn’t even know were possible.

Currently leading the Integrated Support Team for Canada Basketball’s Junior National Team, Krisjon has treated a variety of complex injuries with an emphasis on correcting biomechanics by addressing soft tissue and motor control dysfunction. As a Certified Athletic Therapist, Krisjon’s approach involves applying manual therapeutic techniques to assess, prevent, and recondition musculoskeletal injuries to enhance overall function and performance. His success is grounded in treating the body as a whole instead of as compartmentalized segments where pain exists.

Experience has taught Krisjon that overall health and physical performance hinges upon the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Recognizing that muscles, ligaments, and joints are interconnected with the body’s neuromuscular and energy systems, Krisjon favours a manual approach to treatment rather than relying upon the use of electrical devices or medication.

“Let’s establish good, basic human qualities first…Do you eat well, do you breathe well, do you $hit well? When we establish that, we can build and improve on your own unique foundation. At the end of the day, we are working on one body…yours. So it only makes sense to work with every aspect of you, who you are, what you do and how you do it. Whether we’re on the treatment table or gym floor, there is no difference; training and rehab are the same thing, balanced within one body.”
