WHAT IS CLINICAL PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy aims to improve your quality of life. Whether you are recovering from a car accident, a recent post-operative surgery patient, or simply someone struggling with chronic pain, clinical physiotherapy can help restore physical function and prevent future injuries.
Our team of clinically trained physiotherapists can assess, diagnose, and treat injuries related to muscle, bone, ligament, joint, and nerve pain. Our treatments include manual therapy, IMS, concussion therapy, clinical Pilates, and more.

I attribute my personal physical success to Vancity Physio's knowledge, personality, and example. Not only did Vancity Physio help me to reach my personal physical goals, but they also empowered me with the knowledge of a healthier lifestyle which has allowed me to greatly surpass those goals.— Matt S.
I saw Ranko for my first physio visit. I am a dentist and experience tightness in my neck and shoulders a lot. Ranko did a thorough assessment and recommended the proper treatment best suited for my needs.
My body felt so relaxed and relieved after my visit with Ranko. He gave me suggestions on how I can best prevent further injuries due to my work. Since them I have noticed huge improvements in my range of motion and less discomfort in my head and shoulders.— Dr. Neda R.
I had the pleasure of being personal trained by Ranko Vukovic for a 4 month period prior to an event last year. I was introduced to another viewpoint of what "being in shape" actually is comprised of. He helped me be openminded to an assortment of different exercises/stretches and training material. I was pleased with the results within a short period of time and continue to utilize the tools and suggestions that were taught to me. If anyone is looking for a motivating trainer and overall great guy, I highly suggest him!— Mao W.
My Physiotherapist not only explained how to do the exercises, but also the benefits of doing them. I have greatly improved and I'm happy with my progress. I strongly recommend Vancity Physio.— Don K
