Meet RPT Orla Hares, Founder of Gaitway Neurophysio

Orla is passionate about physiotherapy

She specializes in helping to manage symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Because Parkinson’s disease affects everyone differently, she creates individualized plans for her clients.

With patience and compassion, Orla gives her clients the confidence to achieve ambitious goals.

You’ll find Gaitway Neurophysio‘s fully-renovated, custom facility in ANNEX. The ANNEX district aims to provide a space, lifestyle, and culture to support Canada’s next generation of innovators.

Orla brings over 20 years of experience in neuro-rehab. She has worked in the UK, Ireland and now Canada and brings this wealth of knowledge to her practice at Gaitway Neurophysio. 

Orla provides dynamic and innovative programming and research for those with neurological diseases, more specifically, Parkinson’s disease. 

Programs and classes at this new location include:

Other services include physiotherapy, kinesiology, massage therapy, and fitness training. Speech therapy, psychotherapy and dietician services will be added by the end of 2022.  

Recently, Orla has teamed up with co-investigator Anita Saltmarche on a clinical trial using light therapy for the management of Parkinson’s symptoms. The preliminary results of case studies are exciting and noteworthy.

All are welcome to visit Gaitway Neurophysio.

Classes are not just for those with Parkinson’s!
