Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Donna Sarna Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation is an innovative and modern clinic where staff is inspired through leadership and by example to be elite among their peers. The talented team of therapists is dedicated to providing holistic treatments for a wide range of conditions and symptoms for people of all ages. We offer hands-on care of injuries along with exercise prescription for the evaluation and treatment of pain and dysfunction, utilizing a whole body approach. Our goal is to go beyond treating the symptoms of pain; we are committed to finding and alleviating the root source of pain.

A component of our approach to holistic care is centered on the premise that many minds are exponentially wiser than one alone. This means that we take a team approach, frequently consulting with each other to bring you the best care possible.

As a client, you’ll see differences small and large. These include providing an attractive and relaxing space to accommodate you that features private rooms, appointment scheduling that ensures you get the attention you need, and a team of professionals who are passionate about health and wellness, who also want you, the client, to be a part of the team.

We encourage communication with clients as a vital component of care. You are always welcome – and invited – to ask questions and provide feedback regarding treatment and advice. The more you understand and the more you feel empowered, the healthier you will be.
