Are you 65 years of age or older and in pain?
If you are then you probably qualify for physiotherapy treatment at our Community Clinic (formerly Harrington Physiotherapy). This clinic was established in 1986 by Patricia Harrington and is partially government.
Those people who do not have extended health care benefits can receive physiotherapy treatment at a lower rate than at a privately funded clinic.

What We Treat
Common conditions treated include any age-related changes leading to headaches, neck, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, foot or any other joint pain. We provide physiotherapy to get you moving again if you have stiff joints and we help you to correct your posture which will make you look and feel younger. Re-training in the way you walk and improving your balance will make you feel more confident on your feet and help you to retain your independence.
We also offer access to many treatment modalities such as: wax, spinal traction,
whirlpool, laser, ultrasound, electrical stimulation therapy and exercise equipment.
