This cliché is usually taken to mean if things are going well for you why make changes. So when your friend tells you that he has been seeing a physiotherapist for the past couple months, you stare at his well-built physique, brisk walk and overall healthy appearance and you ask, "If it's not broken, why fix it?" Your friend laughs, pulls up a chair and begins to explain.

Here are some ways you can do that:
Now you understand why your friend always looks so fit and does not complain of aches and pains that plague the average individual. Wouldn’t you like to be the same? At Oakridge Physiotherapy, we can help you get started in maintaining or improving your body the right way. Come in and see us to find out how.
