“…keeping me active and still enjoying my sports pain-free!“
Christina has always been (and will be) my go to for all my sports injuries over the years. She’s great from a traditional physiotherapist standpoint, but the bonus for me is her ability to do IMS/acupuncture. Christina is extremely meticulous with the needles, and her patient and friendly personality definitely help with staying calm and relaxed during the needle treatment. The addition of having needles in my treatment mix with the physio, along with learning the proper conditioning exercises have been great in keeping me active and still enjoying my sports pain-free!

“…able to provide some immediate relief…“
Overall a very positive experience. Christina is very knowledgeable and was able to pinpoint the cause of my back pain. She was able to provide some immediate relief as well as provide clear instructions on the exercises to perform to treat the root cause of the pain. Highly recommended.

“…anyone who needs a professional and compassionate physiotherapist.“
Christina Wong is such zeal and passion for her job as a Physiotherapist to help her patients get better. She is knowledgeable and skillful in all the techniques that she uses. I came to see her because of my TMJ problem and fibromyalgia which was aggravated after a recent rear-ended car accident. I have seen Christina for the last 2 months. I can see my improvement and i am looking forward to complete healing to my TMJ joint and hopefully my long term chronic pain as well I highly recommend Christina Wong to anyone who needs a professional and compassionate physiotherapist.
