In 2004, the staff of Physiofirst fostered the idea of a city wide food drive. With the generous contributions of our food drive partners — IG Wealth Management (www.investorsgroup.com) and Samaritan House (www.samaritanhouse.ca) and in association with the local Lions Clubs of Brandon and with the support of the Neelin High school student body — we have had fourteen incredibly successful food drive events.
Foodfirst consists of a city-wide blitz by a dedicated group of volunteers. The Lions Club of Brandon supplies drivers who are accompanied by two high school students. The students canvas the entire city retrieving plastic bags (funded by IG Wealth Management, Compass Credit Union, Westoba Credit Union, Fusion Credit Union, and Sunrise Credit Union) which are distributed the week of the food drive to every household in Brandon by the The Brandon Sun (www.brandonsun.com).

Vestibular Rehabilitation is a specific treatment approach to Balance Disorders and Vertigo (the sensation of the room spinning or images moving). These disorders can be very disabling and can affect every aspect of one’s life. Vestibular Rehabilitation focuses on identifying the cause of the disorder, and treating it appropriately.
Balance Disorders can stem from a number of sources, such as inner ear, neck, muscles, or even the brain itself. Treatment generally includes repositioning techniques, compensatory exercises and adaptation exercises.
Rehabilitation Pilates is ideal for a broad spectrum of individuals who are interested in preventing and/or recovering from an injury, as well as those who experience general stiffness and tension throughout the body.
Pilates links the mind and body and re-balances the muscles around the joints to allow the body to move precisely and efficiently. It restores the natural curves of the spine while enhancing strength, flexibility, co-ordination, and body awareness.
