Physiobility started out under a different name as the first physiotherapy clinic in Markham Village, pre-dating Markham-Stouffville Hospital. Local physicians had identified an acute need for quality rehabilitation service in this region and recruited physiotherapists. A physio clinic was set up on Main Street Markham next door to the local doctor’s office. Eventually the clinics evolved and moved, with Physiobility moving to Station Plaza (on Main Steet Markham N) and now to the current location at Heritage Plaza (NE corner of Wootten Way N and Hwy 7 E).
The clinic has expanded by adding other key healthcare services – all vetted for quality and legitimate medical service. Registered massage therapy and pelvic health physiotherapy were the first two additions. As our reputation grew, we added key staff to complement our physio and massage therapy services: Occupational Therapy for hands and wrists, Pedorthics for custom foot orthotics, and Registered Dietetics for managing nutritional needs. More recently we are donating space to the Arthritis Society for their AREP program.
Our philosophy is to consider the whole person and their movement potential. We will improve your mobility according to your goals and ability. We offer a detailed assessment, thorough discussion about treatment options, and instruction about independent home management. Our guiding principle is for clients to achieve:
Mobility • Stability • Flexibility • Ability
