An animal lover, philanthropist, and photographer, Chelsea is the social media coordinator for the clinic.

She is also the voice you hear at the other end of the phone when you call us, as she is also the full time office administrator. Recovering from multiple concussions and coping with the resulting PCS, Chelsea is no stranger to physiotherapy and massage, and is looking forward to helping and supporting you along your road to recovery.

Where to start. Tyler is always putting patients first and doesn't just throw a ice pack on it and call it done. He is genuinely interested in getting to know his patients and making sure he has a full picture and all the facts before finding the right treatment plan for them. He is realistic in his timelines and makes sure the client has or learns the tools before moving forward to start treatment. He replies to emails after hours and tries to incorporate humor and positivity whenever possible. Keep it up Tyler. 👍 Chelsea makes booking a breeze and always greets ya with a smile and makes your day better!😁
