Welcome to Anders Physiotherapy. We have been providing outstanding hands-on orthopaedic and sports physiotherapy for North York and Scarborough since 1964.
Our patients value our friendly, honest, and professional approach. The knowledgeable team at Anders Physiotherapy have extensive experience in treating acute and chronic sports injuries, post-operative conditions, repetitive stress injuries, postural issues and degenerative/arthritic problems.
Using specialized assessment techniques, our therapists are able to identify the causes of musculoskeletal and neurological problems that result in pain and disability. Our goal-oriented approach, using individualized treatment protocols, is extremely successful in helping patients restore physical function, reduce or eliminate pain, regain mobility, prevent recurrence, build endurance and strength, and improve sleep and activities of daily living.
We believe in quality, efficient and professional services. At our clinic, a registered physiotherapist is always present while patients are receiving treatment and performing exercises.
