"I damaged my shoulder at work, and I was able to get an appointment here within 3 hours of me calling in. The physiotherapist [and PSP] were fantastic at evaluating & explaining what was happening and what my future appointments would look like. Highly recommend this studio!"
"My experience was the best I have had with a physio clinic. I hurt my shoulder, thought it was nothing but ended up being an AC joint sprain...takes two months to heal with no exercising allowed. Would have never known this unless my physiotherapist had told me and explained the injury in full detail."
