If you want to learn more about us, you’re in the right place. Read on and learn how we grew to become one of London’s most trusted health care teams.
Should a clinic even have a story…? Well, ours does!
It all began with Dr. Nicole Thornicroft and a little health care clinic right here in London, Ontario. You see, Dr. Thornicroft has never been like so many of her colleagues. Brilliant – yes; caring – of course; ambitious – absolutely. But still, something about her take on health care always felt different. It took a few years of practice, some insight and experience, and even a few ‘aha’ moments along the way, but while working alongside patients, Dr. Thornicroft came to realize that the happiness of her patients as well as her own had as much or more to do with the trust and connection she built than it was about the treatment techniques she used.
And that was the moment Dr. Thornicroft set out on her own and founded Pro Function.
Things weren’t easy in the beginning; good things never are. Dr. Thornicroft knew she wanted to continue practicing but this time with a focus on her style of treatment – Personalized, Approachable and Professional. First, the question was where?
Being born and raised in the suburb of Lambeth, Ontario meant a location near south London would be ideal, since it would help her work with the community she loved and still lives in today. But then was the question of how? This hurdle was more difficult. Dr. Thornicroft worked with a variety of patients from differing backgrounds; downtown city workers, teachers, young children, farmers.They all needed a place to go, and a common thread to connect them. Slowly but surely the picture came into focus – Sports!
Dr. Thornicroft knew that sports was a big part of most people’s lives, whether personally or professionally. It could be through organized team sports, going to the local cross fit gym, playing with grandchildren on weekends, or being part of a fundraising marathon; sports and being active had its place for many. Dr. Thornicroft didn’t waste a moment and she quickly forged an agreement with the largest indoor training facility in all of London, Ontario; Centrefield Sports Inc.
Centrefield Sports Inc. is an impressive 35,000 sq. ft. indoor training facility for everything from minor to elite sports, and this would be where Pro Function would open its doors in 2011. Quickly growing to become an integral part of the local sports, industrial and small business community, Pro Function’s down-to-earth, 1-on-1, modern approach to chiropractic and physiotherapy treatment became the standard for exceptional care.
