Came here after my car accident. Front staff were very kind and helpful, at Stride the staff go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and cared for.
Kru Patel is the best physiotherapist in the Edmonton area! I first met Kru after I was diagnosed with a rare medical condition.
Ritesh has been my physiotherapist to assist me on the road to recovery after an MVA. He has been very patient in assessing and treating my injuries.
Kru has been treating my husband for a few years now and saw major improvements after taking a break frim his physio he started getting really bad shoulder pain and he went back and after 2 visits has already shown so much improvement.
Kru is the the man I love to hate! He puts me through my paces but he is the only one who has been able to do anything about the pain in my shoulder.
I came into Stride with hopes of healing from my foot injury and I was pleasantly surprised when Kru had me walking during our first physiotherapy session.
The team at Stride Sports & Physiotherapy effectively treats all types of injuries by getting to the root cause of your discomfort.
