About PainHero

Get Back to Doing What You Love

Improve the way your body moves so you can continue to do the things you love.

PainHero is Canada’s largest network of physiotherapists, chiropractors, and registered massage therapists. With 610+ clinics, 1500+ caring therapists and over 2 million patient visits, we are proud to be the trusted leaders for Canadian communities.

Our mission is to make it easy for you to find the top clinics in your community, easily and efficiently. Unfortunately, there are many clinics that rely on fake reviews just to get you into their doors. We know how hard it can be to find the best possible clinic near you, without being misled or deceived. 

That’s why we handpick the top clinics using our 50 point inspection based on patient reviews, complaints, and patient outcomes. That way, you can have confidence that these clinics are always working in the best interests of you and your health.  

Whether you’re seeking pain relief or preventative care, you can expect our patient-centric approach to be new and different from any healthcare experience you’ve had before. Perhaps even life-changing.
