Mariola Kobza - Physiotherapist

MARIOLA KOBZA – Physiotherapist

Mariola graduated in 1990 from the Academy of Physical Education in Warsaw, Poland with a Masters degree in Motor Rehabilitation. She obtained her Canadian license in 1991 and co-founded Bentall Physiotherapy Clinic in 1995 with her husband Jacek Kobza.

Mariola’s passion for the profession stems from a deep interest in the power of movement and the ability for the human body to heal when properly directed. As a teenager with scoliosis (a curvature of the spine), she had the personal experience of amazing results working with physiotherapists, which helps to explain why one of her areas of specialty is posture. With a focus on prevention and early intervention, Mariola works with you to solve the mechanical “puzzle” of your pain or injury and get your body moving the way it should.

Mariola is constantly advancing her therapeutic skills by attending post graduate studies and courses. And by recognizing that every client is unique, she learns something from each of them as well.

Mariola and Jacek are the proud parents of two wonderful children, who keep them active on volleyball courts, soccer fields, trails and beaches.

JACEK KOBZA – Physiotherapist

Jacek Kobza received his Masters Degree in Physiotherapy from the School of Rehabilitation in Warsaw, Poland.  In 2006 he was a recipient of the Clinical Contribution Award from the Physiotherapy Association of BC. He has over 25 years of clinical experience in physiotherapy with a focus on arthritis care.  At the Mary Pack Arthritis Center of Vancouver General Hospital, he is actively involved in client treatment, student education and continuing education workshops. He co-founded Bentall Physiotherapy Clinic in 1995 with his wife Mariola Kobza.

Jacek’s special interests include rehabilitation after hip or knee replacements; management of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, pelvic floor dysfunction, ergonomics as well as injury recovery. His clinical decisions are based on physical assessment, evidence based intervention and the usage of diagnostic ultrasound. Jacek strongly believes in empowering his patients through education and using preventive techniques. To this end, he enjoys working with his clients in a gym setting: teaching them how to exercise safely and how to establish good postural or movement habits. Jacek has traveled both nationally and internationally (US, Scotland and Italy) to speak at conferences such as the American College of Rheumatology and the Canadian Rheumatology Symposium. Recently, Jacek has been advancing his clinical skills in Diagnostic Ultrasound by becoming certified through the Canadian Rhuematology Ultrasound Group at McMaster University.

When he is not working, attending conferences or workshops, Jacek enjoys kayaking or biking in Deep Cove and watching his children playing soccer or volleyball.

The Bentall Physiotherapy Difference

1.

We focus on the source of the problem and not the symptoms…

We want you to get back to a normal and active life as quickly and safely as possible. Instead of treating your symptoms for temporary pain relief, we focus on identifying the source of the problem and treat that for long lasting results.

2.

We focus on education and habit / movement pattern modification…

We want you to see lasting results. Our team members will assess a variety of movement patterns and postures while empowering you with education and exercises so that you can reduce the risk of re-injury and prevent new injuries from occurring.

3.

We take a holistic approach to treatment…

We understand that the human body is incredibly interconnected. We use a variety of technology and techniques to detect and treat not only the underlying cause of your problem but also other areas of your body that might be contributing to the problem.

  • “I ‘m an active professional with very little time to spare; so when I need help with my aches and pains I go to the best.  At Bentall Physiotherapy therapists are experienced, professional and dedicated to helping us, the patients, feel really good again. An assessment is always focused on the root of the problem not the symptom and I always leave with exercises and suggestions on how I can participate in this healing process. Keep up the great job, you guys! I’m sure I will be back.”

    Sharon M.
  • “Mariola’s knowledge of human body, hands-on approach, professional and friendly manner has made a world of difference in dealing with my chronic low back pain. Now I have my life back and I am grateful for all the help.”

    Susan W.
  • “Experienced, professional and knowledgeable physiotherapists, empowering experience”

    Victor T.
  • “Just wanted to share with you how much I have appreciated the fine work Mariola has done helping to heal my back. Her cheery disposition and professional manner brightened many of my “rainy “days.”

    Janet C. RN
  • “Most of my family and I have been visiting Jacek for almost 15 years with various sports related ailments. Jacek is the best Physiotherapist we have found to get us pain free and moving again.”

    Strat L.
  • “After a shoulder injury I wanted to give up and curl into a ball and pass my days with self pity. Jacek believed in the benefits of exercise and encouraged me to try even when I felt grumpy and frustrated. He told me that the journey might take some time, but that it would be worthwhile. As part of my therapy he challenged me with 10,000 steps a day, and naturally I doubted myself because it was easier not be accountable. Jacek was determined to stand his ground and encouraged me every step of the way – to have courage and to “stick with the program”. Walking 10,000 steps is now a breeze for me, and each day I set new challenges with tremendous pride in myself. I cannot thank Jacek enough for believing in me when I had given up on myself.”

    Rhona M.
  • “Jacek gave me back my life. After I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Polymyositis and now Osteoarthritis, I struggled for many years with the disease until I found Jacek. He is very knowledgable and skilled to deal with the complexity of my disease and he is flexible with his time in order to bring me relief. His treatments relived me of my joint pains which enabled me to gradually reduced my pain medications. He eventually helped me achieved remission. I’m now off medication and lead a normal life. Jacek is my Physiotherapist of choice whenever I have a flare up for 20 yrs. and recommended him to my family and friends.”

    Joyce M.
  • “My 86 years old mother and I, we are both having arthritis, osteoporosis and osteopenia. We are Jacek’s patients for over 15 years or so, and I told him once that he is not allowed to retire ever! Without his treatments, we would be having very poor life quality. He takes the time to listen and helps you understand what is going on. He is knowledgeable, skilled, intuitive and so thorough. He is confident and inspires you to reach for the highest possible level of physical functioning despite your limitations. And when we talk and joke about his native Poland or our Serbia, our minds are forgetting the painful stretching or twisting that we have to endure in order to improve the range of motion or muscle strength. I have to say that even the toughest manual adjustments are done with extremely gentle approach. Jacek genuinely wants you to be in the best shape you could be. I would absolutely recommend this great professional to anyone!”

    Mirjana A.
  • “Jacek is a very special physiotherapist, my family and I are very grateful to be under his care. I never thought that a physiotherapist would teach me how to breath. Jacek educates about the fundamentals and awareness required to live in your body aligned and healthy. Of course, the process is one of co-creation—his wisdom and guidance and your action incorporating his prescribed posture and exercises. Jacek is a Master at his craft. His passion in understanding the integrated workings of the human body are incredible to say the least. With the depth of Jacek’s knowledge and wisdom in his field, coupled with his presence, makes is easy for me to say, that everybody would be well served to have a session with Jacek!”
