October Update

Physiomoves enjoyed another brisk Fall Sunday morning this past weekend at the Peace Arch Hospital Great Pumpkin Run/Walk, cheering on the hundreds of participants and raising money for the ER.  Physiomoves contributed over $600 and Physiotherapists Tyler and Tiphanie provided free post-event massages.  This is a great community event- if you've never tried it, be sure to participate next year!

A BIG announcement!

Physiomoves Physiotherapy Clinic is excited to announce plans to open their second location in the active community of Ocean Park, BC (South Surrey). 

Physiomoves is a rehabilitation clinic with a special focus on sports injuries.  It has grown over the last 5 years in the wonderful area of Panorama Village/Sullivan Station in the heart of Surrey, BC.  Physiomoves has a strong team of Physiotherapists and a loyal clientele who travel from all over the Lower Mainland to receive the very best treatment possible for a variety of orthopaedic conditions.  Now, Physiomoves is ready to grow again, and they are proudly bringing their experience and enthusiasm to South Surrey.

After careful research and years of considering expansion options, Physiomoves Director Tyler Dumont found Ocean Park to have a similar dynamic to that of Panorama Village:  a vibrant, growing community with a passion for health, a special quality of life, and support for local business.

"When we first opened Physiomoves in Panorama Village 5 years ago, I was able to walk to work because my family lived in the area.  We loved being able to support local events and sponsor local teams, and in turn we felt very supported by the community.  We have been able to build a successful business in large part thanks to word of mouth in and among that wonderful neighbourhood." Dumont said. "Now we are ready to do the same thing here in South Surrey.  My wife grew up in Ocean Park, graduated from Earl Marriott Secondary and always hoped to move back to this area.  We are finally here, and we are excited to open our doors and help people of South Surrey regain strength and health through our new Physiomoves clinic.  We have an exceptional team of experienced Physiotherapists all keen to work at the new location. We're thrilled about all the possibilities the area has to offer, and I'm excited to be able to walk to work again on the days I'll be at the new clinic!"  Dumont plans to work Tuesdays and Thursdays at the new location, while continuing to work Monday, Wednesday, Friday and alternating Saturdays at the Hwy 10/152 street location.  Other Physiomoves Physiotherapists who will be working in Ocean Park include Johnny Yiu, Jody Wiebe and  Jessica Deglau.  They are all graduates of the UBC Master of Physical Therapy program, and each therapist brings unique skills and expertise. 

Physiomoves will occupy the space next to Schill Insurance located at 1599 128th Street.  The interior design, private treatment rooms, gym space and equipment will all be very modern and top quality.  Construction has already begun with a tentative opening planned for late November 2012.  A follow up announcement will provide details on how and when clients can begin booking appointments in Ocean Park.

A (busy, fun, growing!) Year in Review

Staying true to our mission, we were fully committed to all-around excellence in 2011. Here are some highlights of the past year. As you can see, we took courses, achieved certifications, were active in and around the Cloverdale/ Surrey/ White Rock communities, and selectively hired more of the best and brightest Physiotherapists out there!

Tyler's knowledge of body mechanics, bike fit and injury prevention was videotaped and is now a permanent feature on the informative website: (there are many others besides this video)

We attended the YMCA Healthy Kids Day and sponsored the Sandcastle City Classic 10km road race in June as well.

  • July: Our baseball pro, Johnny volunteered at the Canada Cup Softball tournament
  • September: Tiphanie Ge joined our Physiotherapy team. Tiphanie is proving to be a major asset at Physiomoves. She is calm and knowledgeable, which works especially well with children and older adults. She is just about licensed to perform acupuncture, something Physiotherapist Kristen (Pummell) Hoffman has been doing at our clinic since she passed all her exams in June 2011. September also saw Kristen tie the knot!
  • October: Our team provided free massages and education to everyone at the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Great Pumpkin Run- what a beautiful, fun day!
  • November: Johnny, Barry and Tyler sported moustaches and raised over $300 for Thanks for all the votes! Physiomoves helped sponsor the entertainment at the well attended, much loved "Santa at Sullivan" event.
  • December: As if our team wasn't already great, we welcomed Christine (De Pape) Campbell to our team permanently, a former national level Field Hockey player and experienced Physiotherapist. We are also ecstatic to have Jessica Deglau on our team for locum work. Jessica is an international swimming sensation, having competed in the 1996 and 2000 Olympic Games!

Thank you to all our clients, friends and professional colleagues who trust Physiomoves to help move their bodies better. We are excited to help you stay injury free and achieve all your health goals for 2012!
