Impact Physiotherapy & Performance started in Fergus, Ontario in 2008 by our lead Physiotherapist Ronda Schnurr-Smith. Through hard work and dedication to her craft, Ronda was able to open a second clinic in Arthur, Ontario in 2010. The clinic started with two half days a week. But the Arthur community responded so positively to the Ronda’s services, she tripled her clientele within 6 short months. With the uncertainty of COVID-19, our Fergus location has closed but Ronda still operates a strong small business in the heart of Arthur, Ontario
Ronda was raised on a cattle farm outside of Mildmay and has always enjoyed rural life. Even before she graduated with her physiotherapy degree, she knew that she wanted to live, work, and raise a family in a place similar to where she grew up. With Arthur’s good natured patrons and their strong sense of Community, it was here where Ronda decided to set up shop. Ronda is very active in the community, helping out with the Christmas Festival and other Community Events. She is also partnered with Mount Forest Chiropractic to bring more vital health care services to the North Wellington Community.
Ronda is a Registered Physiotherapist and holds a Certificate in Sport Physiotherapy. Ronda graduated with an Honours Undergraduate degree with distinction from the University of Western Ontario and then went on to complete a Clinical Masters degree in Physiotherapy from McMaster University. She holds a professional appointment with McMaster University in the School of Rehabilitation Sciences as an Assistant Clinical Professor (adjunct) in the Physiotherapy Program and is committed to providing quality, evidence-informed, client-focused physiotherapy care to any and all clients who came into my office.
Also employed at Impact Physiotherapy & Performance is our Registered Kinesiologist Brayden. He is a graduate from the Honours Bachelor of Kinesiology program at Wilfrid Laurier University. He focuses on treating WSIB, post-operative rehabilitation and general strengthening or complex personal training at our clinic. He is a former Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach for Varsity sports teams at Wilfrid Laurier University. He is also very active with On-Field Medical coverage for sports games in the Guelph and Wellington Area.
