On March 11 2012 I suffered a serious accident while working on the railway, when I was run over by the rail cars we were switching out and my foot was seriously crushed, my ankle was compound fractured and my rib was broken.After the first surgery I was told that the foot would likely be not very viable and I would eventually need a prosthetic foot. However they did eventually save the foot with further reconstructive surgery, however the chances of returning to work to my original conductors job would be next to impossible given the amount of damage suffered and the demands of climbing up and down ladders and walking on gravel and uneven ground.After much wound care to save the foot from infection,(thank God for the nurses and silver dressing) I was able to begin physio.After starting off with Herman at Moveo, Larissa came on .
I received physio treatments every Tues and Thurs day from Sept – June, 10 months. This involved exercises, acupuncture, stretching and message.I could not have asked for better care.Larissa was able to implement the precise strategy to restore muscles in my foot that eventually helped me to recover sufficiently to return to my original job which work safe was arguing that I’d never be able to, given the severity of the injury.
Larissa, was in my court the whole time, stressing and advocating that I was continually making progress and not to dismiss my return so quickly.
While the physio care, message , acupuncture was all amazingly thorough, what I really noticed the biggest difference with Moveo was that while Larissa would push me at times, she listened to me when it was too much and eased off, where that was not always the case with other injurys I’d received treatment for in the past, and would be set back because of.
Larissa and Moveo played a huge part in my recovery, and I’m now back to work as a road conductor, taking on even bigger challenges and even more gainfully employed than I could have ever hoped or for awhile thought was possible.
Thanks to Larissa for never giving up or compromising, I continued to make progress.
I hope for everyone who is injured that they will find the same help I did from Moveo.
I have been seeing Jenn recently for help with an injury when I had a fall and had quite severe edema on my left leg. Jenn suggested I try 20 minutes with the NormaTec Pro Recovery System. The results were amazing. The next morning the edema was 95% gone and the swelling in my left was greatly reduced. I would not hesitate to get further treatment with this equipment. Thanks Jenn for the recommendation.
BMX racing is a very high intensity, and high consequence sport. In order to train and perform at my best I put my body thought a lot! It is no surprise then, that a visit to Movéo Sport & Rehabilitation Centre is a regular occurrence for me. Dr. Jenn Turner and the rest of the staff make Movéo such a positive and fun environment. They have such a wealth of knowledge in so many different areas and are always on the leading edge with research and technology. Before or after my treatments I often use the Normatech recovery pants for a full lower body flush. Having the opportunity to use this equipment not only makes my legs feel great, but it also allows Jenn more time to work on the areas that really need it. Thanks for keeping me on top, especially when I end up up-side-down!

‘Sonya has greatly helped me in the areas of nerve pain, muscle-weakness as well as TMJ. I can’t say enough about her techniques in both pinpointing the root of pain and weak points, as well as her methods in helping to relieve such areas. This is also where Sonya has been able to use her TMJ-specific training to help with my jaw pain as well. She goes above and beyond to help her client’s get to a place of better health. From my experience, Sonya really learns to understand each clients’ specific issues, and tailors her massage style for optimal results. You are in good hands with Sonya!’
I have been a client at Moveo for approximately two years now.

Staff at Moveo are well-informed and au courant with everything rehab. In addition to physiotherapy, massage therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic services are offered. It’s a one-stop shop to consistent well-being – a glowing testament to their excellent standard of care.
Each one of us in the Ride to Conquer Cancer picture, Ric, Brandon, Devon and David, have often used the services of Jenn and Sarah at Moveo to prepare us for athletics, to ease our pain from exercise and to deal with injuries incurred in the process of meeting our athletic challenges. We couldn’t be happier. They know what they are doing and prove it with results.
All the best from “the Boys”.

I’ve gone to Dr. Kim Graham for acupuncture over the last few months, and have found it enormously helpful. She knows exactly what areas of my body needs the most attention….sometimes when I don’t even realize there’s a problem! She’s helped me get over overwhelming pain. I almost couldn’t walk from plantar fasciitis in my left foot, but have left after a treatment with Dr. Kim completely relieved from the soreness in my heel. It hasn’t been an overnight cure, but with her acupuncture “pins” working their magic, I’m confident that she will open up my meridians, so my body can work as it should. She’s a must try to believe it works!
Thanks Kim for being out there and appreciated your work – legs are not too bad today I’m sure in part due to your magic!
