Pure Physiotherapy was founded in 2013 by Joanna Nelken who aimed to create a superior clinic experience for her clients built on her passion for helping others and coupled with her advanced physiotherapy training. She is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists (FCAMPT), which is an internationally- recognized qualification that is the highest level of advanced training a physiotherapist can achieve in orthopaedic knowledge, manual therapy techniques and clinical reasoning. A very small percentage (<5%) of physiotherapists in Canada possess the FCAMPT credentials.

Our specialty is providing manual therapy, along with dry needling, exercise prescription, vestibular rehabilitation, and custom bracing.

Joanna's appointments are short but efficient. From my first visit, it was clear that she has a passion for her work and is amazing at it. I am so happy to have been referred to her. I know I am on the road to feeling great again.
Lisa Tulloch
I’ve been going to Pure Physiotherapy in Mississauga (Port Credit) for several years now (for a variety of injuries - I’m quite clumsy) and Joanna is simply wonderful. Her goal is to treat your concerns thoroughly, but quickly, which allows you to heal and get back to your regular activities as fast as possible. The business has grown over the years, but has maintained the personal touch and high quality care. The clinic is clean and inviting, and the team makes me feel very comfortable. The client care coordinator, Monique, is friendly and incredibly helpful at making appointments work within my schedule. I highly recommend Joanna and Pure Physio to anyone in need of physiotherapy.
