Tori West

I grew up living and breathing sports and this passion has continued into my life as a physiotherapist. A huge portion of my career has been spent working with athletes from the weekend warrior to Olympic athletes.

Although the underlying theme of Expansive Health is bringing together various areas of interest and expertise to help people who are really struggling with their health to improve their day to day function, my other passion involves helping athletes achieve their ultimate goals.

It may seem as though these are two vastly different population groups but many of the principles are the same.

Attacking health, function, strength, and mobility from an individual and specific perspective are vital for improvement regardless of the starting point and the ultimate goals of that individual.
