Conditions We Treat
At Fairvale Physiotherapy, our team has extensive experience and training in treating a variety of different conditions.
Personalized Treatment Plan: The First Step to Your Recovery
Our first goal is to reduce the symptoms you’re feeling right now as quickly as possible. We assess and develop a personalized treatment program through means including, but not limited to, advanced exercise prescriptions, manual therapy, and various modalities.
Evaluating Your Condition
To come up with your treatment program, a therapist will gather key information about your condition. Your answers along with the results of an expert examination will guide us in creating a specific type of treatment program to effectively address your specific condition and eventually, to facilitate your healing.
Adjustments to the program are implemented based on your actual progress, or response, to the treatment until your goals are achieved. We pay close attention to your progress. You will receive verbal instruction and hands-on guidance to improve your condition.
Understanding Your Condition and Implementing Prevention Strategies
A clear understanding of your condition will not only alleviate your concerns, but can also help you understand your condition, to look for and change factors that may be causing your symptoms, and to help you learn how to avoid future problems.
Our therapists may provide tips, specific stretches, and exercises to do at work, or during activities. We recommend changes to help you do your job with less strain and less chance of injury.
As you recover, you will gradually advance in a series of strengthening exercises for the muscles surrounding the affected area which helps patients begin moving easier and lessens the chances of future pain and problems.

Steve Gillis - Chiropractor
Simply put, I was a skeptic…
After being misdiagnosed with arthritis at age 17, and told to stop exercising, I decided to try a chiropractor as a “last resort”. After becoming pain-free after eight treatments, I started to think “maybe there is something to all of this…”
After graduating from UNBSJ with a bachelor of science degree in 1990, Dr. Stephen Gillis attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. After graduating in 1997 Dr. Gillis returned to the Saint John area to establish his practice, including chiropractic manipulation, laser, shockwave, acupuncture and orthotics.“We love skeptics,” smiles Dr. Gillis. “I still remember the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to address any concerns. Patients appreciate that.” Dr. Gillis is now pleased to offer appointment times at the Fairvale Physiotherapy location.
