I’ve gotten adjustments by Dr. Ranjbar and every time has been so great, I feel instant relief! I also see Paul for physiotherapy, and my back pain has improved so much. He’s provided me with great exercises. Highly recommend this clinic!

My elderly mom works with Brodie on her mobility issues on a regular basis. She really enjoys his visits, he treats her with such care and kindness. He comes to her assisted living facility which is incredibly convenient. I would highly recommend Easy Allied Health.

I highly recommend their chiropractor, Dr. Baltej Sekhon! I've seen a number of different chiropractors to treat my chronic pain, but he is by far the best one I've worked with. Effective treatment plans, easy to talk to, and is genuinely invested in your wellbeing, I cannot recommend him enough!

Last year I was hit by a car while cycling and was very nervous about where I should go for therapy as I didn't know what to expect. All of those nerves and worries were gone within the first week thanks to the incredible staff at Easy Allied, I wish I could name them all in this review but it would be too long!

Armin has helped me to get back to my normal activity level. I have Psoriatic Arthritis and it causes me severe joint pain and swelling. Thanks to weekly physio visits and home exercises Armin has shown me, I'm able to move around without pain. I would recommend Easy Therapy to anybody!

Armin and crew are hands down the most honest, dedicated, well grounded team of people. I suffered from muscle atrophy after being hospitalized. Armin whipped me back into shape and back to work in no time. I can’t say enough but amazing thing about these guys!!!!!!
