Personalized care in a SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY.

Physio done the RIGHT WAY

Our team of physiotherapists and massage therapists work closely with you, and each other to understand your goals to create an evidence based game plan. We strive to make the overall experience of rehabilitation, movement and exercise enjoyable. Learn more about our approach through our physiotherapy blog.

A BARBERSHOP VIBE and WELCOMING CLINIC

We make sure every patient is welcomed and attended to at our physiotherapy clinic. We have an open concept space located on Commercial Drive, and only work with a handful of patients at a time. We truly believe that facilitates teamwork amongst our practitioners but also a community vibe at our clinic.

PERSONALIZED and FLEXIBLE Treatment

Every patient is provided a personalized game plan around your goals or injuries. At the start of your rehab plan, you may need longer 60 minute sessions. As you get better, you might only need 10 minute check-ins via telehealth. Whatever provides the best care and makes sense for you, our physiotherapy and RMT team has you covered.

Virtual Treatment (Physio and More)

Kinesiology / Athletic Therapy / Active Rehab, and Physiotherapy services are available virtually! Naturally, we need to take an indirect approach, so you can expect:

I broke my dominant hand at the beginning of June which made every day tasks as well as a number of my favorite outdoor activities extremely challenging. Post-surgery I was referred by a friend to see Trevor Potts at the Physio Shop on Commercial and I’m so grateful for that referral!

Trevor was awesome, answered all of my questions and listened closely to my goals in order to provide the best line of care in order to put me in the best position to reach them. I had my last appointment today (got the all clear!) and ultimately experienced a WAY quicker recovery than expected. Thank you Trevor for your support, encouragement and enthusiasm! My hand and I are very grateful
