At Spectrum Physiotherapy Newmarket, we can help you achieve and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle, whether you’re managing a chronic illness, or recovering after a surgery or sports injury. Our physiotherapists understand how the body moves and how that movement can become impeded. Using specialized hands-on treatment, we restore and maintain your maximum mobility and flexibility. In the case of more permanent disease or injury, our team can help minimize the negative impacts of the dysfunction, improving your overall quality of life.

A dysfunction is often caused by the net effect of a variety of different factors. For example, chronic back pain could be caused by a combination of poor posture, standing for long periods, and using incorrect techniques when playing a sport. At Spectrum Physiotherapy Newmarket, we treat the body as whole, so in addition to managing your specific problem, we may suggest steps you can take to improve your overall health, such as regular exercise or weight loss. We not only relieve the pain itself, but also manage the root causes in order to reduce your risk of re-injury. We help patients understand the causes of their health issues, working with you to develop a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve your health goals.
We use a variety of treatment techniques based on your unique condition, including:
- Manual therapies: Massage, manual resistance training, joint mobilisation and manipulation
- Electrotherapy techniques: Ultrasound, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), laser therapy
- Exercise programs: Stretching, posture retraining, muscle strengthening, cardiovascular training
The length of each treatment depends on the nature of your specific health issues, although sessions typically last from 15-60 minutes. Most clients have 2-3 sessions per week, however, we may recommend more or less frequent treatments depending on the severity of your condition. During your initial assessment, we’ll discuss your treatment plan, including the recommended frequency and length of your treatment.
