Video analysis is a tool that Dr. Porr uses heavily within his clinical practice. Throwing athletes, runners, golfers, Olympic lifters and many other athletes perform movements that are too fast and complex to analize with the naked eye. Video analysis allows Dr. Porr to break these movements down and provide his patients with the information they need to improve their performances and avoid or treat any injuries they may develop.

Dr. Porr is a strongly believes that movement is essential in the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries, and advocates active participation in the rehabilitation process for all of his patients. He also will be directing the concussion management program at Orillia Sports Medicine.
