    Amazing people all around; welcoming and professional. I see Brad Merkley and he is incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, and affable. I see Brad for a variety of muscle imbalance issues and have felt a great improvement in my daily pain … More and physical mobility since starting to see him. I highly recommend him, as he knows certain techniques that not every physiotherapist knows. Brad is a 5-star physio, hands down. The only downside to Core (and my reason for four stars) is the price is quite high. It's unfortunate, because I absolutely believe they deserve the money as they are fantastic, but I also find it makes treatment inaccessible to those in the lower pay brackets who also deserve to be physically pain free. Catch-22. Overall, if you can afford it, choose Core 100%. You will not regret it.

  • Avatar Traci Nagel ★★★★★ 2 months ago
    I first saw Elliott a month prior to my spinal fusion surgery in order to establish a baseline for future treatment. I am highly active and physical fitness is not only my passion but my profession. This initial meeting and Elliott's … More experience working with professional athletes gave me great confidence entering an uncertain circumstance. Elliott worked with me post-surgery to gain back full function and strength. He helped accelerate my recovery which was just half the period I was told to expect. I would happily recommend Elliott and Calgary Core Physiotherapy to anyone.

The first visit includes a very thorough history and examination. He goes above and … More beyond to make sure you also understand what is going on and what you should be doing at home. I would highly recommend Elliot Goldman for anyone looking for an amazing therapist.

  • Avatar Kosta Syskakis ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    By far best Physiotherapists in Calgary! Jonathan is a master at his craft. He very knowledgeable and explains his diagnosis’s, treatment, forward planning with you in great detail. He is excellent at creating a tailored and detailed … More list of at home exercises to aid in his treatments. The visits then become way more productive. Myself I have gone from almost not being able to walk after a knee injury to now running again! The clinic is very clean, staff at the front desk are extremely helpful and their COVID protocols have limited touch points reducing the risk to the patients! I would recommend this place to anyone needing a physiotherapist!

    Calgary core is truly the best. They have all the tools and knowledge to treat whatever you might have going on. I went for MVA and they handled everything for me, all I had to do was show up. Alex is great at what he does, highly recommended … More
  • Avatar Patrick Cloutier ★★★★ 4 months ago
    I have worked with Elliot Goldman on numerous injuries throughout the years. He's an incredibly knowledgeable practitioner of physio who has helped me effectively address a wide range of injuries from sport to poor office ergonomics. … More While the cost of the services at Calgary Core Physio are quite a bit higher than those outside of the downtown core (only reason I didn't go 5/5), the quality of service and convenient location certainly make up for that if you frequent the downtown area. Another reason I'm willing to stomach the cost is because Elliot and his kind and considerate team are not only effective at what they do, but a pleasure to deal with while going through the process as well.
  • Avatar Joy Stuckle ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    I have been a client of Ian's for years and can't say enough about his experience and approach. He uses techniques I haven't experienced elsewhere - and they work.

Tim, Elliot and their team made me feel safe and comfortable from … More the beginning. Their technique and approach is best in class and I couldn't provide a stronger recommendation on how much they have helped me recover from such a significant injury. 10/10.
  • Avatar Neven Ahmad ★★★★★ 5 months ago

    I've been going to Core Physiotherapy for a few months now after being referred by my chiropractor and couldn't be happier with the experience. Staff are extremely friendly and professional as well as make you feel as though … More you are their top priority. As far my treatments with Dr. Ian Goodwin go I can honestly say that I started noticing the difference in my body after the first treatment. I find him to be very intuitive when it comes to knowing what my body needs for it's healing purposes. All in all I would HIGHLY recommend anyone needing Physiotherapy treatments to 100% check out Core Physiotherapy. You will NOT be disappointed !!!

    I went to Elliott at CCP with my shoulders and neck tension problem.

Great professional and he knows exactly … More where the source of the problem is! Great service too, administrative team is very organized and flexible! Would highly recommend!
  • Avatar Brad Sawatzky ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    My visit was for concussion, and subsequent symptoms. I had seen Carolyn previously at a different clinic, and knew I was in good hands from the start. Wouldn’t consider anyone else for PT.
    Headaches were significantly better after my
    … More first visit, and only continued to improve. Other symptoms continue to improve with my “homework.”
    Can’t possibly thank Carolyn enough for her knowledge, expertise, and “magic.”
    All staff were exceptionally courteous, professional, and friendly.

    Have been seeing my physiotherapist, Carolyn, for over a year following an MVA. Can't say enough positive things about the progress that the treatment has allowed. She is knowledgeable, personable and patient. On top of that, I sincerely … More value the greetings and chats with the incredible front desk staff.
  • Avatar Nicky cummins ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    I have nothing but good things to say about Ian Goodwin and Calgary Core Physiotherapy.
    I have various long-term injuries that have caused me chronic pain over the last couple of years and have prevented me from living a “normal” life.
    … More During this time I have seen multiple physiotherapists, chiropractors and a naturopath, spending thousands of dollars to see little to no improvement.
    My chiropractor recommended that I see Ian and told me he deals with patients like myself, that have lost hope of ever recovering. I have been seeing Ian one month and he has totally changed my life. Simple tasks such as getting dressed in the morning I don’t even think about anymore. A month ago it would take me 10 minutes and I would dread it due to the amount of pain it caused. It really is quite incredible how much difference the treatment has made.
    I would strongly recommend seeing Ian if you have any type of injury, other than being a really nice guy, he really is a magician!
    Thank you so much Ian for everything that you’ve done for me, I honestly can’t put into words the difference it has made to my life.
  • Avatar Norman Hounjet ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    Fantastic clinic! Elliot is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares about getting to the bottom of the problem. I've never once felt rushed and I always feel like he really listens. 5/5 for sure.

    I've been going to core physio to get fixed up. I wasn't sure where to go first and found this gem of a place in 2016. The Doctor I visit here is Dr. Goldman and let me just say WOW! Always going above and beyond to help. The … More front of house staff has changed since I last visited for my right shoulder in 2017 but they are wicked awesome. Everyone knows what they are doing while seemingly having fun. I have referred people to this location and have said nothing but good things. This physiotherapy spot is run by an Allstar team and I can't thank them enough for helping myself and friends over the years. Thank you for everything thus far and would give a "Goldman" star to everybody involved with the entire process.

    I've been a patient at Calgary Core Physiotherapy for over a year due to an achilles injury and I have been seeing Alex Loach. I've gone to many other clinic before but this one is far and above the best. Alex is a consummate … More professional and is exceptional at the work that he does. He's thorough, very knowledgeable and takes the time to understand what I need based on my current and past injuries.
    The receptionists are always kind and accommodating whenever I need to cancel or change an appointment.
