The Definition of stride (strīd): 1) a single coordinated movement: Here at STRIDE, we work closely with other healthcare professionals to make sure you are getting the best, most relevant care available. 2) significant progress: At Stride, we expect, as should you, to make gains with your treatment. The timeline in which these changes should take place will be discussed with you in detail. Although most problems don’t change overnight, you should be able to see improvements with specific markers and overall quality of life in a reasonable timeframe. 3) a step walking or running: Stride practitioners strongly encourage you to participate in your recovery. While you don’t need to be a top-level athlete, we do expect most people to participate in some degree of home-based exercise. This is often just a few short stretching or strengthening exercises that will make a big difference in your recovery. They will all be designed specifically for you, so no matter your age, fitness level, or degree of pain, you can start taking charge of your body. 4) to attain a maximum level of competence: Just like in anything, health and wellness providers have a wide range of skills and training. At STRIDE, our practitioners continually upgrade their training to ensure we are providing industry-leading and research-based services. This is something that sets us apart. Let us help you hit your STRIDE!
We are dedicated to ensuring the health needs of our clients are surpassed. When passing through our doors, every client is treated with the absolute best our professions and the varied skill sets our practitioners have to offer.
We strive to remain mindful of and reduce our environmental footprint any way we can, such as reducing paper in our daily operations and recycling as much as possible to minimize the burden shouldered by future generations.
Maintaining excellence as our standard of care is guaranteed and keeping up with skills supported by best evidence in the research literature is integral to our practice. Stride encourages and proudly invests in our therapists as they engage regularly in professional development endeavours.
We are of service daily to our community through our practice, but in addition to this, we understand the importance of and have a very strong desire to give back to the good people of this city through job creation, sponsorship of individuals and organizations, and various volunteer opportunities.
