Our Philosophy and Core Beliefs
Our philosophy and core beliefs are the cornerstone to providing exceptional care and treatment for our patients that includes:
- Treating our patients, regardless of their age, medical condition, values, beliefs, etc., with the respect and dignity they deserve. We listen to our patients’ preferences and encourage them to aid in making decisions regarding their care and treatment. We are open to collaboration with their primary care physicians, as well as other healthcare professionals.
- Developing a personalized physiotherapist and patient relationship that is centered on the patient’s needs and objectives. We listen to our patients’ concerns, needs, and openly communicate with them by educating them about their condition while showing empathy to their situation and constantly building trust.
- Continuously obtaining ongoing education, training, certifications, and conducting ongoing research to provide our patients with the most current knowledge about various medical conditions to provide the best treatment options.
- Recognizing that each of our patients is unique. As such, we develop individualized and customized treatment programs based on each patient’s specific needs and objectives. While we understand certain medical conditions can have similar approaches, we know that what works for one patient does not always work for another, so we avoid “cookie-cutter” approaches.
- Uncovering the root causes of the condition. We go above and beyond just treating the symptoms by taking the time to find out the actual causes for the condition. This allows our physiotherapists to help our patients better manage their conditions and work towards recovery of not just the symptoms but the underlying causes.
