Have you ever wondered why the Ajax, Ontario road signs have a picture of a boat on them? It’s because the town is named for HMC Ajax, a Royal Navy cruiser that served in World War II. I spent most of my early days doing physiotherapy in Ajax, and so I’d spend a lot of time walking around neighbourhoods. From afar, it’s hard to tell but when you’re close up you can see the cruiser on every single road sign.

Why do I bring this story up? Because Ajax physiotherapy has a close place in my heart. I roamed various neighbourhoods, collaborating with different public facilities and sporting events.

The cultural diversity in this town is unmatched by any other in the Durham region. Regardless of the part of town, you’re bound to find inspiration from Italy, Guyana/Trinidad, Ireland, South Asia, and the Middle East. Physiotherapy in Ajax is an even mix between established clinics in the South, and new/young clinics starting their journeys up on the Northern side. With the growing presence of Ajax physiotherapy, there are many options to choose from. This can make it hard for someone who has never received physio before.
