I have nothing but positive things to say about my experiences here. Paul is really kind and takes the time to know you on a personal level, which I think is so important if you are dealing with chronic pain that is difficult to deal with mentally and psychologically. He takes the time to genuinely understand what your concerns are and works with you to figure out the best treatment plans accordingly.
I spent a few months getting physio to treat some chronic and complicated issues. Then suddenly about half of the issues disappeared due to Paul’s effective treatment. My hip mobility issues are completely gone now and so are issues pertaining to imbalances between my legs and hips.
I have been suffering from lower back pain for a few years now from a car accident and I have been looking for a physiotherapist for a long time that could help treat not only that but my consistent aches and pains from jiu jitsu and weightlifting. When I met Shirley, I was amazed at how in depth she understood my body just from the initial treatment. She was able to provide me with the necessary methods whether it was dry needling, ART, etc that helped reduce my pain in a much more timely manner than my previous therapists. She went through in detail all the exercises that would help strengthen and rehab those areas. I dont think I’ve ever met a therapist that cared as much as she did about my well being.
On top of that, the rates were very fair for the service. It gives me more opportunity to come see her throughout the year, which is a life saver.
If you have anything that has been bothering your body, kits physiotherapy clinic is the place to go. You wont regret it.
As a physician, I highly recommend this clinic to my patients and to all my family and friends in need of physical therapy. The physiotherapists and team are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They provide excellent care and thoroughly consider their patients needs before implementing a course of treatment to make sure they have the best possible recovery. Some of the services they provide include, acupuncture, IMS/dry needling and hydrotherapy (physiotherapy in the water). One of the physiotherapists, Shirley, is very competent and caring toward all her patients. She always takes her time addressing the problem and providing the best possible care. I’ve sent several of my patients and family members to Shirley. Overall, the physiotherapists are great. You are in good hands when you go to this clinic.
I had a shooting nerve pain from my back to my ankle that would become inflamed, sporadically. Shirley Estey identified the origin, and recommended IMS treatments which she administered. She also offered suggestions on ongoing exercises to ensure there was no stress or re-injury to the area treated. I have never had the same issue. Highly recommended.
I have seen Gail on 2 separate occasions. First time was 2 years ago for my knee. I had seen multiple people and the injury was 6 years old and she was the only person that was able to help me! 2 years later and my knee is great and I no longer have any issues! I am currently seeing her post MVA and in a week my injuries are already much better. I have faith that I will be as good as new with her work, stretches and suggestions. The clinic is clean and organized. The staff are all great and friendly. I receive great treatments during my visits – manual therapy, heat, ice, tens, traction, etc. If you need to see someone to help you, I recommend Gail.
I saw Gail for neck pain. She really listened and found the root of the problem and gave me exercises to help prevent reoccurring pain in the future. Would definitely recommend!
Excellent staff who, over the years, have helped me recover from a wide variety of injuries and have given advice to prevent those (and other) injuries.
I suffered a neck injury in a car crash my step mother suggested that I do physiotherapy and recommended Kitsilano physio. I have been to several treatments – the service is great , the staff are very friendly and helpful. I give it a 10/10.
I have had a wonderful experience here in treating my chronic TMJ and resulting neck/shoulder pain. The physiotherapists take their time with patients, are friendly and professional, and highly knowledgeable, able to answer all my questions and provide excellent guidance in managing my injury. I have seen significant improvement and I have felt supported by the physiotherapist every step of the way. Highly recommended.
Gail Mattuck was recommended to myself and husband after a car accident in August. The treatments, exercises and advice we have received from Gail have been most beneficial to our healing. Gail is very knowledgeable, thorough and genuinely cares about our healing. We would not hesitate to recommend her or this clinic. The reception staff are very friendly, attentive and our appointments have always been on time.
I heard about Kitsilano Physio from a friend (and a client of the clinic) who raved about Shirley’s abilities to heal and put the body back together.
My friend was absolutely right. Shirley is an amazing physiotherapist; she helped me (through physical manipulations of the joint, acupuncture, and other physio-wizardry) get full mobility back after I dislocated my elbow. She also sent me home every week with daily exercises which helped me regain strength and flexibility quickly.
Aside from my happiness with my treatment, the staff are extremely professional, helpful, and friendly. The clinic itself is clean, bright, and tidy.
I have only great things to say about this clinic and have recommended it to at least ten people. The difficulty in getting an appointment is testament enough to the physios’ popularity.
I saw Shirley, She treated my pelvis dysfunction. She was wonderful, she helped me Get back to 100%.
