At Vineland Physiotherapy it is our mission to provide a service that treats patients as individuals and assists them in reaching their own personal goals.
Our philosophy of care centres on promotion of active, pain-free movement. Our slogan, “Move your body, live your life” sums up our objective for each patient.
We serve a broad range of ages in our patients. As the clinic is located near a retirement community, we treat many seniors. We also treat a lot of young and middle-aged athletes because of our reputation for success in sports medicine.
Whatever the age, our goal is to help all patients get back to living life to their maximum potential and capability.
Our ground floor clinic in Heritage Square is wheelchair accessible and there is plenty of free parking.
We offer flexible appointment times to meet the majority of schedules.
