Your physiotherapist will ask questions to find out about you, what you're having difficulty with and what you want to work on. To book a consultation, call (902) 809-1793.

If you qualify for our services, we will book a time for your physiotherapist to come to your home and complete an initial assessment, which includes range of motion, strength, mobility and balance testing as well as blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen levels and equipment needs. After your initial visit, you would agree on a treatment plan. Most clients are seen 1-2 times/week initally.
