‘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.
