From teaching upcoming physiotherapists as a UBC Clinical Instructor, coaching his little league baseball team, to his work as Vice President of the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia, Aart’s dedication to furthering the community is a mantra highly shared by the whole clinic.
Main Street Physio is proud to be part of The Student Clinical Placement program through the University of British Columbia. Student placements are part of the curriculum set by the Department of Physical Therapy Masters Program, so we host students yearly at the clinic.
We are proud supporters of Little Mountain Baseball, the oldest Little League in Canada, Kensington-Little Mountain soccer club, and the Vancouver Canadians baseball team.
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!”
