Pathways Therapy is a therapist-owned multi-disciplinary clinic. At Pathways Therapy our focus is on neurological rehabilitation, paediatrics, vestibular rehabilitation, concussion management, and orthopedic conditions. We also offer some special programs such as canine assisted therapy with Tucker from National Service Dogs, an equine assisted therapy program and groups for adults and kids.
Quality is of utmost importance at Pathways Therapy. Our clients substantially benefit from having multiple team members under one roof, as well as access to a lot of specialized equipment, and the extra care of one-to-one treatment sessions. We offer a lot of flexibility to our clients and staff to make rehabilitation work well — such as travel to home/community/daycare/school for visits as needed, pool programs, after school appointments for children, and the use of animals in therapy. Our Pathways Therapy team includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, kinesiologists, and a neurologic music therapist.
Pathways Therapy was founded in 1996 by Tania Campbell and Stephanie Boyd (initially called Active Home Rehab). After working in hospital settings, Tania and Stephanie founded their own private practice with the goal of providing high quality therapy services. Services were initially offered in the community. In 2002 we opened our clinic at 745 Bridge Street West in Waterloo. In 2015 we expanded the size of our current clinic to be able to better service our clients.
With our 3400 square foot facility, Pathways Therapy is better able to serve their clients. An example is the sensory gym that was built with kids in mind because the therapists at Pathways Therapy understand the special therapeutic needs of children. The physio gym was enlarged as well to accommodate additional Cardio Training equipment and parallel bars.
