Meet The Chilliwack 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.

My Husband has been continuing Physiotherapy at Abilities in Chilliwack after an accident which he suffered a spinal cord injury. From this, he continues to improve with his amazing physiotherapist, Grace. The staff has been incredibly supportive, hard working with him which helps his improvement so much. Highly recommend Abilities Neurological Rehabilitation in Chilliwack!! Very best at what they do, and on top of everything!

My daughter is attending weekly sessions of speech and o.t. this school year. The ladies that have worked with her are all great. They are very skilled in their professions, as well as kind and patient. And the receptionist is friendly and great at keeping everything running smoothly. I look forward to bringing my girl back next year!
