Vancouver Physiotherapy Services

Pain, movement, performance, or longevity? Starting with our intake form and continuing into your treatment – we want to know WHY you’ve come to us. What matters most to you? How is your issue affecting your life and goals?

Our consults and initial visits normally begin with a head to toe assessment so we can understand how the whole body and associated regions affect your issue. Movement happens in patterns across the body – if we can fix the whole pattern, pain and performance goals fall into place.

Speaking of head to toe assessment, our physios, chiros and massage therapists have ALL studied to ensure we can see the body through the same lens. Our focus is to provide you with a team who can and apply our collective skills to help you reach your goals.

Our team of registered physiotherapists have completed masters-level training and bring a collective skillset fuelled by an environment of continuing education, mentorship and collaboration as we strive for excellence here at the Lift Clinic.

Beyond experience in physiotherapy, our therapists bring considerable experience, studies and mentorships in strength training, mobility and a wide range of sports.

Our physiotherapists take pride in providing 1-on-1 care based in manual therapy and exercise. We’re proud to have created an environment that breaks the mold of traditional clinics to seamlessly integrate your experience as you move forward in the rehab-performance continuum.

Wow what an experience! I booked with Diana to address my recurring knee pains with weight training. She did a great job in the assessment and immediately recognized the possible mobility issues that are causing the discomfort. We went through a few exercises and some physical treatment that left me feeling better than ever! This was my first time, but Diana didn’t waste any time in making it a comfortable experience. Looking forward to booking again!

I came into see Diana for sacral nerve pain that I've been experiencing for quite some time over the last few weeks. Over the entirety of our session, my hip range of motion increased substantially and I was able to move pain free even before our session finished! She educated me extremely well and gave me great home exercises to work on until our next session. Thank you Diana and the team at Lift!

First visit at the new Lift Clinic location, which moved from Kingsway onto Knight street, around the corner. Space was clean, and I love the cushy flooring. RMT visit with Michael Fung was super as usual, and I'll be working on the stretch Mike showed me to try to ease my ropey back and shoulder muscles. Good covid safety protocol adherence. Felt safe and comfortable during my visit.

Daniel is absolutely fantastic. Not only does he get you up and moving again as quickly as possible, he knows when to push you and when to be more cautious in the amount of physical activity you should be doing. Highly recommended.

After needing shoulder surgery back in 2017, I was so afraid that I would be one of those volleyball athletes who struggles with shoulder pain their entire career. Thanks to Travis and his team at Lift Clinic, I trust that this isn’t the case. Travis helped me so much throughout my recovery, and has continued to do so over the years. He has so much knowledge of the human body and the importance of the neck when it comes to shoulder health. After releasing tension in my neck my shoulder felt stronger and without pain. I am so grateful for Travis and Lift Clinic for helping me keep my shoulder healthy over the years so that I can feel my best out on the court!

I have been going to LIFT for a number of injuries (including lisfran foot fracture, torn rotator cuff/shoulder pain and runner's wear-and-tear) over the last few years - they're comprehensive approach is second to none. They don't just treat the issue, they are committed to finding the root cause and fixing that. If I could rate 6 stars I would.
