In good health,
"I worked with the physiotherapy team at Fairview for knee pain I was experiencing with running. I had a great experience with the whole team including the massage therapist and support staff. Friendly environment that allowed me to ask any question and was always provided with clear answers. I'm happy to say that I'm back to pain-free activity again!"
"All of the therapists are incredibly knowledgeable and have a great way of explaining how your body mechanics work so you can understand how to help relieve any discomfort you are having. I've had a lot of success and I would highly recommend anyone to go see this fantastic group of people to help with any musculoskeletal body issues you may have. "
