LV Physiotherapy - Improving quality of life, facilitating active rehabilitation, and promoting pain-free functional mobility.

About LV Physiotherapy

 

LV Physiotherapy was founded by Physiotherapist Lisa Vandenberk. Strong motivators for opening her own practice include the increasing demands of an aging population and the need for more physiotherapy centers offering neurological rehabilitation. Individuals 65 years and older are the fastest growing population in the Niagara region and rates of disease and disability associated with aging are also sky rocketing.

 

There is an increased need for health promotion and wellness as well as secondary prevention in those living with chronic diseases including diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Wait lists in hospitals for outpatient physiotherapy programs are climbing to over 2 years long. Inpatients are also being discharged home from hospitals sooner, leaving them with ongoing physiotherapy goals in the community. These influences, in addition to Lisa's passion for helping others and her desire for professional growth have motivated her to open LV Physiotherapy in St. Catharines, ON.
