Living with chronic or persistent pain can be very challenging and both physically and mentally exhausting. Pain may persist following an initial injury, or may gradually start without an actual injury. Through our initial physiotherapy assessment, we will gather information about your pain history and current function to help determine what may be the source of your pain, and other contributing factors. You may find that our approach to managing persistent pain is quite different than treating an acute injury. The goal of managing persistent pain is to help reduce your pain, improve your daily function, reduce your pain flares, and empower you with the skills and tools to sustain the management of your pain.

We understand that your journey with pain may be long and we want to take the time to find out what works and what hasn’t worked for you. Together we will work to find tools and management strategies that work for you.

Our physiotherapeutic approach is evidence-based and includes graded exercise, pain neurophysiology education (i.e. helping you understand why you have persistent pain), and other patient-specific management tools.


Cardiovascular exercise is an important part of wellbeing but it can also help manage chronic pain. We will help find the right program for you and your needs.


Everyone’s pain experience is different and a personalized exercise program can help reduce pain and improve daily function.


A better understanding of pain science and the pain experience has been shown to improve outcomes. We will work together to understand your pain and create realistic expectations and strategies to manage pain.


We may include passive stretching, soft tissue massage, and joint mobilizations as part of your management plan. These interventions can help to improve function and work in concert with your specific home exercise plan.

Please note that we will see acute, subacute and chronic injuries (all injuries), for the purposes of rehabilitation. You do not need a referral for our physiotherapy services.
