Thrive Now Physiotherapy is Expanding – Full or Part-Time Sports Med Physician

As of February 2018 we will have an opening for a full or part-time Sports Medicine Doctor at one of our progressive, expanding physiotherapy clinics, Thrive Now Physiotherapy, in Cobble Hill or Duncan BC.

Want to know more about us?

We have been in business for 20 years as South Cowichan Physiotherapy but have recently re-branded to Thrive Now PhysiotherapyWe have also opened a second location in Duncan, BC, about 20 minutes north from our existing Cobble Hill location. As a result of high demand, we are expanding our current clinic offerings to include complementary services; massage therapy, chiropractic, nutritional and sports medicine.

What do we strive for?

We rebranded to Thrive Now Physiotherapy in order to better reflect our goal of optimizing the health of all our patients. Rather than just “the break and fix” model of treating the pain and then discharging the patient, we aim to continue to follow up with our patients over the long-term. This ensures that our clients not only get back to normal but keep getting even healthier.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a sports medicine doctor who is motivated to practice in line with our mission statement above. This requires excellent communication skills, a willingness to constantly challenge the current theories of pain and injury biomechanics, out of the box thinking to craft custom, individualized treatment plans, an ability to work with other clinicians and associates to find solutions for more difficult cases, and a commitment to furthering your skill set through continuing education.

All of our current clinicians take advantage of our generous continuing education funding to meet these goals. “The Top 5 Reasons You Should Choose Us!”

  1. Great Mentorship

The practitioners at our clinic have a great culture of sharing insights about patient care so that all of us can provide the best experience to our patients. We even provide FREE mentorship with a certified FCAMPT mentorship for our physio team.

  1. Variety in Your Caseload

In our experience, one of the most important things for the development of your career is to be exposed to a variety of different patients. We definitely can provide that! As a member of our team you will treat: recreational and high level athletes, workplace injuries, motor vehicle accident patients, military members, police officers, and many more!

  1. Being Surrounded by peers with a VARIETY of skills

We are lucky to be able to offer a wide range of services to our patients. As mentioned above, we have a FCAMPT trained PT and several PTs with medical acupuncture and IMS training. However, we also have PTs who specialize in: scoliosis treatment with the Schroth method, vestibular rehab, a certified yoga teacher, and a certified strength and conditioning specialist.

  1. Stream-lined, No-Hassle Work Environment

We were one of the first clinics in BC to adopt EMR and our team loves how quickly they can do their charting. No more trying to decipher someone else’s handwriting! We also are one of the few clinics in BC who have access to the medical imaging database in our health region. So, our customer care team can look up that MRI, US, or x-ray report in a manner of seconds rather than having to wait until next visit for the patient’s MD office to fax us one over. We also encourage all of our staff to adopt any technology that makes their life easier and their treatment better. We aim to stay ahead of the curve by using social media to connect with our patients through blogs and Facebook posts.

  1. A great location!

Probably one of the most important points! We are located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. We are only 40 minutes from either Victoria or Nanaimo. However, there is often very little need to go to either! Why would you when our clinic is a 5 minute drive to the ocean and some of the best kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, sailing, fishing, and whale watching you can imagine. Like mountain biking? We have a variety of world class trails 10 minutes out our back door. Same goes for hiking and golfing. Did I mention that we are also surrounded by a dozen wineries? “Cowichan” literally means warm land and we benefit from one of the warmest climates in all of Canada (most winters we don’t get snow). If you’re a coffee fanatic then just below our clinic is the best coffee shop on the whole island. If you’re thinking of settling down here then you can also buy a nice house on a half acre for much less than a condo in downtown Vancouver.
