How Our Unique Vancouver Physiotherapy Services Will Help You Get Your Goals on Track:

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.

Our therapists have experience playing and treating in a wide range of varsity and amateur competitive sport settings, so you can expect a professional who is highly literate in the best available means to help you reach your goals.

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. You can expect highly skilled therapists who excel in manual therapy and exercise from rehabilitation and pain management to performance. We also offer IMS/dry needling, clinical pilates, and some of Vancouver’s most educated therapists in strength and conditioning/performance exercise.

Here's what our clients say...

I highly recommend Johnny (RMT) as I have been booking sessions with him for hip/lower body issues. My posture, flexibility, and movement have drastically improved within a few sessions. Big thanks to Johnny as I believe these results were made possible by his massage techniques, patience in listening to what I want to achieve, and his genuine desire to help get me to where I want to be. Johnny has an athletic, multi-sport background and was able to educate me on ways I can improve my movements in hockey and golf via stretches, therapy, and muscle groups to target, which I found to be very valuable. Thanks to Johnny, my experience at the clinic has been excellent. In addition, the clinic is very clean, online booking system is straightforward, and parking is convenient.

Fantastic clinic, very well-run operation. Super clean and plenty of natural light. Front desk is very friendly every time you go in and out. All practitioners are committed to helping you in your goals, be it recovery or athletic excellence. Make no mistake, they don't give out magic pills to instantly cure your problem. If you're willing to put in the work, Lift is definitely the place to go!

As an ageing athlete holding on to whatever years he has left doing sports, I consider Heather to be one of.....if not, the BEST Physio therapists I've ever had. Professional, Considerate and Respectful.

I’ve been doing strength training with Shauna after an injury — this is my first time working with a strength coach and I’m beyond blown away. Her knowledge and expertise are so valuable, and her approach runs totally counter to all of the toxic diet/fitness culture stuff I was afraid of encountering. I feel safe and strong and supported. Can’t recommend enough!!

This may include establishing treatment goals, a home exercise program and self-management strategies. The appointment will take approximately an hour.
