Experienced Physiotherapy solutions for your aches, pains and rehab needs.
Derek the Physio will assess you using detailed history-taking and specific physical tests and measures, such as flexibility or range of motion. He will then interpret the assessment findings and use clinical reasoning to establish a diagnosis. Together, you will explore your current abilities and functional needs so treatments that are consistent with your goals and general health can be planned. Derek will guide you through the process while incorporating approaches and techniques supported by the best evidence available.
Alleviate pain, correct your foot function, and stay active because your foot health and mobility are essential. Our orthotic assessment process starts by understanding your lifestyle. Next, we use a biomechanical assessment gait analysis to better understand how the mechanics in your feet are affecting the alignment in your legs and the rest of your body.

Derek has been my physiotherapist for several years and he is honestly incredible. I have many issues in multiple areas of my back, kneed and feet and he intuitively understands how they are all connected and each treatment positively effects all the areas.
I have found his continuous interest in new techniques and excercises very educational and love that I can see him only once or twice for a serious issue and feel better sometimes even right away.
I highly recommend Derek!
