"I went to Perfect Balance for my lower back pain a few weeks ago. I was seen by a physiotherapist, Erika, who was very attentive and thorough in our first consultation. She asked very detailed questions to understand the root cause of the pain and over the course of the first session and whilst doing the exercises at home that she recommended she helped me gain back mobility in my lower back. Followed up with two more sessions where we practiced more exercises and actively worked on my form and core stability. I was worried and fearful to get back to my regular training routine but Erika helped me get over that fear and today I’m back to training (gradually working my way back to my pre injury strength). Erika has been very attentive and continues to be even after I’ve completed my sessions with her. She always gave me honest feedback and pushed me when I was worried and helped me gain my confidence again in my training. Overall I definitely recommend Perfect Balance!"

"Erika is amazing!!! I was impressed how fast I received results. I wish I would have visited her earlier to help me. Highly recommended her. Big thank you to the whole team. Very professional and same time extremely kind.
"Erika was my physio after an ACL surgery. The rehabilitation was tough but I followed her advice, did my homework and it was worth it! Even after more than 10 years my knee is perfectly working, no issues running 10 kms, playing volleyball or biking. Thank you!"
