The story of Comeback Center
During her long career in pro sports, Tanja Poutiainen, one of the founders of Comeback Center, learnt the importance of health to athletic performance. Health maintenance is important, but when an injury occurs, recovery and return to the peak capability requires solid planning and comprehensive rehabilitation.
A few years after finishing her pro sports career, Tanja started to ask questions: “Why isn’t there a clinic in Finland that offers comprehensive and intensive rehab? A place where a multidisciplinary team can build a personalized rehabilitation program for the patient under one roof?”
Comeback Center was born in the fall of 2018 in a meeting with Tanja, Kari, Pasi, Risto and Joni. Knowing each other from previous work-related matters, they went on to develop the idea of an intensive rehabilitation clinic. The main components were there! Physiotherapists and physicians are already working in Santasport, near Ounasvaara, under the aforementioned people. Santasport and the nature of Ounasvaara provide exclusive opportunities for exercise, rehabilitation and coaching – both indoors and outside.
