I have nothing but amazing things to say about this clinic. They helped me through one of my most stubborn injuries to my leg for 2.5 months. My physiotherapist Tyler Allen was extremely knowledgeable in my treatments and offered me real and genuine advice on my body as well as treatments for my injuries. Every session with Tyler was pleasant as he is a very personable guy who chatted with me about my life and hobbies during sessions. After every session with Tyler I left feeling more educated about my body and my injury. The receptionists working there were also amazing as they were very kind and welcoming and also greeted me on a first name basis. The clinic was very well kept and clean and I never had a problem with scheduling appointments.

I highly recommend this clinic


Amanda at Strive Physiotherapy was very helpful in listening to my injury and providing the proper advice and exercises to help me improve and strengthen that area. In the end I believe I finished stronger in my hip than I had been before the injury and I’m grateful for their help. I would definitely recommend!



Mike is a fantastic physiotherapist. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars! He is an expert at diagnosing your problem and putting together an action plan to treat it. The exercises he assigns are straight-forward and effective. He also explains everything in a clear and effective manner. Three of my family members (myself included) have been his patients over the past couple of years, and we have all had excellent experiences. I would recommend him — and Strive Physiotherapy in general — to anyone! The whole team at Strive Physiotherapy is exceptional.
