Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy Services

As regulated health care professionals, our physiotherapists at Trent Health in Motion assess, treat, and help prevent a wide range of medical conditions and injuries. We work on restoring or maintaining our clients’ regular lifestyle and normal activities — may it be at work, at home, or while playing sports. Thanks to their strong community roots, our practitioners have a unique understanding of the lifestyle and activities common to residents of the Kawarthas and Central Eastern Ontario.

When offering physiotherapy for Peterborough residents, we focus on:

  • Preventing injury or illness
  • Rehabilitating a client’s health after an injury, illness, or surgery
  • Optimizing health and promoting healthy lifestyle choices
  • Enhancing performance in sports, at work, or in day-to-day activities

The approach taken by your physiotherapist will depend on the nature of your injury, problem, or circumstances, as well as your personal health goals. Beginning with a comprehensive assessment, we will develop a treatment strategy based on your unique goals, impairments, and any functional challenges observed during the initial assessment.

Communication is a key component of every appointment, as we place a strong emphasis on educating clients about the underlying source of their problem — as well as the rationale behind our recommended treatment approach.

What Are the Benefits of Physiotherapy?

According to the Ontario Physiotherapy Association, physiotherapy provides a wide range of benefits to patients with a long list of conditions, including those with sports or workplace-related injuries, heart and lung disease, arthritic joints, pre-and post-surgical needs, cancer, spinal cord and nerve injury, and more. Some of the most notable benefits of receiving physiotherapy include the following:

Restored Function

Physiotherapy is one of the most effective ways to help you restore your body’s overall function, mobility, and physical strength after suffering an injury or experiencing chronic pain.

Drug-Free Treatment

Physiotherapy is often favored as a drug-free option for relieving symptoms from past injuries or chronic pain. In place of prescribed medication, physiotherapy uses therapeutic manual techniques and other safe modalities such as acupuncture, chiropractic treatment, and even ultrasound.

Personalized Care

Our physiotherapy services in Peterborough are designed to treat and manage a wide range of different injuries and conditions. Given that no two patients will have the same set of concerns, we offer a long list of treatment options and will tailor a plan that personally caters to your unique needs. Our physiotherapists are trained in assessing and diagnosing various conditions, allowing them to work alongside you in your recovery journey and to empower you in adopting healthy lifestyle changes.

Treatment Plans May Include Some or All of the Following:

Exercise is a typical part of all our physiotherapy treatment plans. Personalized programs usually include a combination of stretching, strengthening exercises, stability boosters, and aerobic conditioning.

Our manual therapy includes hands-on treatment such as joint mobilizations and manipulations, as well as soft-tissue techniques designed to decrease pain, restore movement, and improve bodily function.

Acupuncture is used to relieve both acute and chronic pain. Many of our physiotherapists are certified professionals in this technique and adhere to the highest regulated standards for practice and safety.

Mechanical and Electrical Modalities are used to relieve pain, muscle spasms, inflammation, and swelling while promoting wound healing and increasing movement and strength. Examples include hot and cold interventions, mechanical cervical and lumbar traction, ultrasound, transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation (TENS), interferential current (IFC), muscle stimulation (EMS), and electro-acupuncture.

The SwimEx Pool for Physical Therapy, Rehab, and Sports Conditioning is a versatile aquatic therapy, conditioning, and hydrotherapy rehabilitation pool. From aquatic therapy and conditioning for athletes and sports teams to hydrotherapy pool rehab and recovery of post-surgical and orthopedic conditions, SwimEx extends a range of therapy and sports medicine treatments to a broader range of clients.

All clients are provided educational sessions regarding their condition, as well as any important information and strategies used to assist in self-management and prevention of further injury.
