Welcome message from site

Welcome to Active Recovery Physiotherapy & Hand Clinic! We look forward to welcoming you into our clinic for your placement!

We are located in Gateway Village near Uptown Mall in Victoria. We are a centrally located clinic with easy access to the clinic from both of the main highways into the city. There are also many amenities nearby (we are dangerously close to Starbucks, Whole Foods and Big Wheel Burger). We have ample parking right outside the clinic with designated bike racks in the complex as well.

We're excited to share all the wonderful things there are to learn about the upper extremity and hope you'll enjoy your educational experience with us!
