Highly competent and experienced Activa physiotherapists at our Scarborough clinic administer a therapeutic treatment that’s effective in alleviating chronic pain/discomfort in a variety of conditions.

What is Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy refers to therapeutic treatment whose prime objectives are the restoration, sustenance, and enhancement of movement and functionality of your musculoskeletal system, i.e., muscles, nerves, joints, and connective tissues.

As a specialized medical field, Physiotherapy splits further into two distinctive therapeutic disciplines:

  • Occupational Physiotherapy
  • Physical Physiotherapy

 Occupational physiotherapy aims to help you perform everyday tasks competently despite the loss of mobility and functionality due to a chronic illness, congenital disorder, or physical injury. To succeed in providing you with holistic occupational therapy, your Activa Clinics CAPR-certified OT incorporates Mental Reinforcement, Physical Rehabilitation, and Environmental Habilitation strategies into your custom physiotherapy program.

Your holistic occupational therapy at Activa’s Scarborough clinic, therefore, helps you in three significant ways: –

  •       You come-to-terms with the short-term and long-term implications of functionality/mobility loss due to an injury, illness, or deformity.
  •       You progressively learn how to perform everyday tasks despite limited mobility or functionality.
  •       You develop and ultimately sustain a positive outlook towards life despite a partial/complete loss of mobility/functionality.


On the other hand, Physical therapy is primarily focused on effective resolution and alleviation of underlying biomechanical issues that cause your limited mobility/functionality. Your Activa Clinics CAPR-certified PT, therefore, administers physiotherapy that facilitates rapid healing/repair of damaged tissue while ensuring proper alignment of muscles, nerves, bones, joints, and connective tissue.


Note that your custom physiotherapy program may feature both Occupational and Physical therapies, i.e., Activa PTs who help you attain initial mobility/functionality, after which an OT then helps you learn how to live positively with your impairment.

Nature of physiotherapy

The nature of physiotherapy distinguishes it from other medical practices and procedures used in treating conditions and issues affecting the musculoskeletal system.The two distinctive qualities of physiotherapy are: –

  •       Drug-free

Physiotherapy does not rely on prescription medication to ensure you attain enhanced mobility/functionality, experience decreasing levels of pain/discomfort, and successfully cope with your impairment.

Instead, Activa Clinics CAPR-certified therapists employ physical exercises, wearable supportive devices, and manual stimulation of muscles, nerves, tendons, and connective tissue, to provide all three benefits.

  •       Non-invasive

Other than Acupuncture, all other physiotherapy techniques do not require breaching the skin to avail you with essential therapeutic benefits.

Scope of physiotherapy

Physiotherapy, in general, is a medical approach whose scope encompasses four key aspects: –

  •       Hands-on Techniques

The vast array of Activa Clinics physiotherapy services feature hands-on/manual stimulation and manipulation of compromised/damaged muscles, nerves, joints, tendons/ligaments, and connective tissue.

  •       Conditioning

Activa’s physiotherapy conditioning involves guided and DIY physical exercises that help align and strengthen musculoskeletal tissues, which alleviates pain and improves mobility/functionality.

  •       Soft tissue therapy

Soft tissue therapy at Activa Scarborough clinic features a CARP-certified OT/PT administering therapies that promote repair of various pliable tissues, including muscles, nerves, and ligaments.

  •       Rehabilitation

In addition to the alleviating pain/discomfort and enhancing mobility, physiotherapy at Activa Clinics helps you to successfully adjust to living with a mobility/functionality impairment.

This last stage of physiotherapy involves an Activa OT helping you learn how to perform everyday tasks without aggravating the condition causing your physical impairment.

Use of equipment

Our ultramodern Scarborough clinic also features various state-of-the-art equipment that our competent therapists use in administering specialized services, which include: –

  •       Laser (laser therapy)

This therapeutic technique makes use of a focused beam of light to make deep flesh incisions and destroy damaged/harmful body tissue. Activa Clinics uses laser therapy to treat a variety of conditions affecting muscles, joints, nerves, and connective tissue.

  •       Ultrasound

This physiotherapeutic technique involves the use of sound vibrations to alleviate pain and promote healing of damaged tissue by increasing its blood supply. Consequently, Activa Clinics’ Ultrasound Therapy offers rapid recovery and lasting pain relief in a wide range of conditions, including Tendonitis, shin splints, elbow/wrist/leg fractures, post-surgery pain, etc.

  •       IFC (interferential current) 

Otherwise known as TENS therapy,  Activa Clinics IFC therapy involves the use of controlled electric impulses in the management of chronic/intermittent pain in muscles, nerves, tendons, connective tissues, and joints.
