What Makes us Different
There is a missing link in the treatment and training of athletes. We have available the integration of sports medicine, human performance and next generation biohacking.
Biohacking is the process of using science and technology to modify or change the body’s physiology and chemistry to optimize health and performance. PAPC Biohacking is uniquely focused on cognition and the brain, and is inspired by Rowan’s Law.
Women in Sports
We strive to be equally specific to women in sport and their needs. At the PAPC, not only are the programs of care and training designed for each sport but equal emphasis is made to determine the right parameters for all athletes.
Rowan’s Law is legislation passed by the Government of Ontario in 2018 in memory of Rowan Stringer. Rowan was a rugby player who tragically passed away in 2013 as a result of Second Impact Syndrome – suffering multiple concussions playing Rugby three times in six days. The goal of this legislation is to create a safer environment for children, youth and amateur athletes while participating in sport.
Rowan’s Law puts concussion safety information into the hands of people who need it most, including athletes, trainers, coaches, officials, educators and parents. Knowing how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion can save lives. Increased awareness and outcome based strategies at home, in school, in healthcare, and in sport will result in significant change in the way concussions are managed, ensuring a safer return to play and healthier athletes.

“From a young age, kids/athletes have and continue to be trained in away that is not specific to their personal success and athletic development. I have had the experience, over the years, training in a way that I thought was ‘right’, not paying attention to my body, my needs and what is really going to excel my development as an athlete, and more importantly prevent injury and extend longevity. Dealing with constant injuries, needing medical support as well as invasive surgery took a tole on the way I was able to perform I wasn’t able to take advantage of this and I want others to be able to. My goal (and part of our vision here at PAPC), is to help change the way we think about training, and provide our athletes and clients with the programs, tools and knowledge to help them excel in their field/sport/life, not just to perform at a higher level, but to do it for a longer period of time and overall live a healthier life.”
