Kyle Whaley and the staff at Propel Physiotherapy in Pickering have provided me with exceptional care, and concern for my well being. The clinic is bright, welcoming and a pleasant place to work through rehabilitation from an injury. I highly recommend this clinic!

I was in a car accident in April of 2017 and although I had participated in a physical therapy program, I plateaued and saw no more improvement. I was diagnosed with post concussive syndrome and functional thoracic outlet, among other things… I was hopeless and withering away UNTIL I found Propel and Alanna. She is a miracle worker and reinstilled hope. I’ve been attending for three months and I look forward to treatment here because of the relief that she brings.

By far the best physiotherapy clinic I have attended since my car accident in 2014. Alanna is professional, takes the time to explain and has reduced my pain level, to a more manageable level with expertise, care and compassion.
