Welcome to the team Chantelle!

“I have been treated by Kate Kennedy for about 15 years.  I followed her to Main Street Physio because she is simply the most talented physiotherapist I have had the pleasure of being treated by. She has seen me through a car accident and my recovery, and is very knowledgeable about persistent pain treatment and ongoing issues that arise in a mid-sixties arthritic woman’s body.  Her teaching experience is a great asset in the treatment room as she has up to date information and a vast knowledge base. In addition to physical treatment she has taught me a great deal about my body and about healing, and this has been a source of independence for me.  Her interpersonal skills are amazing which makes the entire experience of healing pain and living with pain much more tolerable. I feel as though I have a partner in my pursuit of wellness.”
