Physiotherapy Clinic



Ola Jiskra

Clinic Owner

My passion for being a part of helping individuals heal started more than 20 years ago. I managed two successful rehabilitation centres for approximately 10 years and when it was time to move on I realized that this wonderful industry was deeply rooted in my heart. I could not imagine doing anything else. I took the plunge in 2008 and now celebrating 15 years in business. I am fortunate enough to operate within such an amazing community and I am proud to give back whenever possible. Along with a few trail blazing local businesses, we've held annual Movie Under the Stars events – a fundraiser in support of our local youth and charity that I had the privilege of co-founding. Generations Physiotherapy Centre is also a very proud corporate sponsor of the Georgetown Hospital Foundation and are involved in many other community initiatives. I live in Georgetown with my beautiful family.

Grace Macwan

Registered Physiotherapist

I am a Registered Physiotherapist with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario. My clinical practice mainly includes a broad spectrum of techniques including manual skills, specific individualized exercise programs, electrotherapy modalities and injury prevention strategies, to help relieve pain and augment function.


I also believe a well-informed patient will have better results. I try to  create an interactive environment for patients to participate equally in their care by combining manual hands-on treatment, active exercise sessions, and therapeutic modalities.


Through detailed assessments, focused treatment plans and patient education, I  help my patients to  return to pre-injury activities in a timely fashion and ensure they have the knowledge to prevent re-occurrence of injuries.  


Other than work, I love cooking, listening to music and reading research papers.
