What others have to say about us.

"My new therapist is Maggie Suranko.  She is an excellent therapist.  I have been attending her since January 5, 2021 and find that she is very knowledgeable in this field.  She shows great concern and consideration for my needs.  I am recovering from a stroke and I am very satisfied in her excellent treatment.  Thank you, Spine & Sports, and a very special thank you to Maggie."

"Cheryl and Carla have been a weekly staple in my life following a serious neck injury in 2019.  Their evidence-informed treatment has been the cornerstone of my recovery process, and the rehabilitation exercises have been massively impactful on my levels of pain and range of motion.  I'm grateful to have their clear communication, compassionate care, and deep understanding of body mechanics with me on my journey to recovery.  The entire team has been outstanding to reducing my stress - special thanks to Dawn in the office for helping with insurance and booking appointments! I highly recommend North End Spine and Sports to all those looking for exceptional, professional, top-notch physical therapy and massage therapy."

"There are no words to describe this amazing group of people at this clinic. They emphasize "structure without function is a corpse". Cheryl Witter lives up to her name "wit", cheery and a wee bit of sarcasm to add. I'm sure her motto is, "I may hurt it today but it will work tomorrow" for it does! Carla Buchanan is a fantastic RMT, who has the ability to find those sore spots and make them better. And Madison Powls, there is an up and coming star of the team. After sessions with her, found that I was able to move better than I had in years."

"After experiencing my first episode of QL muscle strain/pain and feeling reluctant to go for Physiotherapy, I was fortunate to be referred to Cori Hanan and had a very positive experience. She made me feel welcome, comfortable and provided me with some very good stretches to try at home. After only two sessions, I was well on my way to recovering from pain that had been bothering me for months."

- Sheryl McGowan

"I highly recommend North End Spine & Sports.  I see Carla for massage and Cheryl for physio.  They treat the current issues and always suggest and remind of preventative and maintenance exercises to help keep our lifestyles enjoyable.  Everyone is a strong asset to their team.  From the front desk to the treatments, the friendly professional atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing.  With the onset of Covid, Cheryl and everyone continue to make sure their environment is safe and relaxing at the same time as we work thru this pandemic."

"Tanis gives the most absolute amazing massages. As well, listens to where my pain is and asks me if the pressure is too much or too soft and checks every few minutes how I'm doing.  So very kind and compassionate.  They all care very much for the people that come here and love what they do.  It shows in how they care about you when you're in their presence.  I highly recommend Spine & Sports"

"I have been going to Spine & Sports for the last one and a half years.  I have been seeing Tanis (RMT) who is very knowledgeable regarding the condition that she is treating me for and has given me some relief of pain on an ongoing problem.  Also, I would like to say the staff at the front desk are very friendly and personable and are more than willing to help clients.  I would certainly recommend Spine & Sports to any of my friends."

"I highly recommend North End Spine & Sports to everyone!  Cheryl Witter is an outstanding Physiotherapist.  The immediate relief after a treatment is amazing.  Carla Buchanan is my favorite Massage Therapist!  Every massage ends with lymph drainage and I end up leaving the office relaxed and energized.  I must add the entire staff at North End Spine & Sports are genuinely friendly and kind!

“I have been coming to North End Spine & Sports for quite a few years now. I primarily see Cheryl for Physiotherapy and have to say that she is not only a miracle worker, but also pleasant and kind. I also saw Shannon on occasion when a good massage is needed. Whether it be for relaxation or deep tissue—Shannon is great! Recently I was in pain and called desperate to see Cheryl (to work her magic) and although I couldn’t get in to see her that day, they squeezed me in with Virginie and she made the pain disappear. I was so thankful for that they were able to help. Which goes to add to this, on how wonderful Judy is on trying to get me in on my days off that I can see Cheryl. The team is here is great. I tell anyone I can to go here.”

– Julie Funfer

“North End Spine & Sports has been a Godsend! Having been T-boned I received injuries to my shoulder and spine. Physiotherapist, Virginie, has worked through all my tears, frustration and progress. She celebrates my big steps as well as my small. Without her—well, I cannot imagine how my life would be. I can’t thank her enough. Also, the front-end staff are wonderful. Always smiling and greeting their clients with genuine happiness. Thank you for all your care, concern and expertise.”

– M. Choiniere

“I had a car accident recently and the pain in my head and neck was so bad I thought it would be a long time before I could return to work. But my Physiotherapist, Derek Geldrich, at North End Spine & Sports was so amazing that I only missed 3 rotations at work. I was able to get back to normal life with few headaches and no pain after just 6 appointments. Thank you, North End Spine & Sports.”
