Ahead of the Curve Physiotherapy
902 6th Ave.

Physiotherapist Heather Kerr is excited to announce that her practise has moved to the CrossFit Fernie building at 902 6th avenue. 

The new location is accessed through a side door to the left of CFF's main entrance, with a waiting room where clients don't just have to sit: they can hang, lie down, stretch, or warm up! One-on-one, hour-long appointments in a calm, focused environment will continue to be standard care, with access to CFF's area during treatments where appropriate. Heather has more than 15 years of experience treating orthopaedic and sports injuries, and postgraduate training in needling and pelvic floor physio.

East Kootenay Behaviour Intervention Program

The East Kootenay Behaviour Intervention Program (EKBIP) supports children and their families who have received a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or require other behaviour intervention supports. EKBIP provides evidence-based therapies through one-one, group and community sessions and falls under the umbrella of the Community Connections Society of Southeast BC. 

Early intervention has positive impacts on the quality of life for those within the program. With 97 families within the East Kootenays currently receiving services, the EKBIP, works to provide the best support for families. Assessing new, more efficient and effective ways to implement quality service, while maximizing one-on-one time spent with children, the program is introducing a new component beginning in January 2018. The introduction of Skills©, data analytic software, will reduce administrative and paperwork time to maximize time staff spend directly with children and families.
