Frequently asked questions
I'm not sure if I should see you in the clinic or gym first. Which is best to start?
If you're unsure, it is best to start off in the clinic as it'll give us time to thoroughly go through your history, previous injuries and talk about a plan moving forward. The clinic offers privacy to go through a full assessment of your body from posture, joint range of motion, muscle strength to basic and fundamental movements.
What is the difference between seeing you in the clinic or the gym?
The clinic is a good starting point for your rehab journey so that we can establish what your needs and goals are along with giving me a full picture of what we need to work on. At the clinic I offer more traditional physiotherapy services such as education, manual therapy, manipulation, dry needling / IMS and body weight, low resistance exercises.
Do you offer all the same services at both locations?
No. At Gastown Physio I can't assess heavy loaded movements (but often the first step doesn't require this right away). I also don't have access to force plates or force frame to measure strength and ground reaction forces at this space. We offer direct billing for your extended insurance here.
