20 years helping athletes and active individuals achieve their sports and exercise goals.
Grand River Sports Medicine Centre (GRSM) was the culmination of years of planning for us, the founding owners – Gillian Lyttle, Michelle Bogias and Dr. Trevor Hall. We wanted to do something different, we wanted to practice sports medicine and sports therapy in our own way. So, we took the risk and made it happen by opening our own sports medicine clinic in June of 2002.
Over the past 20 years, we have pushed ourselves to continue to deliver the highest quality of care to our clients, while creating a challenging and enjoyable work environment for our staff. We have invested deeply in our community and developed strong relationships with schools, clubs, and sports teams. Our word-of-mouth referrals drive a high percentage of our clinical traffic flow. Having past and current clients refer so many of their friends and family to GRSM is humbling and gives us the motivation to continue to provide an excellent client experience to everyone who walks through our door.

Due to the pandemic, we closed our doors for a several months. While closed offering virtual appointments to still provide patients with care.
Over the course of the pandemic it became difficult to sustain the downtown Kitchener clinic. During 2021 we closed the clinic.
We presently have upwards of 50 employees and independent contractors, including 18 physiotherapists.
Today, we have seen over 585,000 patient visits
One of the GRSM values includes the dedication of our team to make valuable contributions as a Community Partner.
Together, with our colleagues and clients, we are helping to improve the quality of life and making a positive difference in the communities we serve. GRSM is well known for supporting minor sports associations and participating in charity events for local organizations.
