Action Sport Physio is a franchise of physiotherapy and sports medicine clinics that was founded in 1987. Action Sport Physio clinics are located within the province of Quebec, with numerous clinics located in the Greater Montreal area, the West Island, the Laurentians, the North Shore, the South Shore, the Suroît, the Eastern Townships and Laval. Their clinics not only offer physiotherapy, but also have associations with many specialized doctors and generalists, osteopaths, sports massage therapists as well as a wide array of complementary services.
Action Sport Physio is currently celebrating their 30th anniversary. On April 3, 2017, I interviewed Alain Scheldeman, the franchisor of Action Sport Physio, to find out how the franchise began and how it has evolved over the years. Alain Scheldeman is also the Chief Executive Officer of Action Sport Medicine International, as well as the Vice-President of Public Relations. He is one of the three founders of the Action Sport Physio network, along with Urbano Ciccarelli and Patrick Handfield.
