Welcome message from site

At Live Well Physiotherapy, it is our fundamental belief that optimal results are achieved through quality one-on-one care. This belief is reflected in all areas of our practice from booking longer treatment sessions, to comprehensive assessments and effective, hands-on treatments, as well as providing individualized exercise plans to meet the needs of each individual.

We value our team, and take care to foster a collaborative approach. We will do our best to bring you into our team while you are with us. The best learning opportunities go both ways. We look forward to learning from you, as you learn from us!

And we hope you make the most of the Shuswap while you are here. It's a great place to be! Winter wonderland and ski days soon melt to summer sun and time on the lake - there are year-round outdoor activities to experience!
