We're Accepting New Clients


I have been working with Alan Chan at KINECT and honestly could not be happier with the treatments I have received to help with my lower back issues. He is very dedicated to his clients, always writing copious notes and asking lots of questions to ensure he knows what the problems are and the best way to treat them. The home stretches and exercises have been amazing to alleviate the pain and stiffness I had. Highly highly recommend the clinic and Alan if you need physiotherapy as well as Michael for massage therapy!


I met Alan at Kinect rehab about two months ago. I came to him suffering with chronic lower back pain for over 3 years. Simply put Alan has been amazing. He’s extremely knowledgeable not just when it comes to corrective stretches but also provided invaluable guidance with my strength training program. Over a period of two months I’ve gone from being in chronic pain to being pain free most days of the week. I look forward to continuing my work with Alan to build a better, stronger me!

Dr. G is incredible. His movement based treatment plans and focus on overall well-being has not only resolved a shoulder issue that plagued me for years, but has kept me lifting injury free. I trust him to understand my lifestyle, goals, and capabilities to come up with a treatment plan that will enhance my life and keep me moving.

The Richmond Street location is easily accessible and only a short walk away from St. James Park (perfect for an after-treatment stroll). Dr. Gavin has a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation and I appreciated his keen interest in ensuring that my rehabilitation plan fit into my individual lifestyle. This functional approach to treatment has helped me make huge strides on my rehabilitation journey much quicker than expected. It also doesn't hurt that the treatment spaces avoid clinical sterility and are beautifully designed and welcoming!

I had my first appointment at KINECT Rehab & Performance last month, and I can already see an improvement in my physical conditioning. Dr. Gavin O'Handley is helping me work out through low back pain, and Jimmy has developed a customized strengthening program. Thanks to their guidance, I'm finally feeling confident about exercising on my own!

I am very happy with the physiotherapy I received from Alan Chan. I came in looking for help with lingering hip pain that was getting worse. My diagnosis felt thorough and was explained to me in a step-by-step process that helped me understand my issue. The treatment and recovery plan was clear, comprehensive, and tailored to my needs. Alan was also understanding of my commitments to work and other parts of my life and was able to adapt our appointment schedule to suit them. Additionally, the online booking tool for appointments was easy to use.

Had a severe lower back spasm and wasn't able to move for 3 days. Alan helped me figure out weaknesses and helped build a plan to alleviate the pain and to strengthen my lower back. He is evidence based but also listens to your ailments. Very personable and the sessions did help a lot. Highly recommend

I highly recommend my physiotherapist, Alan Chan! He truly skilled in his craft and have a genuine care for his patients. His personalized treatment plans and attention to detail have resulted in significant improvements in my condition. He listens actively and make sure I am comfortable throughout every session. Thank you for your dedication to helping me reach my goals!

Jack L.

I started my treatment for my neck and back pain a few months ago with KINECT just by googling random clinics and I’m so happy I found Alan. He genuinely cares about my treatment and my overall well-being where other clinics I felt I was just another patient. I look forward to my sessions with Alan because I feel like he really listens to what I need to feel better. I live in Scarborough and I make the trek all the way downtown for this! My neck and back are so much better and I’ve learned so much in a short amount of time. I highly recommend this clinic and especially Alan for physiotherapy!

Natasha M.

I’ve been working with Alan Chan on my chronic pains for the past few months. I’ve been to see many physiotherapists but Alan stands out as the most genuine and caring health professional I’ve met. His expertise has helped me get through my pains within a short period of time, which no other therapist was able to help me achieve.

The Concept of Health Goes Beyond the Surface.

Experiencing periods of nagging body stiffness and pain is difficult for any person to deal with – and oftentimes, patients are given only symptom-based care. While it can provide relief, this approach fails to target the underlying issues that are the true culprits of discomfort or pain in the body. As a result, reoccurring complaints shortly resurface, only to receive the same treatment that injects a convenient shot of short term relief again.

At Kinect, we want more for people and their health. We provide our clients the opportunity for resolution. Our health and rehab team are all trained to identify and address the true culprits that are causing your body discomfort and pain.

Why Choose Us?
