I went for the first time for physio to help heal a mild fracture, and I’m glad I chose Curavita. The physiotherapist successfully helped me improve the range of motion of my arm and reduce the pain. She treated me, and I did all the exercises as prescribed, and I quickly regained normal usage of my arm. She is also very nice and friendly. The front desk is also very welcoming and professional. They also offer other services, like chiro and massage therapy, which I will probably try. Plus it is steps away from where I live in the Byward market.
Thank you!

I have had nothing but good experiences at Curavita. The team is professional, attentive, and caring, starting with the receptionists, all well trained. The physiotherapist is a gem. Being used to US physical therapy, I was pleasantly surprised with how my sessions went: instead of focusing on the exercises that she had given me, this was no more than a couple of questions: have you done them? Where was the pain? Where did you have trouble? She then adjusted my “homework” and proceeded with massage, ultrasounds or whatever hands on treatment I needed to release the pain and get me ready for my week. The facilities are clean and pleasant.

I’ve had both physiotherapy and chiropractic care here.

The PT is an incredible physiotherapist. I sprained my ankle pretty bad, and decided to get physio. The physiotherapist worked with me to initially get my flexibility back and then worked on strengthening exercises. I was back to playing sports in no time. She is very knowledgeable and takes her time to ensure you understand the exercises. I highly recommend her for physiotherapy.

The chiropractor is exceptionally proficient in chiropractic care. They are entirely focused on the wellbeing and improvement of each patient. I look forward to every appointment. If you are looking for someone that understands the discomfort or pain you may be feeling and has the knowledge and experience to assist you, look no further.

Do yourself a favour and visit Curavita. The chiropractor, the physiotherapist and the staff are truly wonderful. Thank you for all your hard work and effort!

My toe pain was much reduced in quite a short period of time thanks to the physiotherapist, a superb physical therapist. She clarified what the issue was, let me know how the procedure would operate, and made sure I understood the exercises I needed to perform at home. She listens well and communicates clearly. I’ll keep using her services and would definitely suggest her!

I went to Curavita for knee issues, and was attended to by the physiotherapist. She is a miracle maker. She was very clear and articulate about how the treatment plan will proceed, and how I am also supposed to contribute to the treatment by doing my part of exercises. She planned 4 sessions in addition to the assessment. By the 4th session, also with keeping up with my exercises, I was good to go!

The place overall is good. They are flexible, accommodating and have reasonable prices.

I’m satisfied with this clinic. It was my first time going to physiotherapy in general and after few sessions I can already see a good progress from treatments with Sakshi Arora. She and everyone in the clinic are very professional, friendly, and are always trying to help. The booking system is also very easy, appointments are always on time.
If I will need a specialist again in the future I will definitely come back.

I saw the physiotherapist for physio a few months after breaking my ankle, and I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience and the results. The physiotherapist kept me on track with my exercises, and I always found our appointments productive. Aside from that, she is very professional, kind, and friendly, and we had some great conversations during the course of treatment. The clinic staff were also very considerate and helpful. My injury was work-related, and Curavita’s staff took care of all the back-and-forth with WSIB, which made my life so much easier. Wonderful experience, would absolutely recommend.

I have been working with the physiotherapist at Curavita for the past 1 month for some chronic pain I’ve been having for years. Over the past month, she has helped me understand where this stemmed from, working on reducing the pain, strengthening my muscles and equipping me with tools to manage this by myself in the long term. She has been supportive and an absolute expert in both pain management and physical therapy. 100% recommend her for physiotherapy services!

Always awesome when a company lives up to its name! I went into CURAVITA with “pass-out” level pain in my right arm. The physiotherapist is the best. Not only did they diagnose and treat my injury, she explained the “why” and completely changed the ergonomics of my desk space and posture to be now pain free and back in the gym.

Thank you for returning me to good health – I missed it!

I wanted to share a review following a few months of physiotherapy I experienced under the excellent care of the physiotherapist. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience. She was professional, knowledgeable and regularly checked in on progress, adjusting her treatment as my situation changed. She also took the time to clearly and thoroughly explain various options, providing pros and cons for each, and ensured that my comfort level was the main factor in determining how we proceeded. She also coordinated care with a massage therapy colleague which supplemented the treatment.

Finally, her “bedside manner” was very strong, sharing stories and chatting about all sorts of subjects, complemented by a great sense of humour while I was under her care.

Thanks to the Curavita Byward Team, and particularly the physiotherapist, for a great experience during a time where my physical pain was quite limiting.

Shockwave Therapy – Glebe Clinic

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves creating a series of low-energy acoustic wave pulsations that are applied using a gel medium to the injured area. The purpose of this therapy is to trigger the body’s own natural healing response. There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment. The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effectiveness of treatment is cumulative, so you will require more than one treatment. Most conditions will require 3-6 treatments done 3 to 10 days apart. Following treatment, you may experience temporary soreness, tenderness or swelling for a few days. Upon completion of your treatment, you can return to most regular activities.

Shockwave Therapy has been shown to effectively treat the following conditions:
Tennis Elbow . Golfer’s Elbow . Calcific Tendinosis of the rotator cuff muscles . Patellar Tendinitis . Bursitis . Shin Splints . IT band friction syndrome . Patellar Tendinitis . Plantar Fasciitis . Heel Spurs . Achilles Tendinitis

Most personal healthcare plans in Ontario cover the cost of Shockwave Therapy when it is administered by a Physiotherapist. Please check with your insurer to determine your coverage

If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident and require physiotherapy, we have the expertise to rehabilitate a wide range of motor vehicle accident injuries including common orthopaedic conditions such as whiplash, back strains, as well as accident-specific joint, muscle, ligament, tendon, spine and bone conditions. Our primary goal is to help you to recover quickly from your injuries and to assist you with the paperwork associated with car accidents. We will work with you to coordinate all of your benefits with your Insurance Company. We will also work collaboratively with your medical doctor if you wish.

Physiotherapy for Workplace Injuries and Claims (WSIB)

It’s not uncommon for Ontario workers to seek physiotherapy treatment after suffering an injury while at work. Many patients are covered under the provincial Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) regulations. However, to qualify for the coverage, the accident needs to be reported to your employer and a report filed as soon as possible. Of course, the employer will need to be registered with the WSIB.

At CURAVITA, we are a registered service provider for WSIB claims and will be able to provide you with information on how to access our many healthcare services. Our goal is to assist you and make the entire process as simple as can be.
