I've been referred to as "Every Woman's Wellness Power House" and have travelled the globe sharing my passion for positive thinking, health and fitness. I'm a World Figure Champion, Fitness Model and Mother of two. You may recognize my regular appearances in countless publications and from my Television clients such as Toyota, The Shopping Channel, The Outdoor Life Network, Star TV, TNT, Global TV and Second City. I have worked with several leading corporations and am now proud to be considered the “First Call Hosting Talent” of Canada! So needless to say I had no time for a rotator cuff injury !!!
In a panic, I found Filipe at Sports Therapy C.A.I.R.E. He was tremendously confident about the outcome and his warm, kind and understanding demeanour made me feel that I was unquestionably in good hands. Anytime an injury slows me down, Filipe is my first call !!!
Thank you have magic in your hands.

I am weekend warrior who suffered a serious knee injury in 2007. With the assistance of Filipe I was able to get back on the field within a year. Now whether I am playing Basketball, Hiking the escarpment or running down the field playing Ultimate Frisbee; Filipe always gets me back on track. Thank-you.

Thanks to Fil's continued care, I am able to train as hard and as often as I want. He is as much a part of my routine as the weight room and nutrition are.

I was the victim of a hit and run. The pain I felt daily was so bad that I could not sleep. I had lost much muscle mass in my legs and had to drop most of my favourite activities - in particular all outdoor winter activities. Filipe and Sports Therapy C.A.I.R.E.'s customized exercise plan combined with massage therapy got me back on track. It enabled me to finally have a pain-free sleep. It increased my strength giving me the ability to enjoy Canadian winters again. See you on the slopes! Thank you Filipe!

Sports Therapy C.A.I.R.E. helps me recover from both sports injuries and my everyday aches and pains. Filipe is able to speed up my recovery time with his specialized treatment while providing me with various rehab exercises. Filipe always makes an extra effort to accommodate my schedule and gets me ready for my next curling game. I would recommend Sports Therapy C.A.I.R.E. to my friends and family and to all who enjoy an active lifestyle.

My goal is to lead an active lifestyle both physically and mentally until my golden years. Incorporating Filipe’s Athletic Therapy treatment from Sports Therapy C.A.I.R.E. is part of my maintenance to prevent future injuries. Triathlon racing is not just about finishing first. It’s about pushing myself to finish strong yet when I finish in the top ten it’s always a bonus.

Filipe has always provided me with quality care. He is quick to diagnose my injury and confidently offers me therapeutic relief. Through all of my Soccer injuries, Filipe not only helped me regain muscle strength, he encouraged me to complete my rehab program and get back to playing the game.

-Jonathan Costa


Filipe understands how important running is to runners. He kept me active through many injuries with a modified training schedule and effective physical therapy. Filipe kept the lines of communication open to understand where pain was felt, proper nutrition and ways to tweak a new regimen. I can't say enough positive things about him and how he kept me training for my next marathon.

I have played club soccer with the Woodbridge Strikers and with the University of Ryerson men's soccer team. I have received therapy from Britannia Sports Therapy C.A.I.R.E. for about three years now, and have found that their methodology and assessment and treatment benefit me greatly. Filipe offers attentive therapist-to-patient service which differs from other sport therapy clinics that employ volume based treatment. Filipe takes his time to explain the nature of my injury and more importantly, implements my rehab plan to strengthen and avoid future injuries. The staff at Sports Therapy C.A.I.R.E. are friendly and create a relaxed atmosphere which is key to any athlete on the road to recovery.
