We are pleased to once again offer in person assessments and treatments at the clinic to both new and returning clients. Our commitment to your health has never been more top of mind. We have taken the following measures to limit risk and ensure a safe environment for both clients and staff:
Screening: Before entry staff & clients are assessed for symptoms and exposure history.
Physical Distancing: We will be restricting the total number of individuals in the clinic at one time. There will be no waiting room within the clinic.
Appropriate use of PPE: It is mandatory for all clients to wear a clean mask at all times while in the clinic. You may use a cloth mask. All staff will use masks.
Cleaning & Disinfecting: You will be asked to sanitize your hands before entering and upon leaving the clinic. After each patient visit, the treatment room will be cleaned and disinfected. Common areas will be cleaned and disinfected regularly during the day.
We will continue to adjust our measures and protocols as necessary. While this is a challenging time for all of us, remember that under every mask is a friendly familiar face who is there to help you recover and make your experience a positive one! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

A positive relationship with your physiotherapist is an important factor in your recovery. At the RA Centre Physiotherapy Clinic, your appointments, from your initial consultation to each follow-up treatment, will be one-on-one with your personal physiotherapist.

An essential aspect of effective treatment is education. Education regarding your pain, injury and how to best manage your specific problem is our top priority. We listen and take the time to encourage and empower you with the information you need to make the best possible recovery you can.
Exercise is medicine! Exercise is one of the best evidence-based interventions for pain and health in general. It is often the best way to help you feel better and improve your quality of life.
