Welcome message from site

We are a busy outpatient private clinic. As there is limited physiotherapy service in the North we tend to get a variety of patients from the surrounding areas with acute and chronic injuries, orthopedic issues, and neurological conditions, just to name a few. We use manual techniques, neurokinetic therapy, functional movement systems, acupuncture, taping and exercise therapy. As the owners, we have had been fortunate enough to work in England, Australia and Canada and in a variety of settings. We decided to move to Northern British Columbia to raise our family and improve the North with respects to its physiotherapy services.

Our new clinic houses six treatment rooms, for the use of five physios, an acupuncturist and a registered massage therapist. We also have a studio that has STOTT Pilates classes, all levels of yoga, as well as pre- and post-natal. FMS trainers work in our gym and we train all the sports teams. We also offer functional movement classes onsite.

Just because we are in the North does not mean we are not a cutting edge clinic! If you want to come and have some fun and learn a lot then DEEP physio is for you!

Patient population description:

The patient population varies greatly from children/youth to the elderly. Children/youth come to our clinic for injury prevention more so than a specific injury. We are qualified in the functional movement screen and screen the youth/sports teams and school teams for possible injuries. We work with the teams/schools in the community as well as the students coming to the clinic to train.

We have two orthopedic surgeons in our town and therefore follow up with most orthopedic issues.
