Conditions We Treat
At Trafalgar Physiotherapy, our team has extensive experience and training in treating a variety of different conditions.
Personalized Treatment Plan: The First Step to Your Recovery
Our first goal is to reduce the symptoms you’re feeling right now as quickly as possible. We assess and develop a personalized treatment program through means including, but not limited to, advanced exercise prescriptions, manual therapy, and various modalities.
Evaluating Your Condition
To come up with your treatment program, a therapist will gather key information about your condition. Your answers along with the results of an expert examination will guide us in creating a specific type of treatment program to effectively address your specific condition and eventually, to facilitate your healing.
Adjustments to the program are implemented based on your actual progress, or response, to the treatment until your goals are achieved. We pay close attention to your progress. You will receive verbal instruction and hands-on guidance to improve your condition.
Understanding Your Condition and Implementing Prevention Strategies
A clear understanding of your condition will not only alleviate your concerns, but can also help you understand your condition, to look for and change factors that may be causing your symptoms, and to help you learn how to avoid future problems.
Our therapists may provide tips, specific stretches, and exercises to do at work, or during activities. We recommend changes to help you do your job with less strain and less chance of injury.
As you recover, you will gradually advance in a series of strengthening exercises for the muscles surrounding the affected area which helps patients begin moving easier and lessens the chances of future pain and problems.

Effective August 22nd, 2013, the Ontario Ministry of Health changed how physiotherapy services are being funded. The new model, described as an “Episode of Care”, will consist of a block of physiotherapy treatments provided to patients that meet the OHIP criteria.
The number, frequency and duration of visits offered during each episode of care must be necessary and reasonable for the treatment of your condition. Your physiotherapist will use their clinical judgement and evidence-based best practices to make that decision. Keep in mind, this program does not cover services aimed to maintain an existing level of function. A new referral from a physician or nurse practitioner is required for each episode of care.
The eligibility criteria for OHIP is the same:
- Age 65 or over
- Age 19 or younger
- Post Hospital stay
- On ODSP or Ontario Works

Motor Vehicle Accident Coverage
We direct bill your auto insurance plan.
