Who we are:
When your brain and spinal cord are functioning properly, running, walking, and even complex mental activities can be performed with minimal attention. If the brain or spinal cord become injured, every aspect of your life can become more challenging, as your brain and body are not able to function up to the expected level.
At Neurochangers, our treatments are aimed at changing the way your brain and spinal cord are functioning – returning your body and mind to a level of ability that you enjoyed prior to your diagnosis.

Andrew Yhap (Physiotherapy)
Andrew is a Registered Physiotherapist who after completing his Bachelor of Physical and Health Education at the University of Toronto went on to complete his Doctor of Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne. Here he gained experience with an array of different neurological patient populations. Andrew enjoys encouraging clients to reach their full potential, and helping them meet their goals. In his free time he enjoys rock climbing, lifting heavy things and lowering them to the ground, and being a personal butler to a pack of five canines.

Although Andrew is fascinated with the human brain and nervous system if you are looking to get on his “nerves” just tell him how much you love the Montreal Canadiens.
