Strive to Move and Feel Better


Tailor Made Exercise And Treatment Plans To Get You Back To What You Love To Do.

Physiotherapists are university trained, primary health care professionals and are essential members of the Canadian healthcare team. Our role is not simply to rehabilitate following injury or disease, we promote an individuals’ health and wellbeing by decreasing pain, restoring mobility and improving function.  Physiotherapists are skilled in assessment, diagnosis and treatment of individuals, throughout their lifespan. From children, to women during childbearing years, to the elderly, the Physiotherapists at Strive are here for you. Your Physiotherapist will start with a thorough patient interview, to learn more about you, your condition, contributing factors and answer your questions. Following a careful examination, your Physiotherapy will create a customized plan to help you achieve your goals.

Strive Physiotherapists are up to date with the latest pain science research and how to use this to help you understand what you are feeling and why. Our Physiotherapists know that when pain science education is combined with an individualized exercise prescription, patients with pain are able to better manage their pain and meet their goals.


Strive Physiotherapists have the hands-on skills to complement this knowledge, which includes soft tissue release, massage, manual and manipulative therapy, mobilizations with movement, McKenzie method, acupuncture and dry needling.  and other modalities such as Extracorporal Shockwave Therapy. Our Physiotherapists use their extensive tool box to help you manage and resolve pain, enhance mobility and improve your ability to function at your best.
