“We Help People Aged 50+ To Become More Active And Mobile, Without Painkillers… So You Can Do What You Enjoy Most!”

Gage Physiotherapy Gym with Covid-19 Precautions

At Gage Physiotherapy and Foot Clinic we love to help people in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and above, get back to living the life they deserve. Which means a life free from painkillers, where you don’t have to worry about bothering the doctor, and can do and enjoy all of the things you love, without the fear of pain holding you back.

When something like chronic pain strikes in your knee, lower back, neck or shoulders, or if you experience an injury from sport or exercise - we know it’s very tempting to leave it and hope it’ll simply “go away on its own” with time and rest… That you’ll wake up someday and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened in the first place - but that’s usually not the case, and often the pain ends up worse than it was when it first started.

We also know it’s very easy to reach into the back of the cupboard for the painkillers, and take them whenever pain strikes so it eases off fast - but all those painkillers are no good for your health long-term, and do nothing but mask the pain instead.

Or, maybe you’re left feeling confused, even skeptical because you’ve sought advice from other healthcare professionals, or a physiotherapist in the past, and nothing they seemed to say or do helped.

Can You Relate?

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. At Gage Physiotherapy and Foot Clinic we hear this all the time… In fact people who come to see us have often:

  • Thought the pain would go away on its own - but it didn’t.
  • Paid several visits to the Doctor, only to be told to “rest” and “take some painkillers” - then weeks later go back to see the Doctor again, only to be prescribed MORE rest, and an even stronger dose of painkillers.
  • Been put on a months long waiting list after being referred to see a specialist, then when after waiting so long to be seen - were given a sheet of exercises, which did nothing to ease the pain quick, if at all.
  • Tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn’t do a thing or aggravated the pain making it even worse.
  • Thought it would be a good idea to rest because the pain was so bad, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight.
  • Been told by a family member or friend that “everybody gets aches and pains as they get older” - making it easy to accept it’s “just a part of life”

Any of Those Sound Familiar?

If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physiotherapists at our Hamilton Mountain clinic to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!

Click the link below to book a call with us if you would like to get some solid advice given to you over the phone. The phone call is complementary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.

  • Avoid dangerous surgery - we’ll help you get to the root-cause of what’s going on quick - so you don’t have to get to the point of having to face surgery to fix it
  • Found out what’s wrong - we’ll help give you peace of mind and ensure that your problem is “corrected” and “healed” properly - and we will provide you with the perfect set of exercises that will speed up your recovery
  • Get more enjoyment out of life - so you can enjoy quality time with family and friends that aches and pains can steal from you, and finally get a good night sleep without tossing and turning trying to find that one position that feels right

I've been coming to this place for a couple of months now, and the staff here are super friendly and easy to talk to. My physiotherapist Dr. Woodland is amazing. He is very thorough in asking the right questions and will go over the information from your form but also any that you tell him and repeats it back so that you understand that HE understands. Dr. Woodland is very friendly and professional and even takes the time to remember anything that is going on with his patients, he has that personal touch.The other physiotherapists and receptionist are very friendly, so easy to talk and joke around with and are more than acccomodating when it comes to booking or canceling appointments.I am so happy that I decided to come here, and will continue to come here!

I had a herniated disk in my upper neck about 3 years ago that still causes occasional pain from my neck, through my shoulder, and down my right arm. I received great physiotherapy services from Val and Emil during the last quarter of 2020, which helped alleviate the pain and discomfort, along with some great advice on home exercises I can do moving forward. Jay, the assistant, runs a tight ship and everyone is very personable. Highly recommended!

This clinic is amazing! I really can't stress that enough. Val is a great physiotherapist and she really wants to see you get better. She offered me a wide variety of treatments to help with my Achilles issues including cupping, taping, therapeutic ultrasound and shockwave treatment (highly recommend). She also gave me some homework exercises and stretches to work on myself. She's professional, super knowledgeable and very safety oriented in regards to COVID protocols as well. Lots of parking (free) in the plaza. Val helped me get mobile again and walking and doing the stairs without pain! I'm over the moon impressed:) Highly recommend her services.

As this was my first on the job injury that required rehabilitation, I can say they got me back to where I expected to be in record time. With an ankle injury I had fears that I would not be able to to do all the things I used to be able to do or at least not as well. Over a year later and the whole incident has been the furthest thing from my mind, but that’s how it should be. I must also mention that I was always treated with respect, and sincerely felt that there was true compassion and understanding through out the process. I can also say that the care and thoroughness was always there even when I felt (hastily so) that I may no longer need treatment. Finally, the attentive listening to my questions about my injury, educating me, and helping me understand exactly what had transpired,and what I could expect both as a result of the injury, and the treatment was immensely reassuring. Thank you to everyone who helped in my recovery. If you are in need of a service such as theirs, I can only recommend them on all levels as there was nothing that I was dissatisfied with.

I went to gage physiotherapy for my back pain caused from my slip disc. I was having sciatica pain and could barely walk. I visited Dr Robbie woodland and he worked wonders. After a few visits I was feeling way better. now I go see dr Robbie just for maintenance every week to keep me feeling loose and nimble. I highly recommend checking him out if you’re in pain.

Approximately a year ago, I started taking treatment on a very painful and debilitating arthritic left hip. I was barely able to walk or lift my leg from a horizontal position. Valerie worked on this problem for many months and with heath therapy, maniuplation and exercise, I was able to walk out of the office with barely a noticable limp 6 months later. I have maintained some of the exercises and continued with glucosimine and controitin daily, and Tylenol for Arthritis, I am nearly pain free and even less of a limp. The tissue in the joint had somewhat desintrated (my nonmedical words) causing the pain and limp as my leg is now a touch shorter. But I can now live with this presence. Thanks to Valerie and the team at Gage Physio I would not have gotten this far without their dedicated assistance.

Extremely happy with the level of professionalism balanced with the positive personalism that Val and her team provided for me. My recovery was a long, bumpy road but they were there for every step to help in every way they could.I was unable to properly walk, sit or stand without extreme pain after an injury at work. Thanks to Val and her squad, I’m fully recovered and back to my normal life and work and play. Thanks again guys.

I have been having pelvic physio with Valerie for the last 6 months and have dramatically noticed an improvement. I suffered a prolapse after having my first child and after receiving very little help from my doctor I thought I would try physio. It has helped me both mentally and physically. Valerie has been so sympathetic, she has listened to my problems, acknowledged my concerns and been proactive and honest about my recovery. It’s a very intimate treatment and Valerie has always been professional and made me feel completely comfortable with the process. I would recommend this place to all woman both before and after having a baby, I wish I had found them sooner.

Ever since I got injured at work, I have been going to Gage physiotherapy for treatments and strengthening exercises. Val and her staff have been phenomenal in speeding up my recovery and making sure I keep up with the exercises to not only heal, but to get stronger and prevent future injuries. My favorite part is how they provide multiple services in one place- they have orthotics and massage so you don't have to look anywhere else. The staff are super friendly and make you feel comfortable every visit. Overall I would definitely recommend!

Val, Nicole, Rob and Anna I can’t thank you all enough for working with me towards my recovery after a bad car accident. I highly recommend them all as they have made these past 7 months more positive for me mentally and physically. Couldn’t have asked for better professionals in my recovery. They all listen to your concerns and actually care about you as an individual.
