We spoke online with Maciek Krolikowski to talk about the difference between kinesiology and physiotherapy, connecting with patients, and the move from the prairies to the west coast.

We sat down for virtual coffee with one of our newest physiotherapists, Lena Walther. She told us about pelvic floor health, imposter syndrome, and dreaming about post-pandemic travels.
