Your Neighbourhood Physiotherapy AND HIGH PERFORMANCE TRAINING CENTER
Capital Physiotherapy & Athletic Performance was born out of necessity. Facing a landscape of clinics that required groupthink of their employees, including recommending treatments that they knew would not be beneficial to their clients, the CP team knew that Ottawa needed something different.
Started in 2015, CP combines physiotherapy and athletic training under one roof from two professionals who have a shared passion for research and education. Breaking free from the restrictions at other clinics that preached a “quantity over quality” ethos, the CP team set out to foster a community of people who wanted to find a partner in their health journey – not just another trainer or physiotherapist that would hook them up to a machine and walk away.
We strive towards providing exceptional, personalized physiotherapy and athletic training. Our mission is to empower our clients with knowledge, tools and resources to enable them to improve their health and participate in sports and everyday activities at their highest potential while preventing future injury.

What makes us different?
Quality Time is Key
Our practice prides itself in our clients’ trust, comfort and improvement. The key in achieving the above is to spend quality time with our clients in order to provide the care and tools they need. The most prevalent business practice in our industry is to get as many people in and out the door as fast as possible in order to serve more clients. Not here. We value our time with our clients. At CP, there’s no need to rush.
A ‘No Gimmicks’ Approach
Our philosophy at Capital Physiotherapy in Orleans is grounded in the belief that treatment should be exclusively 1-on-1 and driven by a “hands on” and active approach. This means that we won’t hook you up to a machine and leave you unattended, or give you a cookie-cutter training program. We believe in utilizing proven physiotherapy and training techniques that require our staff to be actively involved in your process. We’ll journey with you to regain control of and maximize your physical well-being.

“Highly recommend! Abed & Ismail are very professional, knowledgeable, and have great personal skills that transfer to a great rehabilitation experience. They both do an incredible job in creating a realistic and personal rehab plan specific to your goals & needs. After going to Capital Physiotherapy for ACL rehabilitation i’ll continue to recommend them to all my family & friends.“
“Ish is a pro’s pro! Knowledge, professional and extremely helpful. He listens to understand the desired goals and give his input based on his wealth of experience. His first and foremost priority is the athlete and he won’t compromise that focus. My daughter was blessed to have him as her kinesiologist and strength and conditioning coach. I highly recommend his services!“
“Truly exceptional service! In my experience, what makes Capital Physio truly unique is the effort they made not only to understand the issues with my shoulder but also to explain in painstaking detail the likely causes and what needed to be done to resolve them. I felt they were really invested in my recovery and showed a tremendous level of care and empathy. Highly recommend!”
“Ish has been training our son as a competitive athlete for a few months now. The improvement in his range of motion, strength and adility is staggering! Ish tailors his workouts to suit the athlete, not just the sport! We are very happy with the progreas made so far and plan to work with him long term! Thanks for everything!”
“My 17 year-old son went to CP last winter after injuring his back playing basketball. I was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of his therapist (Abed) and through treatment and exercise, my son was back on the court within a couple of weeks. When I suffered a back strain myself later in the year I went to the clinic for treatment and was again very satisfied with the quality of care I received. I highly recommend CP for any kind of rehabilitative treatment.”
“By far one of the best, most thorough and caring physiotherapy experiences I have ever experienced! Abed is welcoming, extensive in his knowledge and program planning, and very detailed in his delivery. He takes his time explaining everything and is always so encouraging through the whole process. Results and progress came fast too! HIGHLY recommended!”
“Abed is amazing at what he does. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Taking time to explain things in a way that made me understand WHY I was in pain and how to correct it. There is no where else I would go to get Physio.”
“Ish has a serious depth of knowledge, allowing him to create a customized training program for our daughter that was excellent. He also has a great passion for sport and is able to connect with athletes very well…. all combined, Ish is someone we would highly recommend!”
