Dr. David Pow in IMPACT Magazine
Being active is a very important part of Dr. David Pow’s life — his passion really. For years, he has blended that passion with the field of sports medicine, helping keep his patients in the game. “My patients come in all different sizes and shapes and backgrounds. At THE Downtown Sports Clinics, not only do we look after high intensity athletes, but also weekend warriors, young kids, older people who have injured themselves through their activities,” says Dr. Pow, a family physician who has been affiliated with THE Downtown Sports Clinics since 1997.
Dr. Pow has more than 30 years of medical experience. He has a master’s degree in exercise physiology and worked as a fitness instructor for eight years, spawning his interest in sport medicine and musculoskeletal injuries. “It’s a fun and very rewarding career; and a really enjoyable part of my practice is seeing patients at THE Downtown Sports Clinics,” says Dr. Pow. “Activity is a very integral part of my life. I love to cycle, hike, downhill ski and workout 5-6 times a week doing spin classes, weight training, TRX and yoga. Our bodies are designed to move. My goal is keeping people young and healthy by helping them stay active and exercising.”
