Welcome to McCallum Physiotherapy Abbotsford
Physiotherapy means different things to different people. To us, it is time well spent through thorough assessments, quality treatment techniques, and an on-going plan for successful health. Let us be involved in making your recovery as effective as possible.
As a supporter of the Aspire Orthopaedic Manual Therapy Institute we continue to instruct physiotherapists world wide to refine and improve their own skills to further serve their communities. In the field of health, there is a constant refinement of what we know about the body and how to best manage and prevent pain and injuries. As we find out more, the definition of good also needs to be re-defined.
Here at McCallum Physiotherapy, we are constantly refining and improving how we look at the body and how we can positively impact it. We are leaders in quality care with a personal approach.
