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.

Abilities Neurological Rehabilitation I am a survivor of two Subarachnoid Brain Aneurisms. I started Physio Therapy at Abilities Neuro Rehabilitation on Feb 15th, 2018. I would like to share my experience with Abilities because I believe others would also benefit from their expertise as I have to date. 1. Informative First Call: - A wonderful first impression of the company is Katrina. She was very informative, kind, respectful, and attentive. A great representative of the Therapy Brand. 2. Welcome: - At first appt, Katrina sat with me explained appt - papers, procedure, etc. very helpful.3. Personalized Service: - Therapists on occasion (twice now out of three appts) come out with clients in lobby to chat/update family - personal care. Very nurturing, spending the time associated 4. Excellent Therapy Progress & Education: - After just three sessions, I already have improved movement in my hand, arm, and legs. AND have ordered new walking poles to assist with balance and use as mobility guide for partial blindness. Wow! A new world of confidence! Just in three days of use! 5. Physio Therapist – Amaal: - None of this would be possible without the guidance, knowledge, experience, and professionalism of Amaal. She is amazing. When she works with me on a new movement not only does she walk me through it but she explains the reasoning, value, and benefit to my condition and progress. She will also at times show me information or a video online via her tablet. It all adds up!! She will obviously impact many lives throughout her career. I look forward to where my therapy with her will take me. As you can tell, I am simply overwhelmed by the personalized care, knowledge, and professionalism that Abilities Neuro Rehabilitation offers clients. Nothing short of RATE 11 / 10 !!!JUNE UPDATE: Amaal moved to Toronto...I have been seeing Amy Tau for the past two months and my first word is Awesome! If you require Neuro Physio Therapy look no further. I require full body physio therapy ie core, neck, left side - shoulder, arm, hand. A bit of a mess. My point is while seeing Amy she has shared the technics of explanation, massage, movement and exercise to get my body mobile. My progress and changes are obvious and unbelievable to me and those around me. Movement I could not do in 5 yrs I do now!! No joke!! Give her a shot to work with you. She is professional, very knowledgeable, friendly and fantastic! I look forward to physio every week for her to work her MAGIC!!

Amal helped my 12 year old son recover from a rare neurological illness. She explained things to him in a way he could understand and motivated him so much that I never had to ask him to complete his exercises at home even when it was challenging for him. I cannot thank Amal enough for her expertise and kindness. Katrina was also great in helping schedule appointments that fit with work and school.

A spinal cord injury left my right side with restricted movement and significant muscle tone. I attended the healthcare supported programs which helped me initially. I was feeling that l couldn’t expect any more improvement until l contacted Abilities and met Eva. Since the first session l have renewed hope that l can improve. And l have. Thank you Eva and Abilities for your professional treatment program.
