In September 2014 I had a workplace accident and in November 2014 I was in a car accident. The staff and therapist have provided exceptional service and have been very professional. The attention to detail is extraordinary with both the therapy and documentation to navigate the complexities associated with WSBC and ICBC reports. I continue to receive the best of care in a supportive and positive environment. I appreciate all you have done for me, thank you.

I appreciated the way you explained how the muscles worked and showed me them graphically on the computer screen. My back feels 100% better after following your explicit instructions. I religiously did the five things that you told me would help alleviate my lower back pain. The only thing I haven’t done is get a new dog but that is in the works.
