Registered Physiotherapists Working In and Around the Halifax Regional Municipality

Heather McGirr, Registered Physiotherapist/Owner
Heather McGirr BSc, BScPT, MCPA: Registered Physiotherapist/Owner
Heather opened Health at Home Physiotherapy after realizing the need for in-home physiotherapy services. As a practising physiotherapist for years in many areas such as hospitals, long-term care, private practice, military bases and home care, she found those at home with difficulty accessing traditional avenues, could not get consistent treatment.

This same population were often the very people who needed treatment the most (and often benefited the most from physio intervention). Hospital stays or prolonged illness can cause a deterioration of mobility and strength. Health at Home Physiotherapy staff can help restore previous function to you or your loved one.

From loss of strength, balance, or function to recuperating from an injury or disease state, Heather will be able to help you.
