"I have been going to see Endri at Athlete's Care for over a year now. He provides top of the line service and has always been open to show me the best exercises to stabilize my shoulder. While Endri is a relatable individual and I really enjoy my monthly appointment, his professionalism and knowledge is what stands out. Would definitely recommend Endri for anyone that has shoulder issues!

Aside from Endri - the staff at Athletes Care are amazing! The front desk check-in is quick and easy and the email receipts so it's easy for me to submit insurance claims and is better for the environment." C.H.


"I have had multiple injuries over the years which caused pain and swelling. Victoria, in a matter of weeks, not only repaired the damage but had me up and walking without pain. Thank you Victoria and Athletes Care staff for all you do." - P.O


"I had a great experience with my physiotherapist here, her name was Gita. She was welcoming through every session, always friendly, had fun conversations, focused eagerly on achieving and maintaining my goals and definitely helped ease the pain of a torn ACL as an athlete in a lot of ways, which I’m very grateful for. Thank you so much for a great experience!" - J.E

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I'm not covered by insurance? Some patients do pay out-of-pocket for physiotherapy. We accept most major credit cards, debit, and cash. We provide only the therapy you need, and we will empower you to supplement your in-clinic care with a home care program.  
Do I need to bring anything with me?If you plan on having insurance cover your treatments, bring your insurance information and we can look into whether direct billing for physiotherapy is an option with your insurance provider. Bring your referral or doctor's note, if you have one. Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing. 
What happens on my first visit? You will be thoroughly assessed by a Registered  Physiotherapist. The physiotherapist will develop an appropriate treatment plan and get you started with treatment right away.

Is a doctor's referral necessary?
A doctor’s referral isn't necessary, but in rare cases, our physiotherapist may need you to see your doctor or a sports medicine physician to get further testing done. Note that some extended insurance may require doctor’s referral to get reimbursements for physiotherapy as well.
What shall I wear? Comfortable, loose fitting clothing is suggested as specific areas in the body are subject for evaluation and treatment. For instance, if the issue is on you knee then it’s better to wear shorts or loose fitting pants that can be rolled up.
How many treatments do I need? Number of treatments depends on your condition and the severity of your injury. Everyone responds differently to their type of treatment, but you will know on day 1, before you leave, what is suggested.


"I’ve been here for treatments on my knee (torn ACL and miniscus) and separately for back issues. The physiotherapists have been professional, caring & patient with me everytime I’ve been here over the years. The front desk staff are cheerful, professional and so pleasant to deal with every visit."
