With support from our patients and staff, Windsor Park Physiotherapy navigates the pandemic and multiple lockdowns. We are able to continue serving our patients throughout the pandemic.
Windsor Park Physiotherapy is rebranded to LOCAL Physiotherapy.
The clinic started out as Windsor Park Physiotherapy, founded by Roland Lavallee in 1986. Rolly has been a staple in the area and has always served his patients with care, compassion, and an extraordinary knowledge base.
In June of 2019, Derek Purvis and Joe Dyck purchased Windsor Park Physiotherapy from Rolly. Derek and Joe met at physiotherapy school and have been great friends since. After a couple of beers at Earls, it was clear that Windsor Park Physiotherapy had the heart, soul, and reputation that Derek and Joe were looking for in a clinic.
Through the Covid-19 pandemic, Windsor Park Physiotherapy continued to serve the Windsor Park and Southdale communities. With the support of the community and our amazing patients and staff – the clinic successfully navigated this major hurdle. It takes a community to make a business work, and this experience really brought out the best in ours.
In May of 2021, Windsor Park Physiotherapy officially became LOCAL Physiotherapy.
