“I have been going to Blackbird Physiotherapy: Hand to Shoulder Centre since the fall of 2014.

The place is open, naturally lit, and has a welcoming and professional team.

In my case, my hands are in need of constant care due to the chronic stiffness and bending caused by Systemic Scleroderma. Jodi Dool has managed to help me regain mobility. Jodi uses my input and suggestions to include me in the healing process.

When I watch Jodi as she draws circulation into my forearms, I feel like I am watching a string musician playing a beloved instrument, like a cello. At Blackbird, I am treated like royalty mended with gold. Overtime, together we have been turning an otherwise upsetting circumstance into a life adventure.

Today I have new faith that one day I may have full use of my hands again.”Kim Deane
