Welcome message from site

Hello! We are all physiotherapists who love our profession and would like to share the expertise and knowledge with you. We work with children and their families for short times, longer times, or sometimes from birth until they are graduated. These children might need a lot of therapy, other children could have more equipment needs, or both. Children may have neurological or orthopedic problems. Working with children means a lot of "out of the box thinking" in order to make things work, and that is also very exciting. When we see a child, we sometimes just meet the family, but sometimes there are several teams involved to help the child discover the world through movement.

Kamloops is a great community, with lots of room for activities like: cross-country and downhill skiing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming and much more as we have many lakes. Sun Peaks is less than an hour away. We have many restaurants, some theaters and Thompson River University is right across the street from us!
