Welcome message from site

At NeuroMotion Physiotherapy we have chosen to supervise and mentor physiotherapy students throughout the year. We chose to take on students because we believe it is important to be mentors to others, support the learning of future therapists, and this also keeps us current with new physiotherapy practices being taught in school. We feel that we learn just as much from our students as they learn from us.

Supporting students means that more physiotherapists are educated about the potential to work with individuals with neurological conditions. It allows students to positively impact the lives of those with such conditions. We enjoy collaborating with the other physiotherapists and the kinesiologist in the clinic. We are fortunate to have a Lokomat in our clinic, pulley weights, an exercise class, exercise equipment, and our passion for the neuro field!
