About Us

Our Company

At Beamsville Physiotherapy, we know that the most effective physiotherapy starts with understanding your pain and the source of it. That is why we take pride in the effectiveness of our assessment process and it distinguishes us in our field.

Once we understand what is causing your pain, we use our training and experience to match the problem with science-based physiotherapy. When called for, we will also prescribe exercises to be done between visits to support the healing process.

We treat back and neck pain, sports injuries, workplace injuries, motor vehicle injuries, and issues relating to health conditions and surgeries. We offer manual therapy, acupuncture, an upper extremity program and pelvic floor therapy along with many other services.

For two decades we have been making a positive difference in the health and lives of residents of Beamsville, Lincoln, West Lincoln, Grimsby and surrounding areas in West Niagara.

Our comfortable, bright clinic at 4413 Ontario Street, Beamsville, is on the second floor of a medical arts building and there is ample free parking outside and an elevator to assist you in reaching our clinic. We have roots in this community that go back 20 years and take our role in the community seriously by sponsoring sports teams and treating injured players.
