I just wanted to send out a huge thank you to everyone at Coastal Hand Clinic. I had a nasty crash at World Championships in snowboardcross in Spain. My left hand got crunched and Celine along with Sylvie have taken great care of my rehabilitation to get me back on snow as quickly as possible.

My thanks for the work you did on my hand after my injury. I went kayaking recently and my hand performed remarkably well.

I must say that your sense of humour, the far-side comics and the interaction with other patients was very useful and assisted in my recovery.

This is the 3rd place I was sent for treatment.  Big change in recovery. Thank you so much!

I loved this clinic and the treatment I got, I would definitely recommend this clinic and I worked with Celine, she is awesome.

All the staff at Coastal are wonderful. It is a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. The exercises were varied and relevant to each stage of my recovery. I couldn't believe how fast I got the flexibility back in my wrist. I would recommend Coastal to anyone with a hand injury.

I came away from each session with my questions answered and everything clearly explained. The exercises were easy to do and effective. The staff was very professional, yet took the time to treat each person as an individual. I would definitely come back again it there was a need.
