About Us

About Wadden Physiotherapy

Wadden Physiotherapy and Sport Performance is a private practice physiotherapy clinic located in Membertou, NS. We have extensive experience in treating orthopaedic, MVA, WCB and sports injury patients.  We want to provide the quality, individualized care people want and need to achieve their goals – whether that’s gardening, playing sports, working or playing with their children or grandchildren.

We want to provide the same care to our patients that we would want our families to receive. We are passionate about what we do and offer a personable and positive environment for our patients. We want to empower them to take an active role in their recovery. We believe that physiotherapy is not something that is “done to you”, but should be a collaborative effort with the patient.

Our Care Priorities

Pain Management

We will help you manage your symptoms through hands on care, exercise and a variety of treatment modalities. We focus on education so that you understand what is causing your symptoms, your treatment plan and what you can do to perform the daily activities that are important to you.

Improve Mobility

Pain and injury can make everyday movements very difficult to do. This often leads to altered movement patterns and restrictions in range of motion. We will help you restore or improve your mobility and return to the activities you enjoy.

Increase Strength

As your pain level and mobility improve, it is essential that focus on improving strength and your overall function. We want to educate you on how to make your body more resilient to reduce the risk of injury recurrence and improve your overall level of performance.

About Our Clinic

We are a locally owned and operated physiotherapy clinic. We perform all of our assessments and treatments in private rooms and also have a fully functional gym space. We will take the time to perform a thorough assessment and educate our patients about their condition and how we’re going to reach their desired goals. We will establish a plan of care that is current and that can be modified or progressed as you improve. We believe that it is essential that patients take an active role in their own recovery. We will communicate with your healthcare providers to keep them updated on your progress and care. We are a team of innovative, passionate and caring healthcare professionals that will strive to offer high-quality, individualized care and be active members of our community!
