Meet The Abbotsford Team

Our History

Clinic Director and Owner Heather Branscombe is a physiotherapist with over 15 years experience in both the public and private sector. As a mom of three (with one child with cerebral palsy), Heather has a unique perspective and passion that drove her to open the first clinic in October of 2007. She could see the need for increased access to high quality and evidenced based rehabilitation services delivered within the context of a team.

Heather’s professional passion continues to be the integration of rehabilitation technology into practice. She has consulted as a clinical specialist to a rehabilitation technology company and has taught therapists, orthotists and physicians across Canada. Not afraid to be an innovator and pioneer, she has brought many emerging technologies and therapy practices to Canada through Abilities.

Heather and Abilities are now seen within the industry as a community partner in emerging therapies.

Often asked to collaborate on research initiatives, she is involved in research projects with the University of British Columbia (FEATHER’s project) and has been asked to be the exclusive BC provider of emerging therapy practice such as the telemedicine driven ReJoyce through rehabtronics.

Professionally, Heather volunteers her time as a member of the Board of Directors for the Stroke Recovery Association of B.C. and is the past-chair of the Neurosciences Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. She enjoys spending time with her husband and three children, running and the beautiful outdoors.

I have been coming to Abilities for close to 11 years now and the staff are like family to me. 🙂 They push me when I need to be pushed, they know when I've reached my limit and they truly want me to succeed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! It's changed my life. 🙂

Our son has been a client at the Abbotsford location for several years. We've seen tremendous growth in his skills and development. His frontline therapists and assistants are motivating, fun, and truly care. As a parent, I appreciate the convenience of having all his therapy services at one location. The front desk staff are amazing at coordinating schedules and organizing different funding sources.
