Our Approach

We developed the philosophy of Start Feeling Better Today! as both a challenge to ourselves and a commitment to you, our patients.

We want to let you know we are as interested in your recovery as you are. From before the initial assessment, we provide a helpful voice on the phone and a smile at our front desk. The administrative team will go above and beyond to ensure your questions are answered and you start your experience on the right foot. Your therapist will spend the time to fully understand your condition and you will undergo a comprehensive assessment. During this time you will be provided with education and information about why you are suffering and the plan we have to help achieve your recovery goals.

Feeling better today isn’t just about pain relief, it is about knowing you are in a place that cares about you, informs you and has the means to address your concerns.

A successful rehabilitation is teamwork between our therapists and you the patient. We are committed to your success and are excited to get started on that road to recovery.


Our Story

Koonar Physiotherapy opened its doors in February 2008.

Michael Koonar, a Master in Physical Therapy graduate of The University of Western Ontario and second generation Physiotherapist, couldn’t wait to provide a unique brand of physiotherapy services to the Windsor-Essex community. What began in 900 sq.ft. as Michael, providing the patient care,  and Casey McCarthy, running the front desk, has grown to a multidisciplinary, multi-centre, rehabilitation brand known for high-quality care in a positive and compassionate environment.


Michael and Casey are still working hard daily and are joined by an amazing team of 20 health professionals and support staff. Growth is based simply on hard-work, a dedicated interest in patient success and a solid reputation in the community. A proud member of the local community we have raised trophies with both the Windsor Spitfires and Windsor Express, but it is the success in clinic with our patients that makes us feel like champions every day.

Having come in with a hairline fracture in his left wrist, my son underwent physiotherapy. The staff is very friendly and professional. They did not waste time while still maintaining a thorough preliminary evaluation. With continued and consistent appointments along with the at home exercises my son's strength increased by 10 lbs within a mere 5 sessions. Direct billing for benefits made it very convenient. Highly recommended.

I have had a great experience with Koonar Physiotherapy!! Early October I started treatment for dual herniated discs in my lower back. Jordan, Anna and Jon have been phenomenal in dealing with my injuries and slowly getting me back to 100%. Casey and Jessica at the front desk are sweethearts and always willing to try to accommodate my schedule(work, kids, etc.) I cant thank the whole staff enough for making me whole again!!!

Koonar physiotherapy is excellent!! I have been a patient there for over a year after a serious motor vehicle accident injury I endured. The Physiotherapists conducted a thorough examination of all my injuries and explained my issues in a clear yet comprehensive way, leaving me reassured. After following all the amazing advice, my pain is nearly gone and I am feeling incredible. The staff is super and is always very friendly. I thoroughly recommend Koonar physiotherapy.

I have never been cared for from any physiotherapy clinic in the same way and treated like a human being and felt like family caring as it is with Koonar Physo. The staff are extremely friendly and very knowledgable and always there to help. The owner Mike Koonar is always there to assist, his positive uplifting attitude is extremely helpful when you feel your worst but he is there to push you when you can do it. I will never go to any other physiotherapy represented places because of the treatment the opportunities for different types of treatment including Hydro therapy physiotherapy acupuncture and more. Mike and his team have worked together to put me back together so that I can function to my highest level.
