Seriously... getting treatment from Mary Wong Colebrook felt like a miracle. I've had physio, massage, naturopathy, accupuncture, you name it, from many awesome practitioners for various issues over the years and can honestly say I had hands down the best treatment I've ever had. Mary identified the issue almost within seconds and the treatment plan had me go from barely able to walk to being back in motion again in no time at all. Customer service is slso excellent here ... great front desk staff!read more

I would highly recommend Nick Friesen. I've been working with him over the course of a few months, with a back/neck injury and he has been nothing but a miracle worker. I tried so many different physiotherapists and Nick is the only one who could actually help me. He's very very knowledgeable and just an all around great guy with a positive attitude! I look forward to my sessions with him. I'm sure any of the physiotherapists at broadmead physio are just as great. Bonus that the receptionists are super helpful and very polite!! Always so friendly!read more

I always got excellent help from Nick Friesen whenever we met. Through some basic movement tests, he was immediately able to pinpoint the root cause of the issue! I highly recommend his services!read more

My husband (big fan of hockey) found this physio by Googling and booked for Ian (His profile shows Ian used to be a physical therapy consultant to the Edmonton Oilers!). I had a major accident last year. I can walk on my own again without any devices because of Ian’s help and guidance. He is indeed honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, helpful, and has a good sense of humour. He sends me follow up emails to ensure that I don’t forget my training menu at home. I have never seen such a dedicated therapist in my life. The physio office is always really clean and all the receptionists are helpful. Thank you.read more
