We Direct Bill Your Insurance - Find out How
Physiotherapists are regulated health professionals who specialize in assessing, diagnosing, and treating injuries related to muscles, ligaments, joints, bones, and nerves. At FIT Physiotherapy Newmarket, our goal is to help you move better, which means restoring physical function after an injury, as well as working to prevent injuries from reoccurring. We work with clients of all ages with a range of different health issues. Whether you need rehabilitation after an acute injury, or you’re managing a more chronic condition, we can help decrease your pain and maximize your ability to move.
We’ll begin by reviewing your medical history and asking you to perform specific physical tests, such as flexibility and range of motion testing. We’ll then use these assessment findings to establish a diagnosis, and together, we’ll explore treatment options based on your current abilities. At FIT Physiotherapy Newmarket, we believe that client education is a key component of successful rehabilitation. During each treatment, we’ll help you gain a better understanding of your body, and what you can do to achieve and maintain optimum health.
Some of the treatment techniques we typically use include:
Manual therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy in which therapists used their hands to put pressure on the muscle tissue and manipulate the joints. This treatment of the muscles and joints helps to reduce pain and stiffness. Manual therapy techniques include joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, deep tissue release, trigger point therapy, nerve tissue mobilization, and myofascial release.

Exercise prescription is an essential component of recovery, pain management, and injury prevention. At FIT Physiotherapy Newmarket, we’ll design an exercise program of strengthening and mobility exercises that meets your unique health needs. In addition to helping you recovery from acute injuries, a targeted exercise program can help you manage everyday aches and stiffness. A personalized exercise program promotes proper biomechanics, correcting faulty movement patterns and helping you achieve the best physical function possible. Our therapists will work with you within our gym facilities, and we may also recommend that you continue a home-based program on your own.
