Our Approach to Physiotherapy
We provide one-on-one individualized care, tailored to meet your needs.
- Your first visit with us includes an assessment, where we take a thorough history of your main concerns, observe your movements and perform a hands-on assessment.
- From the assessment, together, we create a treatment plan to help you meet your goals. The goal is for you to return to your activities of daily living, improve your mobility, function or performance. Our follow-up sessions vary in length.
- Our treatments are multimodal, including manual therapy, prescribed exercise therapy and modalities.
As physiotherapists, we are considered exercise specialists trained in understanding the physical requirements of daily life, specific to individuals. Often, performing specific exercises will allow your injury to heal properly, and bridge the gap between recovery and optimal performance.
With the use of our hands, we perform very specific movements of your joints and soft tissues to restore or enhance normal movement, while eliciting your body’s natural pain relieving mechanisms. We are trained by the highest skilled clinicians in the world, through the Orthopedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.

“In Ontario, regulated health professions are governed under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA)and health profession Acts (i.e., Medicine Act, 1991). This legislative framework establishes health regulatory colleges, which regulate the professions in the public interest. Health regulatory colleges are responsible for ensuring that regulated health professionals provide health services in a safe, professional and ethical manner. This includes, among other things, setting standards of practice for the profession and investigating complaints about members of the profession and, where appropriate, disciplining them” (Ontario Ministry of Health and long-term care).
