Great front end staff, wonderful therapist (the one I saw at least), and very nice facility. My therapist was very knowledgeable, with an injury with no direct cause, she has speculated on potential causes and remedies, and has me more confident that I will be back to normal soon. Would definitely recommend.
Was looked after with the upmost respect and Profesional people I would give this one a 5 star rating and suggest it to anyone to go therent and experience what I have thankyou all there
Very professional doctors and staff Care is wonderful.
Quick to get me in Good exercises to get me started.
My first time there and staff and my physiotherapist are amazing and friendly.
I am happy to say that I have almost recovered from neck pain with the help of therapist Pushpinder at this clinic. She is great to work with, very knowledgeable, and helpful. Front desk staff is also very helpful, I was also able to get appointment times that suited my schedule. Thank you!”
Staff are exceptionally friendly and my therapist Rafat is highly knowledgeable, gentle, and a good listener.
Always happy with the service from Innovation. Various therapists have treated a number of my sports injuries over the past 15 years or so, starting with the owner Tony at their Riverbend location. Currently working with Darren and he's doing an excellent job.
Meadowlark location has been great! Very professional, friendly and you feel comfortable.
Aligned Pilates with Carmen Lanteigne
I’ve been a patient of Kumal’s for 5 years. He is very knowledgeable. I use physiotherapy as a way of maintenance
Mohammed and his team are very friendly. I will go and see Mohammed again in the near future, the exercises are helping 😊
I have been attending physio with Areej A. Would highly recommend her... She has been helping me through a "fall" injury and has used dry needling to help with pain and headaches. I hadn't heard of this technique prior but it is very helpful. So glad to have used her services. The fact that she is kind and funny is a bonus!
Been coming only 2 weeks and have found Preet wonderfully helpful. Look forward to the next 5 weeks.
I believe that the team at innovation physical therapy helped me immensely. They were All incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable and they take their craft very seriously. If I ever need physical therapy again they will be the team I choose.
Great therapists, great physio, recommend for Achilles injuries!
Excellent service , experienced staff
I received Physiotherapy from Kamal at the Riverbend Square Innovation location. I have a history of lower back pain that lead to difficulty walking; however, Kamal’s integrative treatment - including, acupuncture, IMS, and exercising - supported me to begin living a pain free life. After 4 weeks of biweekly sessions I was good to go! I would highly recommend receiving treatment from Kamal.
Rafat was an excellent physiotherapist with a lot of knowledge, patient and gentle. He answered all my questions and provided excellent customer service. I would highly recommend him.
My experience I've been receiving at Innovation Riverbend location has been great. Friendly staff, great service .Highly recommend
Very knowledgeable staff they listen to your thoughts and work with you to make you feel awesome!
Kendra is fabulous. She listens and offers a variety of techniques to fit your situation. I have a chronic issue and seen many therapists over the years. Kendra rates a 10+. The assistants at the front are awesome. Courteous and helpful. This is a great professional clinic I recommend to anyone.
Great service, friendly staff, efficient, organised. Highly recommended.
Helped with my knee 10/10
I injured my lower back and was in a lot of pain. I could hardly move. My therapist examined me. She applied some heat and we worked on range of motion. She said that we need to get movement then we can work on strengthening.
I have been treated by Kamal, Rafat, and Pushpinder over the last couple of years for various issues and have had a great experience with each of them. Would highly recommend this clinic.
I would like to recognize and extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to Kamal, who treated my injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. Kamal's caring and firm approach to my treatments along with the prescribed exercises over these past several weeks, enabled me to fully recover from my injuries and resume normal day to day living. Kamal is indeed a very knowledgeable physio therapy professional and a true ambassador for your clinic. As well, I'd like congratulate your front desk team for keeping track of the administration, and helping support Kamal's treatment plan while I was in his care. Thanks Kamal!
I had my first total knee replacement in 2018 and my second knee replacement in February 2019 .My physiotherapist following both knee surgeries was Kamal. I requested Kamal after my second knee surgery as I had a very successful recovery with him as my physiotherapist following the first surgery.I have nothing to say but good things about my experiences - the reception staff are welcoming , friendly and kind. Kamal is an excellent physiotherapist and has helped me return to “normal” with diligent, expert and compassionate care during my recovery. He listens to my concerns and voiced limitations and easily modifies my program to address these needs. Kamal is kind, professional and very knowledgeable is his approach to his patients program for success. Thank you Kamal and staff!
Rafat and all the Staff at the Innovation-Riverbend are very caring and professional. I will recommend their services !thumbs up
Kamal is one of best Physio therapists from whom I have received treatment. His professionalism, knowledge, and expertise in providing quality care was impressive. Thank you Kamal for your dedication to this profession and your patients. Melanie M.
Just want to give cudos to my physio who helped me after my knee replacement. Kamal at your Riverbend site was so very helpful as he did not use a cookie cutter approach but quickly identified what I needed as an individual to recover and regain ultimate use of my knee after my surgery. Thanks so much for your care! Leslie
I have been going to Innovations for over a year of seeing Florence for acupuncture,TENS and exercise. She is amazing and has helped me so very much!!!
I have been visiting this location on and off as need be for over 10 years and have always had a great experience. It can be hard to schedule sometimes due to demand. However, every time I have needed their service I am back to full capacity within a few visits which is really all I want. Their consistent ability to diagnose my issue and get me on the correct track to recovery has never failed. I can't say I have experienced that anywhere else.
I've been going here for years and they've always done a great job of helping me take away my pain. The whole staff is good at what they do and very friendly, especially Kamal and Darren, whove both helped me a lot. Next time I hurt myself I'll be right back there!
My experience with Innovation Physical Therapy Riverbend location was excellent! August 2017 was my first time attending physiotherapy. Darren helped me tremendously with my recovery over the three months that I was there. He provided me with helpful exercises to do at the clinic and at home. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. In February 2018, I came back to the clinic for a different reason. The 2nd time around, I was being seen by Kamal who is also very professional. Kamal is very intelligent, kind and easy to talk to. He always explained what was being done and provided appropriate exercises to help me recover. I am no longer in pain :) I was always greeted with kindness and wonderful smiles as I walked into the clinic from the front desk staff, assistants and others. I would highly recommend Innovation Physical Therapy Riverbend to anyone needing treatment.
Kristen was very professional and polite. My recover was effortless due to her. I would highly recommend anyone who needs physio therapy to go to riverbend innovation physio.
We were very happy with the treatment we received from Kamal and other staff. Kamal was very knowledgeable, extremely friendly and easy to talk to. He always took the time we needed to understand what we were doing. Very happy to answer our questions. We recovered quickly with his guidance. Good facility and gym. The front desk staff were sometimes challenging to understand over the phone. Other than that we would recommend Innovation Riverbend.
Ethical physiotherapist. I did recommend Darren. He is ethical and honest and will refer you if he is unable to handle your case.
Would recommend them to everyone! Wonder experience both times
Wonderful clinic. Very caring, prompt, and effective staff. I've been to numerous physiotherapy clinics in the city, and I would definitely list this clinic as my favourite.
I've been attending innovation physio since 2006. I had my post-accident post-surgery therapy sessions for arthroscopic SLAP repair for my right shoulder rotator cuff. This progressed to therapies to treat & manage TMD jaw disorder, neck, shoulders, lower back and sternum pains. The therapists are very skilled, professional, competent & provide fairly good information on various treatment regimes to me. They're very open to patient feedback & help assuage any fears or concerns. Treatment team staff members are skilled, friendly and prompt. Front office staff are very pleasant and courteous. Ongoing effectiveness of therapies & exercises have been measurable in decreasing incidents of flare-up, pain, & use of medications to manage pain. I've been in attendance at their various locations - so this rating applies to each treatment center. Thanks to Tony, Darren & staff. I very much recommend the services of Innovation Physical Therapy to anyone in need of such.

Do you have any questions ? We've got answers!
Is physiotherapy covered by insurance?Many extended benefit plans cover all or a significant portion of physiotherapy assessment and treatment fees. To learn about your specific plans coverage, we recommend that you get in touch with your insurance provider directly.
Do I need a prescription or doctors referral to access physiotherapy?No. Physiotherapists have been considered Primary Health Professionals since 1995. With this change physiotherapy services may be accessed directly without a referral from your physician. However, if you have an extended health care provider, the provider may still require a physician’s referral to physical therapy before reimbursing your fees.
How soon after my injury should I attend physical therapy?If there are any immediate medical concerns, please see your Physician to assess these concerns and ensure that there are no contraindications to beginning physiotherapy. If there are no immediate medical concerns, or once any medical concerns have been cleared, accessing Physical Therapy immediately can help with an accurate diagnosis, ensure a proper environment for healing of your injury and prevent any delays in healing.
