Featured Member: Quantum Sport Therapy

Located on Lower Water Street, Quantum Sport Therapy is an all-in-one therapy, wellness, and fitness hub. Committed to treating injuries and improving the performance of athletes, Quantum offers a unique multidisciplinary approach to help patients reach their individual goals.

Quantum started when Clinic Director, Dr. Karlee Handy, gained experience working with prestige clientele in Toronto before making her way back to Halifax where she attended Dalhousie University to open the city’s first collaborative sport therapy clinic.

FINDING HOME IN HALIFAX

Having enjoyed Halifax during the completion of her Bachelor’s degree at Dalhousie University, Dr. Handy always had it on her radar as a location to call Quantum’s home. While living in Halifax, Dr. Handy’s active lifestyle led her to discover that Downtown was lacking a clinic that encompassed medicine, physical therapy, and movement. After a few setbacks related to the pandemic, the perfect space became available in the Halifax Brewery Market to design what is now a one-stop destination for athletes.

A COLLABORATIVE SETTING

Quantum is a collaborative setting though-and-through. As a multidisciplinary sport therapy clinic, they offer chiropractic services, naturopathy, physiotherapy, massage therapy, athletic therapy, and personal training. Having six different practitioner types under one roof provides an innovative approach to the planning and coordination of treatment, allowing clients to focus solely on recovery. 

KEEPING SAFETY IN MIND DURING COVID-19

Quantum opened during the pandemic with provincial guidelines in mind, meaning they have enough space to move in treatment rooms, hallways, and waiting areas. On top of this, the clinic is kept sanitary through diligent use of medical-grade cleaning supplies to ensure the safety of staff and clients.

A PATIENT-FOCUSED VISION

All of Quantum’s well-trained staff work under one collaborative vision – to create the best treatment plan for each client. They hope to expand the clinic to include designated areas for therapy, performance, and recovery, so they can provide athletes and active individuals services that encompass all necessities in one space.
