Honsberger Physiotherapy is proud to be affiliated with GTA Rugby
The list of MLB teams using the Dynavision D2™ during spring training increases each year now including Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians, Houston Astros, and Chicago Cubs. These teams are discovering what The University of Cincinnati's baseball team discovered a few years ago. A vision training program can increase batting averages.
"Vision training can combine traditional and technological methodologies to train the athletes’ eyes and improve batting. Vision training as part of conditioning or injury prevention can be applied and may improve batting performance in college baseball players."
As an interesting sidebar, in the 2014 season, the U if Cincy baseball team had a new coach, and no vision training- this resulted in a 24 point drop in team batting average and a 20% drop in number of hits!!
ThinQ Golf. THINQ Golf features a suite of mental golf video games designed to improve necessary skills such as awareness, attention, synchronicity, intention, and adaptability to achieve cognitive coherency.
THINQ Golf Games are science-based and built through the extensive research of Dr. Debbie Crews and the THINQ Team.
The THINQ Team has learned through testing with EEG's that THINQ Golf Games can change the brain into a more synchronous, or harmonic state , which is necessary for elite level players.

Custom Support Stockings and Compression Therapy
Swelling, fatigue, spider and varicose veins in the lower legs can be relieved by compression socks or stockings. Medically graded to improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage to the heart, compression stockings are beneficial for individuals who sit or stand for long periods of time, travel (especially on airplanes), and for those who have poor circulation in the lower legs. New technology from Therafirm allows easier application of the stockings and therefore more convenient to wear.
Contact our Aurora location for more information and ask to speak with Karen Goodyear, Registered Physiotherapist and Certified Fitter of Compression Stockings at (905) 841-0411 or kgoodyear@ honsbergerphysio.com
Honsberger Preventative Health Index
Helping you save money and improve your health
In today’s business environment with economic downturns and decreased health care benefits, Honsberger Physiotherapy is striving to help its clients save money and maximize their health.
All injuries have some type of cost associated with them. Cost needs to be looked at in at least 3 ways:
1. Physical cost of injury assessment and treatment
2. Lost time and revenue from work or activity
3. Loss of quality of life
With a relatively minor injury, on average 10 sessions are needed for full recovery. This works out to be approximately $600, plus the time lost at work for travel and treatment time. Alternatively a more serious issue such as a disc herniation or knee ligament tear can results in expenses in the thousands of dollars.
For business add in the increased costs of providing health benefits to employees (or workplace safety insurance premiums). As the number of claims increase so does the cost of premiums.
One clear way to avoid injury and the associated costs is to evaluate the risk of injury before it happens. Honsberger Physiotherapy has developed a low-cost, effective health screen to evaluate an individual’s risk for injury. If a problem is found, a series of simple exercises can be given to correct the fault, or a more detailed evaluation may be warranted. In either case, an efficient plan of action can be implemented to help eliminate the risk of injury.
How does a cost of $25 compare to thousands of dollars?
