Physiotherapy

Forge Physiotherapy offers tried and true diagnostic and treatment techniques which aims to not only alleviate pain and disfunction but to find and treat the underlying root of the injury. Whether you’re looking to recover from a motor vehicle accident, bounce back from a sports injury, or fix nagging pains and aches to get back to doing what you love best, our expert physiotherapists are armed with the knowledge and expertise to help you lead a better life.

Our physiotherapists work with clients in a one-on-one setting in a private room. This means the physiotherapist is entirely focused on you, and is not moving back and forth between multiple patients. This allows for the highest level of care, attentiveness and communication during your sessions.

Forge Integrated Health uses the latest in electronic record-keeping on our clients to keep a constant and effective line of communication between our physiotherapists and kinesiologists.
