Fast track your return to sport with zero gravity treadmill training.
Always an industry leader, Burrard Physiotherapy has brought NASA technology to Vancouver! We are the only physiotherapy clinic in Vancouver to offer this revolutionary rehabilitation device. The AlterG treadmill is a full sized treadmill that is able to unload a person’s body weight up to 80%. This technology was developed by NASA to retrain astronauts returning from space, but has real world applications. I discovered this amazing technology while recovering from an injury myself. I sustained an injury to my L5 disc which caused compression of my nerve. Even though my disc had resolved significantly, I had been unable to even jog across the road without getting spasms in my left leg. When I went to test out the AlterG, I was able to run at 6miles per hour with no pain and no post exercise soreness as a result of impacting on my nerve. It changed not only my rehab but my outlook on my future.Book Now

After a couple of failed visits to other clinics, Linda Warren gave me the confidence the physiotherapy does exist and is useful. Her genuine interest in my condition (bike accident), professional attitude and all the information she provided helped me understand what's wrong and how it will get better. Her therapy is also helping relieve the pain and the worry associated with it. I feel like she could be my regular physiotherapist going forward.
Great location, and the hours are pretty good. Just minutes away from my boyfriends west end condo so I usually walk over.
This clinic has helped me a lot. I used to go for massage therapy when I had a muscle injury (Erika is great) and then for another injury I tried IMS. I'm legit terrified of needles but a friend told me to try it, and it did wonders. Farhana (I hope I spelled that right!) is amazing, a few sessions fixed me right up, much less painful than massaging the muscles. I am very grateful to the staff - they've kept me on my feet (literally).
I went for a bike fitting with Thomas, a couple of months ago. He was friendly, knowledgeable and provided a full report after the fitting. He took the time to listen and understand my history and approached the fitting in a thorough and careful way. Cheers Thomas
I've been going to Burrard Physiotherapy for almost a month after a triceps tear lead to arm, shoulder, and neck pain, and have been working with Kevin Chen. He's incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and receptive, and the improvement with my pain and discomfort is noticeable. The environment is clean and comforting, and the receptionists always greet you in a warm way. Treatment always starts on time too.
Burrard Physiotherapy is an amalgamation of two outstanding physiotherapy clinics in downtown Vancouver. Burrard Physiotherapy Associates was established in 1982 as was Burrard Physiotherapy Clinic each of these businesses operated out of separate locations one block apart.
It wasn't until local Kerry Maxwell purchased both clinics in 2004 and 2005 that they merged to become Burrard Physiotherapy. The clinic is driven to provide an outstanding level of care and recovery for patients. Each of the therapists at Burrard Physiotherapy have multiple levels of training and education over and above their original degrees. In addition, everyone leads active lifestyles. This is essential to understanding the impact that an injury can have on your lifestyle. We believe physiotherapy carried out by a qualified team is the path to freedom of movement and mobility & we believe freedom of movement is essential to quality of life.
Our reception area boasts a coffee and tea service and comfortable seating in a cozy setting filled with local art. Any of our three receptionists will be happy to settle you in to your treatment routine while you are here with us.
