How Can We Help You?
What’s the Cause?
Sometimes it can be frustrating for people to figure out where their pain is coming from. Our physiotherapists take the time to work with you to help determine what is causing your problem, and we provide you with lots of education so that you understand the “how” and the “why” behind your painful symptoms. We believe that if you understand what is causing your symptoms, you will be better able to take charge of your recovery!
Manage your Pain
We can help you! Our physiotherapists will guide you on the road to recovery by teaching you how to take charge of your pain and become physically active again. We take the time to educate you so you understand what you are doing that might be contributing to your pain, and showing you which exercises will help you overcome your physical challenges. Relieving your symptoms and returning to “feeling good” is as important to us as it is to you!
Reach Your Goals
Whether it is returning to your favourite activity or hobby, or being able to work and live your life the way you would like, we will help you reach your goals. As physiotherapists, we help you restore your physical health in three important ways:
- determining the cause of your pain,
- using our skills to relieve your pain, and
- teaching you the exercises to remain pain-free and help prevent your problem from returning!
Your success is our reward!
“Ten years ago I was in desperate need for a physio. Having suffered the second disc rupture in my back in as many years, I was living with some debilitating pain and was looking down the barrel of back surgery to try and provide some relief. Over the years I had been to countless physios but had yet to find one that could help until I called Grand River Physio. From my very first call to my first appt with Mark Stonehouse I knew I was in good hands. Mark reviewed my MRI and assured me that, while surgery was needed, he could provide the support I needed to get me back on track and back to the active person I was before this all happened. It worked! For the last 10 years I have been a client at Grand River Physio where Mark not only helped me through the acute phase of my surgery, but has continued to keep me in fighting form since then. I am more active than ever and most definitely stronger than I have ever been and a great deal of credit goes to the treatment Mark has given me over the years. From the front desk staff to all of the physios who work at Grand River Physio, it truly is a welcoming place where you know you will receive incredible care that will have you back on your feet in no time at all.”
"Everyone at Grand River Physio was super friendly, professional, and accommodating. My therapist Remy was absolutely awesome. Her positive energy, skills and knowledge put me to rights. It can be a long road to recovery but with the right people in place, you're sure to succeed! Thank you!!"
“I have been receiving care from Karina. Karina is a wonderful, caring professional with a calm demeanour who has helped me a lot. The whole staff is friendly and the office has a positive atmosphere. I would highly recommend Grand River Physiotherapy for all your physiotherapy needs.”
“I chose to see Hilary after recommendations from two friends who are both athletes. I had a range of motion issue that was causing me pain and no other therapist was able to isolate the issue. After a few appointments with Hilary, she identified the problem and got to work on resolving it. When I later blew my knee out, Grand River Physiotherapy was my first call. The friendly and helpful staff got me in ASAP so I could get to work on both pre-surgical therapy and later post-surgery exercises. I’m so very thankful to have such a high quality clinic locally.”
“Stacy's expertise in pelvic floor physio clearly comes through in her work. I saw significant improvement almost immediately, and just a few weeks later my pain was nearly gone. She helped me to understand some of the underlying causes and what I could do to keep the pain away moving forward. After years of struggling with no clear diagnosis, I cannot believe the progress I have made with Stacy in a relatively short time.”
"Hello Centre Wellington! Anyone in need of physiotherapy should definitely contact Grand River Physiotherapy. During this Covid-19 pandemic their office has adapted very well. Every treatment is done safely, their office and treatment areas are kept clean and their staff are pleasant to deal with. My therapy with Tyler has been a revelation since my auto collision back in September of 2020. In-clinic therapy combined with at-home homework exercises have made recovery faster and more fruitful."
“I am 76 years old. For years, I suffered from painful burning feet. I didn’t want to walk anymore because it was too painful, and I love to walk! A specialist told me I had neuropathy, but offered no information about treatment. My family doctor prescribed two powerful drugs intended for nerve pain, which helped for awhile, but the side effects were terrible.
Then, while getting treatment for another injury, I told Hilary about my painful feet. She asked if I would agree to an assessment to see if the condition could be treated. By manipulating my legs and feet, she demonstrated that the pain could be greatly reduced. She said, 'This is treatable.'
She gave me special exercises that, with the help of my husband, have greatly reduced the pain in my feet. I am now able to go for long walks without too much discomfort. My quality of life is much better thanks to Hilary’s treatment and gentle support.”
"I've been going to Grand River Physio for a couple of years. I have had three tears in my rotator cuff that required surgery. With Remy's professionalism, cheerful and friendly service, I am on the mend. I would recommend GRP to anyone. All staff are friendly and very accommodating."
“I have been coming to Grand River Physiotherapy for quite some time. Having two knee replacements, Karina has been a Godsend keeping me mobile and helping me so much with the recovery process. Grand River Physiotherapy has always been so welcoming and helpful from the front desk to all the physiotherapists. I highly recommend Grand River Physiotherapy for anyone requiring physiotherapy treatment.”
“I am writing to express my sincere appreciation for the efforts of Mark Stonehouse, who diagnosed and treated a rare and difficult injury that I sustained late last spring. The initial diagnosis proved accurate and he was able to isolate the specific nerve and muscle activation issues that were compromised as a result of the injury. I was quickly prescribed a set of stretches and exercises to address my range of motion issues and included electrical stimulation to engage the dormant muscles during my treatments. Mark carried on with a series of acupuncture methods and continually adjusted the stretches and exercises to align with the healing progress, which has been steady and measurable. Once diagnosed, I researched my specific injury and I am very happy to say that I have progressed at an impressive rate when compared to the documented expectations that I found on-line. Thank you for providing a very caring and professional experience and for providing an effective path to healing.”
“Grand River Physiotherapy has helped me through a number of injuries and a surgery over the years. They are the reason I am still mobile, active and pain-free.”
