One of the things we love most about Sayulita is how active our community is. With an active lifestyle, such as playing sports, (surfing or paddle boarding), or exploring and adventuring in the outdoors, this can bring the risk of injury or pain, and also the desire to maintain your fitness. Whether you need help recovering from an injury, you suffer from chronic pain, you want to improve or gain muscle mass, or you’re an athlete who wants to keep up your physical conditioning, Sarathiel from WAVES Physiotherapy & Sports Science in Sayulita is here to help you!
Hi Sarathiel! First can you give readers a brief background about yourself?
I’ll be glad to! My name is Sarathiel; I’m a 36 years old, young, easy-going man, and a passionate person for health and sports-- areas where I’ve invested almost 17 years of my professional life now. I graduated as a Physiotherapist from Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara back in 2008, and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Science from Universidad del Valle del Fuerte in 2006. I’m a person of values that believes in the power of dreams and the human spirit, that pushes us all to make our dreams come true. I think that’s part of what has been bringing me here to Sayulita for the past 12 years now, sometimes for a few days, and some other times for a few months, until January of this year 2020, when I was finally able to stay in Sayulita and started WAVES Physiotherapy & Sports Science so I could professionally share what I love with this beautiful and active community.
What types of services does WAVES offer for pain relief/rehabilitation, etc.?
As qualified physiotherapists and sports scientists, at WAVES we develop and apply physical rehabilitation plans, sports training and health conditioning programs, which can be targeted for a wide variety of purposes, such as pain relief, specific injury recovery, after-surgery rehabilitation, specific fitness goals, like weight loss, muscle development, or general health improvement. All of this is supported by physical means, such as electrostimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, laser application (LLLT), paraffin, deep and superficial heat, and kinesiotaping, among others. In addition to the use of manual techniques, we offer specific physical tests and applied technology for the correct evaluation and development of physical body capacities, such as strength, endurance, speed, flexibility, agility, balance, coordination, and many more. You can also find the orthopedic items you may need to take proper care of a current injury-recovery process.
