Knee Osteoarthritis Program

Acceleration Physiotherapy’s Knee Osteoarthritis Program was designed for those suffering with arthritic knee pain. Based on the understanding that exercise and strength training can help people manage knee osteoarthritis, the program begins with a thorough assessment and is followed by a six-week, guided exercise program.

Participants will attend two, one-on-one sessions per week with physiotherapist, Brittney Achtymichuk, who will provide each patient with the education needed to ultimately manage their knee pain independently.
