Aart van Gorkum opened Main Street Physiotherapy Clinic in 2009. The clinic became the first physiotherapy clinic in the vibrant Main Street/Queen Elizabeth Park area and has continued to be a fixture here, supporting community sports teams and providing workshops and in-services for local schools, teams and businesses.
Main Street Physiotherapy Clinic offers a full range of services focusing on client education, exercise prescriptions, and hands-on treatments. Our highly trained and experienced physiotherapists will tailor your physiotherapy treatment to fit your specific needs and get you back on your feet, whether your injury is due to sports, a car or work place accident, a joint replacement, or medical condition. We offer private rooms and an on-site gym.
The clinic is located on Main Street between 32rd and 33rd Avenues. There is free street parking in the area and easy accessibility by car, bike or public transit.
On a cold and dark November morning while riding to work my bike slid out from under me resulting in an injury to my rotator cuff. I started visiting Peter Francis two weeks later as I still could not lift my arm above my waist. He assessed my initial injuries while reviewing my overall health. Peter demonstrated that he has an extensive knowledge about the physiology of the body. After each session, I found my range of motion increased dramatically. He was able to prescribe and clearly demonstrate effective stretches and exercises I could do at home. I found Peter to be professional, knowledgeable and passionate about his job. Little does he know his new nickname is “Mr. Magic!”
