Trevor Lai - Registered Physiotherapist

Location: North Burnaby
Languages: English

As an active individual who has played both ice hockey and lacrosse at a competitive level, injuries and rehabilitation has always been a part of my athletic process. Exposure to this at an early age fostered an interest in the world of movement and injury prevention. This has guided me towards obtaining my Bachelors in Kinesiology from the University of British Columbia and in pursuing a Masters of Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney in Australia. I believe corrective movement is the best medicine for the body and is suitable for everyone. I welcome all clients with different injuries and have a primary interest in sports and musculoskeletal related injuries.

When not in clinic, you’ll either find me at an ice rink, exploring new restaurants or cafés. I am an avid traveller who enjoys trying new cuisines and learning about different cultures.

Have had great experiences with my physiotherapist, Trevor Lai. He is knowledgeable and thorough with his assessments + treatment. Also gave me some great exercises to do at home - would recommend!

I started my treatment with a lot of pain in my back and neck. In the middle of the treatment I already felt much better. I just finished and I can say that now I am 100% better, no pain anymore. The clinic is clean, friendly staff, and Trevor is very professional. English is not my first language, so I was nervous if I were able to properly explain my pain, but he was very patient and kind. That meant a lot.

I am a huge advocate to Total therapy locations, if you need to see a physio I highly recommend Trevor Lai. After multiple instances where I have injured myself during the latest soccer season, Trevor had helped me discover the problem, then implemented a program for me to regain full mobility so I could keep participating (within short recovery spans). He is a caring physio who checked up on me regularly and he has carved out time to get me an appointment when I've been in a pinch. Truly dedicated to his work and his knowledge really shines through when I've had difficult injuries pile on and needed assistance/ the best advice to recover quickly.

I am very happy with Total Therapy and the staff. They are very friendly and there is a positive atmosphere in the office.

My physiotherapist [Trevor] is a wonderful, polite and very friendly and professional guy. I have known him for over 2 years and he has helped me tremendously. I am very grateful for all his help.

I recommend Total Therapy to all my friends and family, and all the people I know. Thank you Total Therapy.
