What is Active Physiotherapy?

“You can’t put fitness on dysfunction” – Gray Cook (Physiotherapist)


Has pain stopped you from performing a workout or getting the results that you want? Did you ever think that your posture, core weakness or lack of flexibility could inhibit muscle gain? Physiotherapy is much more than just helping you when you’re injured but, PREVENTING you from getting injured!


The common question I get asked is how is personal training different from active physiotherapy? Here at ActiveLife Rehab and Wellness we are firm believers that in order to get better you have to move! Active physiotherapy focuses on stabilizing your joints, functional movements and promoting full range of motion by doing active exercises. Aside from stretching, strengthening is necessary to correct muscle imbalances.


Therefore, assess what your health goals are. If it is to lose weight or perform better in your Tuesday night hockey league, the team at ActiveLife can help you with preventing injury so you can continue your workouts pain free.  We can help you increase your flexibility to obtain full range of motion for effective muscle recruitment.


How to get started:


Book a complimentary 15 minute assessment to discuss how we can help you achieve your health goals.
