Catalyst Physio and Sports Performance

Vincent Sy has practiced in Alberta, British Columbia, and Virginia over the past nine years. He completed his Bachelor’s of Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2010 and continued his studies there for his Master’s of Physiotherapy, completed in 2012. Since graduating, he has pivoted away from a purely structural approach, embracing the complexity and challenges faced when working within a more holistic person-centred model.

Over the years, Vincent’s treatment philosophy and approach to physiotherapy have evolved to provide a more active, movement focused, and empowering model. What hasn’t changed is his continued focus on providing the best outcomes and results using evidence informed practice – a combination of applying the most up to date research, clinical expertise, and taking into account patient values and preferences. This involves digging into current and evolving musculoskeletal research and working collaboratively with clients to decide the best plan of action for them to reach their goals. Knowledge translation of research to practice is something he feels very passionate about and continues to improve on.

From a personal and professional outlook, Vincent understands that rehab, training, and performance all exist on a continuum. He recognizes that establishing skilled movements for performance and in daily life can help build confidence which in turn allow for long term sustainable change. He actively works with his clients, building resiliency and self-efficacy through a combination of manual therapy, exercise, and education. Vincent has a special interest in working with thoracic outlet syndrome, runners, and knee (patellofemoral) pain. While working with all clients, he is a movement optimist, believing in the variability and the durability of the body and the inherent ability to adapt and improve given the right stimulus.
