Welcome to Our Clinic, Body Works Physiotherapy North Vancouver

Welcome to Our Clinic

We are a small intimate physiotherapy clinic that was designed to cater to your individual needs. We treat all types of injuries, including ICBC.

We know your time is valuable.  This is why your entire 30 or 60 minute session is spent in one-on-one dedicated time with your physiotherapist. We provide focused attention on you and your needs and do not divide your time with other clients to allow us to provide the best care possible.

We have created large private treatment rooms to provide you with the individualized care and attention you deserve.  This allows us the time and space to fully attend to you and your body's needs.  We can begin simple stretching and core activation exercises in the treatment room, and provide you with home exercises to help you manage your symptoms at home.

We also have a large gym space with mirror to help progress your exercise program towards improving your function.  We can also demonstrate progressive exercises for you to use at home and at the gym independently.  We often use the mirror to help you with visual assistance for postural alignment and good body mechanics with the exercises.

Our clinic space is blessed with an abundance of natural light.  The natural light and positive energy of our office should help to enhance the healing process. We look forwards to being able to share our space and our clinical experience with you on your path to recovery.

About Body Works

Body Works Sports Physiotherapy was started by registered physiotherapist, educator and avid cyclist Dana Ranahan in 2009. After a number of years working in larger sports physiotherapy clinics where therapists treated multiple patients at a time, Dana had a vision to create a dedicated physiotherapy clinic that focuses on individual needs with one-on-one dedicated assessment and treatment times.

Dana brings extensive experience in working with Olympic level athletes, including at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics Short Track Speed Skating venue, as well as numerous other Olympic level and National level athletes. She also has achieved advanced certification in Sports Physiotherapy,  advanced training in manual therapy (FCAMT) as well as sharing her knowledge through teaching and mentoring younger physiotherapists.

Focusing on sport and active living, Dana tailored her practice to help people realize their full potential and achieve their personal best, whether it is the high level athlete, weekend warrior or the mature athlete with a desire to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. Her passion is getting back to doing what they love. And this is the strong work ethic, compassion, determination and positive energy that Dana empowers her team and patients  at Body Works with to help them to achieve their very best.

With more than 60 years of collective experience the Body Works team is comprised of a group of highly educated and accomplished physiotherapists whose philosophy is to take the time to assess your whole body to determine the root cause of your problem and customize a treatment plan that works for you. We use the most up-to-date techniques in manual therapyIMSacupunctureexercise and movement retraining to get you moving again and back to enjoying your active lifestyle.

Bodyworks Sports Physiotherapy Clinic is an excellent provider of physiotherapy services. Dana and Jacqueline are extremely competent and caring professionals who offer effective treatment and clear explanations of the problem and their approach to dealing with it, including IMS, acupuncture, ultrasound and manual therapy. They have helped me a great deal as well as other members of my family who have presented with a variety of problems. I would have no hesitation in recommending Body Works services and therapists in this efficiently run clinic.
