Gym Facility


Exercise is the most well supported Physiotherapy intervention available!  Additionally, what better way to assess pain and dysfunction during movement and exercise than by truly assessing your movement and exercise.  Whether that means a sit to stand, running, double unders, deadlifts or snatch – we can assess that!  We are thrilled to have access to CrossFit Leduc’s amazing facility – everything we need to help you in every stage of physical rehabilitation and performance.
