Who We Are

Core Connection Mobile Physiotherapy is a unique and innovative mobile rehabilitation company with a vision of providing accessible physiotherapy & kinesiology to Southern Vancouver Island. Our passion is delivering preventative healthcare programs within individuals’ homes with the goal of reducing the burden on the public healthcare system

What We Deliver

Accessible care: Our goal is to serve those who have difficulty leaving their home for rehabilitation services. We cater to those individuals who have traumatic injuries, ongoing mobility impairments, time constraints, newborn babies or young children, issues with childcare and/or mental health concerns. We are working hard to build a financially accessible, non-profit sister company in 2024. 

Preventative Care: our programs are designed to educate on and prevent physical dysfunction with the goal of reducing the burden on the public system.

Comprehensive care:  Getting out of the traditional pressures of a brick and mortar clinic environment allows us to spend the time with clients who need to be seen, heard and supported in their recovery.

Individualized care:  Clients allowing us access into their home environment gives us the unique perspective into how their rehabilitation plan can fit effectively and appropriately into their day to day lives and activities.
