Brant Active Rehabilitation Centre - pt Health
In-person treatment available
"I had a knee replacement and chose Brant Active to do my physio. From the time I walked in I was greeted with a smile and a how are you from the staff manning the front desk. Their knowledge and concern while they worked on my knee speed my recovery time up tremendously. I would recommend Brant Active to anyone that needs help."
"Everyone was so kind and understanding here. I've only had physio once before but these guys were 1000x better than the others and much much kinder. I was happy with the wonderful receptionist, the space was very clean and open which I love, and my therapist was extremely cool and fun and we had a good laugh in between figuring out what was wrong with me.
