Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! And welcome (back) to our blog! For anyone new around here, we are Active Living Physiotherapy, a team of registered massage therapists and registered physiotherapists with an exercise-based approach to rehabilitation.
Julie (physiotherapist) and Terry (our business manager) opened Active Living in 2005 with the hope of improving access to neurological and geriatric physiotherapy services in Peterborough, ON and surrounding area.
Since then, the clinic has grown to include a fitness club (monthly gym memberships available for purchase) and multiple group classes to help better serve our clients.
In addition to 1:1 physiotherapy treatment sessions, we currently offer group classes for people with Parkinson’s disease and for people who have had strokes. We’ve also offered group classes for people with mild traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, as well as falls prevention classes. Classes can be a fun, social, and cost-effective way to learn new things, meet new people, and participate in exercise under the supervision of a physiotherapist or physiotherapy assistant. Your physiotherapist will assess your readiness for group classes.
We work with our clients of all ages to rehabilitate a variety of orthopedic, neurological, and functional concerns. This means we work with people with strains, sprains, and low back pain as well as people with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and neurological conditions including ALS, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. We also treat vertigo and offer post concussion rehabilitation.
If you’re looking to maintain or up level your balance and/or mobility we can help you with that too! Regardless of your concern, please give us a call to learn more about the services we provide.
Doctor’s referrals are not necessary to book appointments with physiotherapists or massage therapists; however, some insurance companies will require doctor’s referrals for billing purposes (including direct billing, which we do offer). Payment options we accept include private pay, extended health benefits/insurance, MVA, and some WSIB cases (please call to inquire) – we do accept WSIB cases involving neurological injuries.
Any questions? Please contact us at (705) 748-2008 or via email at email@example.com
We’re located at 5-745 Lansdowne St. West, Peterborough, ON.
