The Institute for Integrated Physical Rehabilitation began as Physiotherapy North; which was established in North Bay in 1990, with a mission of providing quality physiotherapy treatment where all efforts were placed on identifying underlying causative pathology and applying comprehensive, cost-effective treatment.
SYMETRICS: The Institute for Integrated Physical Rehabilitation
Physiotherapy North evolved to add other rehabilitation professionals in the pursuit of improving our treatment programs. Experience and research has shown that combining physiotherapy, chiropractic, kinesiology and massage therapy offers the most effective rehabilitation approach for all injury types. As a result, a name change became necessary and SYMETRICS-The Institute for Integrated Physical Rehabilitation was born.
In following Physiotherapy North, SYMETRICS remains committed to continuous quality improvement by ongoing participation in clinical research. We understand the need to update and modify programs in pursuit of efficient, cost effective, integrated physical rehabilitation.
SYMETRICS – The Institute for Integrated Physical Rehabilitation is a comprehensive physical rehabilitation clinic which has a mission of providing complete physical rehabilitation for all clients with any musculoskeletal or neuromuscular problem. SYMETRICS uses a team approach integrating physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, kinesiology, acupuncture and intramuscular stimulation to maximize recovery in all facets of the client’s life.
