Biography

Zlatko (Zee) Alimpic, B.A Kin, PT, DPT After graduating with a Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy (DPT) from D'youville College (NY), I had the privilege of working throughout Canada and the United States at numerous physiotherapy clinics and hospitals. These experiences, along with my education have shaped my physiotherapy and healthcare philosophy. I'm a strong advocate of manual/hands on therapy and functional exercise approach. I am passionate about understanding human movement and have a strong passion for continued learning. I base my treatment methods on evidence based practice. I do not apply treatment unless there is strong scientific evidence to show its effectiveness. I enjoy the one-on-one interaction and helping my patients achieve their health goals. In my spare time I enjoy being active and living a health life style both physically and mentally. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I believe that key to healing is finding the root cause of the problem and addressing it through a combination of a hands-on approach and functional exercise. I have a clinical Doctorate in Physiotherapy and have extensive training in manual therapy and functional exercise. I believe in providing effective treatment while minimizing your clinical time.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

1. Manual therapy (joint mobilizations and joint manipulations) 2. Mckenzie approach to spinal rehabilitation. 3. Functional rehabilitative exercises

What are you proud of in your practice?

I do my best to provide most effective treatment possible. I stay up to date on all the current research and provide patient specific, hands on physiotherapy treatment. All my treatments are one-on-one for the entire duration of the treatment session and treat each patient as a unique individual.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

Spinal injuries are some of the most commonly seen injuries clinically. Spinal rehabilitation can be challenging. It often involves great understanding of human anatomy and physiology. I truly enjoy the problem solving nature of spinal physiotherapy. Since spinal injuries can be very debilitating I enjoy progressing patients through their stages of recovery.

    This doc is awesome. Actually understands that some ppl want to rehab an injury and resume being athletes. Huge problem with most doctors today is they expect you to "just not do that activity any more" I am looking forward to a better balanced body for my bodybuilding passion.

    First rate help from the very personable Zee. Varied treatment that is working very well for me at a comfortable pace. Great exercises to do at home emailed to me with instruction videos that reinforce Zee's unhurried office treatments.

    Zlatko is a thorough, patient and compassionate physiotherapist. He takes his time to review and explain everything in detail, and to ensure his client is comfortable with the recommendations provided (i.e., practicing exercises to ensure they are done properly). He was very knowledgeable about my condition, which is quite a specific case. The appointment process was easy and convenient.

  • First Rate In Every Way
    Reviewed on May 31st, 2016
    Zlatko has become my go-to physiotherapist. Technically excellent, he is also a first-rate care provider. I was looking for a physiotherapist close to home. The fact that he is "plugged in" puts his services over the top. I am used to phoning my doctor, listening to a lengthy recorded message, leaving a message and hoping for the return call while I am able to get to my phone. NONE of this happens with Park Lawn Physiotherapy. EVERYTHING can be done on-line. I can book appointments, get confirmation and timely reminders (in ways that I choose). This makes getting the physio I need easy to arrange in my busy schedule. That is first-rate service! However the on-line stuff is only relevant because Zlatko is knowledgeable, highly skillful and patient-centred. His advice, help and technique are of the highest order.

  • Amazing service
    Reviewed on May 30th, 2016
    My experience here was great! Harlene and Zlatko Alimpic were both very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. One-on-one treatment was also great and very different to what I was use to at other physio clinics. In addition to this, the clinic was very accommodating with their hours and when I was tight on time due to work. Zlatko was very patient and always made sure I was satisfied before I left an appointment. I also now have a whole list of exercises to help build back the strength in my shoulder. Overall a very good experience which has helped me a lot in my road to recovery.

  • Knowledgeable and efficient
    Reviewed on August 3rd, 2015
    When a person on our path who truly makes a difference in our lives by helping us recover our health it becomes almost a moral duty to share with others. I cannot speak more highly of Dr. Alimpic who helped me close the door on both rheumatoid arthritis and neck pain. He is both knowledgeable and extremely efficient. He has a very pleasant personality, patient, calm and confident. He takes the time to explain things to where patient's brain can work with the treatment for the best outcome.

  • Helped my back pain
    Reviewed on September 13th, 2015
    I had a spinal fracture after a fall. Zlatko was very encouraging and helped me get back to 100%. My doctor was very surprised by the speed of my recovery and how fast I was able to return to my Yoga class. He was very knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. He helped me design an exercise program for home after I finished my treatments. He also helped my son's ankle injury he sustained during soccer in only a few visits. I would strongly recommend this therapist to anyone needing physiotherapy.
