Hear from others
So glad I found this place. Derrick is a wonderful physiotherapist I’ve met. He’s really goes out of his way to provide his help. Couldn’t have asked for anyone else.
Went to see a Physiotherapist (Derrick) to checkout my posture and neck due to my long days sitting at a desk. Derrick was able to identify the points on my neck and back that were strained right away and gave me a set of exercises to work-on to improve.
