Brad provides a range of services to athletes from all over the world – from physical rehabilitation to strength and conditioning coaching for high performance athletes. He’s worked with athletes from all over – including the Swedish Women’s Hockey Team – and provides services both in person and through Skype. All you have to do is chat with Brad and you quickly come to realize how knowledgeable he is about all aspects of sport conditioning. The couple of times we’ve chatted in depth – I’ve come away with lots of food for thought with respect to my own progress and potential.
If you’re recovering from an injury, have niggling issues or just want to get some advice or help on how you can improve your performance, check out his website: http://bradvaillancourt.wix.com/competeatyourbest.
To add more flavour to the post (and so I didn’t get the details of what he does wrong) - I decided to make this an interview. I asked Brad a series of questions about what he does, why he does it – and more specifically about what he was doing during my treatment, and what tips he could offer to people training for a marathon or other endurance event.
So without further adieu…say hello to Brad!

- PIMST (Poliquin Instant Muscle Stimulation Technique) – is an excellent way to help athletes become faster, stronger, and more flexible…in 10 seconds! I used this to blow away the 2010 Swedish Olympic Hockey Team by increasing their standing long jump distance by 7 inches!
- Total Body Balancing – This technique was developed by Canadian Osteopath Dr. Kerry D’Ambrogio. It’s a special method of gently realigning the fascia tissue that, over time, twists and bunches. This creates a loss of range of motion, early fatigue, and pain. I compare this to wearing jeans that have been bunched and twisted from sitting for long periods of time. In minutes, an athlete can regain true form and increased energy capacity.
- Biosignature Modulation – This method was developed by Charles Poliquin. It is used to determine hormonal imbalances, and the best method(s) to regain balance for a leaner, healthier body.
- Electromagnetic Pulsing – Another Canadian invention. Using the magnetic pulses from the wand, fragile muscle fibres that have difficulty staying attached, form stronger bonds to allow faster healing to occur.
- Strength & Conditioning – Utilizing cutting edge science, athletes develop the best when paying attention to the intricacies of training design and periodization.
- BodyTalk – This was developed by two Australian doctors over 35 years ago. BodyTalk is used to help athletes break old pathologies that stop them from accomplishing their goal(s), allow them to recover faster, and help them perform better at times they usually find difficult to focus (or stay in the “zone”)
