One of our clients was experiencing bouts of intense anxiety and depression, imparting feelings of defeat when managing her osteoarthritis. We introduced practical relaxation techniques, in addition to her mobility exercises. This was crucial in helping her manage not only her osteoarthritis but also how she mentally copes with life challenges in general."</p> <p><strong><em>We make it happen</em>. </strong>"One of our clients had been off work for two years. She couldn't see a future where she was able to return to work. Through a customized physiotherapy and occupational therapy plan, we empowered her return to work in under eight months."</p> <p><strong><em>We aim higher.</em> </strong>"The COVID pandemic and resulting isolation amplified the challenges faced by children on the ASD spectrum as they struggled to maintain a routine. Not only were we able to create and run virtual sessions for the children, but we also met with all the parents for one-on-one support, providing them with activities to help build structure and stability for their children."</p> <p><strong><em>We do great work together. </em></strong>"It's coming together with like minded people but all from different areas.
