Ellie Black is a Canadian artistic gymnast and Olympian who lives and trains in Halifax. The sport she loves is one of the most physically demanding of all: it requires almost super-human strength, balance, flexibility, agility, endurance, and control.
Staying healthy and being in peak physical condition are crucial to achieving competitive success, especially at the elite level.
For Ellie, "Physiotherapy has been a big component of my gymnastics career so far. Training as hard as I have makes it necessary to have constant contact with my physiotherapist. Together, we have worked through injuries large and small, and I'm sure that I've avoided others because of our injury prevention plan. I'm very lucky to have such a great team behind me; I wouldn't be where I am without them!”
