At Freedom Physio and Pilates we understand that pain can affect you in many different ways: from your family life, to your social life, to your independence, exercise routine, and mobility. We know how difficult it is to live a life filled with pain and daily discomfort. That’s why we strive to give our patient’s the lives they truly want: ones filled with activity, independence, mobility, and best of all… ones WITHOUT PAIN.

For us, physiotherapy is about a lot more than a visit to a healthcare professional – we know that knee, back, and neck pain can turn everyday activities into a living nightmare. At our clinic we want you to understand that your health is about more than a tablet or a diagnosis. For us, your journey to health is about hands-on treatment from professional, caring, friendly physiotherapists; it’s about stretches tailor-made for you; it’s about giving you your smile back. And it’s about MAINTAINING a life free from pain.

We understand that it may seem easy to reach for painkillers, but we also want you to know that there is a better, much safer, much more effective way. Painkillers and surgery, even visits to your doctor, DO NOT need to define who you are. We know that movement promotes healing, and we understand that physiotherapy is the key to giving you your life back.

And yet, we are understanding of the fact that you may have experienced physiotherapy in the past but were left feeling disappointed or confused about the process. Healthy skepticism is something we admire, and we encourage you to reach out to us so that your fears can be quelled and your questions can be answered. Our clinic isn’t like the clinics you’ve been to in the past… we care. We want you to know that your health is the cornerstone of what our practice is built on, and your mobility and pain free life is a true sign of our commitment to you.

Have a look at the points below to see if YOU could benefit from seeing one of our professional physiotherapists.

Physiotherapy is the Right Step For You if:

  • You have waited for days, weeks, or months for your pain to disappear on its own, but it hasn’t.
  • You’ve been in and out of doctors’ offices, yet nothing is getting better and the bills are just piling up.
  • Out of desperation you have turned to painkillers to stop the pain, but STILL nothing is getting better and the dosages are increasing alongside the pain.
  • YouTube and Google have proved to be pathetic partners on your journey to health, and you feel that you’ve actually descended further into pain because of them.
  • Family members have told you it’s an “age thing” and that everyone gets it. That’s not true, and you do not have to endure this pain.
  • Resting has been your best friend… yet you’re not socializing, you’re spending less time with family, and you’re no longer doing your daily activities. And despite all that, you’re STILL in pain; in fact, it’s getting worse!

Do these scenarios sound familiar?
