Registered Physiotherapist and Owner
William Bateman owns and operates ProjectPhysio.com, a clinic and website designed to help his clients recover from injury, prevent injury, and overcome performance plateaus.

He places an emphasis on active recovery, self-directed pain management strategies, pain neuroscience, and graded exercise programs to help his clients reach their goals.
Will is responsible for developing and managing the Ground Up Performance Team, bringing together healthcare providers, climbing coaches, strength and conditioning specialists, and exercise physiologists to provide climbers with sport-specific services. His team is constantly re-evaluating the best tools for measuring performance and preventing injury in climbers. He currently oversees athlete monitoring and injury prevention for the Ground Up Youth Competitive Climbing Team and the Quest University Climbing Team. Will has developed numerous injury prevention programs for climbers, skiers, snowboarders, runners, and swimmers, and has spoken about the topic throughout Canada and the USA. He also runs chronic pain education workshops to help demystify the complexities of pain.
Will is a mentor with the Canadian Physiotherapy Association - Pain Science Division for clinicians looking to learn the latest in pain neurophysiology and its application to rehabilitative sciences
