Easthill Physiotherapy opens second location

Vernon physiotherapy clinic expands from East Hill location

Easthill Physiotherapy and Acupuncture is expanding. The familiar physiotherapy clinic is opening a second location on the fourth floor of the Sterling Centre and will continue to offer cutting-edge manual therapy and acupuncture services to clients throughout the North Okanagan.

In addition, Easthill is partnering with the owners of Vernon Court Reporters, Stacey and Brad Donison, to offer Vernon’s first skatemill. Skatemills provide the latest technology in sports fitness and are used for a variety of training purposes, including the enhancement of hockey players’ skating technique and skill development, injury rehabilitation and cardiovascular conditioning.

“Opening our second location in the new Sterling Centre will enable us to provide our clients in the region with increased access to our manual therapy and acupuncture services,” said Judy Fullerton, clinic owner and physiotherapist. “By expanding into this convenient in-house location we can help even more clients return to healthy and active lifestyles as quickly as possible.”

The new location features private treatment rooms, a full gym for active rehabilitation and the same high-quality services and treatment that clients have come to expect over the past 14 years. The clinic is known for its hands-on, evidence-based approach to treatment, skilled practitioners and state-of-the art treatment facilities.

“We are also excited to introduce Vernon’s first skatemill, which will provide a more convenient location for the city’s active hockey community to train and enhance performance,” said Donison, a longtime and active supporter of the Vernon Vipers, and a billet coordinator for the team. “Currently the nearest skatemill is in Kelowna so there is a real need to have training facilities closer to home.”

The skatemill is similar to a runner’s treadmill but wider and longer with a specially designed surface that allows players to practise skating techniques on a surface that resembles ice.

Like treadmills, skatemills have variable speeds and inclines to add to the difficulty level. Skatemills are commonly used in training facilities for NHL teams and are quickly becoming more common in hockey arenas and fitness centres.

Easthill’s new clinic will open on Monday, Nov. 20 and the skatemill will open early in the new year.
