Mr. Chris Spring

Chris Spring

Senior Physiotherapist

BASc(Physio), MHSc (Ex & Sport), CSCS

Chris completed his physiotherapy degree, while concurrently completing his Masters in Exercise and Sports Science, from the University of Sydney in Australia. During this time, Chris also obtained his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA) designation. Following his graduation, Chris stayed in Australia for six years, working in private practice and in semi-professional rugby.

In 2012, Chris was recruited by Athletes’ Performance (now called EXOS, the largest sports performance company in the world) to be part of the first group of foreign physiotherapists and strength coaches ever to work full time with the Chinese Olympic Committee, to help them prepare for the London Olympics. Following the London Olympics, Chris remained in China until the beginning of 2018, working in various positions with the Chinese Olympic Committee and the Shanghai provincial sports program, including being made the head physiotherapist of Team China from 2013-2015. During this time, he worked with a variety of athletes but spent most of his time with athletes from the national gymnastics, diving, weightlifting, and table tennis teams.

Chris has a special interest in contact and combat sports. He served as the rehab physio for the Vancouver Warriors professional lacrosse team from 2021-2023, and currently works with a number of amateur/professional/national level athletes in wrestling, BJJ, Judo and Muay Thai. He is also a muay thai practitioner himself and still trains regularly.

Chris has a passion to help athletes in all sports, from amateur to professional, rehab from their injuries, to help prevent further injuries, and to excel at their sport through general and sports-specific screening and assessments and prescribing corrective exercises and performance programming. Chris has a great relationship with the coaches (both strength and conditioning and technical) of the athletes that he works with and encourages their involvement in the rehab process.
