Welcome to First Line Physiotherapy and thank you for taking the time to read this first blog post! My name is Daniel Sedran, founder and clinic director of First Line Physiotherapy. I wanted to take this opportunity to share some information about First Line Physiotherapy, the vision that helped bring it to life, and some of the things I intend to do in order to create an amazing physiotherapy and rehabilitation experience for you, and every client who chooses to become part of our family.

Opening a clinical practice had been a goal of mine since beginning my education and I am so grateful for that opportunity to have arrived at this point in my career. During the Covid-19 lockdown beginning in March of 2020, I was unable to see clients in person. At first, being off of work entirely was frustrating, but I soon realized that the opportunity to spend time focusing solely on my business and my future was a blessing, and I began to develop my vision with intent. Learning about starting a business from the ground up has been (and continues to be) an extremely humbling experience, and I have learned a lot since beginning the journey of making this vision become a reality. I am very excited to share more about that process as time goes on, but for now I want to tell you a little bit more about First Line Physiotherapy.

I created First Line Physiotherapy as a clinic designed to put you first. From the moment you hear about us, until you have completed your plan of care, and beyond, I intend for each person to feel like they are in an environment where they are valued as an individual. By creating a comfortable atmosphere and building a team with unified values, I want every person who interacts with First Line Physiotherapy to trust that they are surrounded by a community of peers and team members who are eager to encourage them as they work towards their goals. Pain and injuries can have a significant impact on our lives, but knowing that you have the support of a team who genuinely cares about your progress can make overcoming those obstacles so much easier. When you commit to making a difference in your life, amazing things can happen, and I wanted to create a space for people to find the desire and energy within themselves to make those changes.

First Line Physiotherapy will open with a streamlined list of services, physiotherapy and massage therapy, with the hopes of expanding to a more diverse clinical team in the future. By offering these services in the form of one-on-one care, it ensures that you will get the quality time with your therapist that you deserve. In addition, the length of the assessment and treatment sessions ensure that you and your physiotherapist or massage therapist can spend time working through any questions you might have, and develop a thorough understanding of your goals, and how you might be able to achieve them. Additionally, assessments and treatments will be extremely unique depending on the individual, how they are presenting, and what goals they are working towards with physiotherapy and massage therapy over time.

For me, all of these ideas boiled down to the three pillars which now form the foundation of First Line Physiotherapy and its’ values: Experience, Growth, and Community. The specific details about day-to-day practice continue to change rapidly on a daily basis, but every decision is rooted in the same vision. I want to provide each client with the experience they deserve by creating a team and community excited to support each other as we work together towards overcoming our challenges and achieving our goals. The journey of creating First Line Physiotherapy has only just begun and I am grateful for the opportunity to share it with all of you. I am extremely thankful for every family member, friend, and mentor who has supported me along the way so far, and I am thrilled to see what First Line Physiotherapy can become.
