Welcome to Nelson's Institute for Sport, Health & Rehabilitation

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN-CLINIC OR ONLINE!

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kootenay Health Services are offering both in-person and online services. Appointments completed in-clinic will be accompanied by strict safety and screening protocols to ensure the well-being of our clients, staff, and community. Our online platform was an important resource to our community in the height of closures, and will provide ongoing support to those who continue to access these services from home.

Tendon Talk!

What is tendinopathy? And why don’t we use the term tendinitis anymore? Tendinopathy means tendon dysfunction, and more accurately describes what is happening in a painful tendon. Inflammation is not always present…

A New Page in History for Nelson’s Oldest Church

We are back for in person appointments! Did you know that we moved into our new clinic at 602 Kootenay Street in April of 2019. We renovated the oldest church in Nelson…

What People Are Saying

What to say about someone who changes your life? Perhaps just that: Craig Sully changed my life. I came to Craig three years ago well broken. My left leg (bad knee) freshly failed: I could not walk without a cane. Now, 12 months post op from a total knee replacement after 24 months bracing, hands on work, stretching and exercises a la Craig, I stand (literally!) a changed man.

What I know is that Craig has been instrumental in my transformation from cripple to near (!) runner. His armamentarium includes not only the skills and knowledge of a seasoned healer, he also - and this is critical in recovery I am learning - exudes a deep confidence in the process of healing itself. Without his confidence I would have given up or at least let up and I would be lesser for it.
The disclaimer here is that the work has been and remains mine. And wow: it’s a lot of work. But having Craig as guide and director - I hurried back to Craig post surgery -has made all the work, work. Thank you Craig Sully. I wouldn’t be the same without you.

I met Robyn and Craig about 7 years ago while working out at the same gym. During one of the classes I injured myself and Robyn reached out right away to check in and booked me in to see Craig. This was the beginning of the great support and service that I have received from them and everyone at Kootenay Health Services. They have both helped me through body/muscle imbalances, strengthening and proper movement patterns. Recently I underwent ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair surgery and throughout the recovery the staff at KHS has been my ‘pit crew’ – always there for support and assistance. Robyn and Craig have been instrumental in my rehabilitation process – pushed me, talked me off my ledge, eased my anxieties and gave me the exercises and therapy necessary to get me back to the level of activity that I enjoy!
Craig, Robyn and their Team care about you and make you feel like a part of their family. I am so grateful for having meet them and thank them for everything they have done for me and look forward to their continued support!

We are so fortunate to have Kootenay Health Services in Nelson. Whether I'm going for physiotherapy, massage therapy, spin or kettlebell classes, I'm always treated with respect and appreciation. This is a multi-service clinic like none other.

Robyn and Craig's vision of their clinic is a reflection of the passion they have for healing their clients in a welcoming and unintimidating space.
