I have been diagnosed with Parkinson's but don't have any "major issues" yet do I need to see a Physio?
If you want to optimize your function both now and for the future then YES. When it comes to Parkinson's the earlier you are assessed and set up with a treatment plan, we know from the research that the effects of proper exercise and treatment are more effective the earlier you begin.
Do you do home visits?
The majority of our treatments take place at our clinic location on Fraser and 28th, we do see a few clients in there homes however there is a waitlist for this service and the times and days available are quite limited. To inquire about home visits please contact us and we will be happy to answer any questions.
