Our DIFFERENCE IS OUR Treatment Philosophy

Our highly skilled and experienced team is committed to keeping you moving! The RA Centre Physiotherapy Clinic offers both physiotherapy and massage therapy treatments by Registered Physiotherapists and Massage Therapists for both RA members and non-members. Our physiotherapy treatments are primarily exercise focused but may also include: manual therapy, electrotherapeutic modalities and acupuncture.  We have longer appointment times with 60 minute initial consults and 30 minute follow-ups as standard. Our therapists are committed to keeping current with the most up-to-date research in order to provide an evidence based practise treatment approach.  


Our Treatment Philosophy

At the RA Centre Physiotherapy Clinic, we focus on finding the source and  cause of your problem, we don't just treat your symptoms. Our philosophy is to keep you moving and never completely stop exercising. We will show you how to keep moving safely, tailoring your treatments to your functional needs.  Our physiotherapists work with you, hands-on, from the acute stage right through to the end stage rehabilitation phase, using the latest rehab exercises with expert instruction and program planning for long term results. You will not receive treatment from assistants.

One-on-one Treatments

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. You will not be treated by assistants.

Patient Education

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. Physiotherapists are experts in assessing and optimizing movement using both mobility and strengthening exercises. The aim of physiotherapy is to provide you with the tools and knowledge to achieve your goals, move better, and lead a strong, happy and healthy life.


Private Treatment Rooms

Privacy and confidentiality are important when dealing with your health and wellbeing. At the RA Centre Physiotherapy Clinic, you will be cared for in one of our private treatment rooms. All of our rooms are private in order to offer a confidential and quiet space for assessment and treatment.

Hands-On Care

Manual therapy is a specialized form of treatment comprised of various hands-on techniques which take the form of soft tissue work, moving joints, and stretching.
