I came to Sync Therapy 3 months after having shoulder surgery from a chronic sports injury. Daryl was instrumental in helping me gain back my mobility and add strength, to help me return to professional sport. Not only does he treat the area where the source of the injury is, but he is meticulous in assessing other areas of deficiencies that may be aiding in pain. He has listened to all my concerns with care and answered all of my questions with an undeniable knowledge base making me feel at ease with my progress and motivated to continue through challenging therapy. Since I have moved to Toronto, Daryl has been in constant contact just to see how I am progressing, and he has provided a tremendous amount of support through the physical and mental battles of re-injury. I would recommend Sync Therapy to anyone who has a sports injury, or those seeking treatment for everyday aches and pains as Daryl goes above and beyond to make sure his clients are healthy both mind and body
Getting hurt is a part of having an active lifestyle – accidents happen. But until I started to see Daryl at Sync Therapy I thought living with these injuries was a part of that lifestyle. Daryl has help me through chronic ankle and knee pain and designed a recovery plan and more importantly an injury prevention plan that fits my lifestyle. I have found his advice, knowledge, and attention to detail second to none. Thanks Daryl and Sync Therapy for all your help!
