Advantage Physiotherapy opened on February 28, 2008 in the Nashwaaksis Plaza next to the SuperStore. We are celebrating our 9th year in business this month!
Advantage Physiotherapy is locally owned and operated by physiotherapist Rob Willcott. Advantage Physiotherapy is not a franchise or part of any chain of clinics. In fact, it is the only locally owned physiotherapy clinic on the Northside.
