A little over a year has passed since Adam Summers and Connor Massimo opened the doors of Pulse Physiotherapy in Peterborough’s north end and they’ve yet to take their foot off the gas!
While operating as a fully functional hands-on physiotherapy practise, the duo has recently completed their coursework and examinations to gain the designation of FCAMPT (Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physical Therapists)—say that 5 times fast!
In layman’s terms, this means they now have the ability to better diagnose and treat injures/conditions using manual therapy (hands-on techniques)!
While general physiotherapy is a great way to rehabilitate and manage injuries, the training and experience that comes with the FCAMPT designation offers advanced training and clinical expertise in manipulative and manual therapy, making the team at Pulse Physio even better prepared to help you!
The treatments they have perfected are the safest and most effective in helping you deal with your pain/movement issues and ultimately rid you of them altogether. This all puts Connor and Adam at the top of the class in terms of knowledge in our community in their field!
Pulse Physio—located at 866 Chemong Rd, Unit 2 in the Asta/Spirit Plaza—offers its patients a state-of-the-art 1,750 square foot facility with 5 private treatment rooms that surround an open concept gym.
Your treatment and time will always be one on one with a physiotherapist as they don’t incorporate kinesiologists or physio assistants into your plan of care. Also, there is ample free parking at the front of the clinic and the building is fully accessible.
Pulse Physiotherapy also now provides direct billing to physiotherapy and massage therapy clients who have benefits to cover these services. This allows clients to avoid the hassle of up-front payments followed by submission of receipts for reimbursement.
The focus of Pulse's treatment still involves hands-on manual therapy and exercise prescription that is specific to each patient. They treat injuries and conditions related to the spine and all other joints and muscles of the body. From head to toe, if you have a pain issue they can work towards solving it!
Recently, and as planned, Pulse Physiotherapy added a much needed RMT (Registered Massage Therapist) to their team, Brandyn Fox. The Pulse team also includes office managers Meghan Van de Bor and Nicole Campbell-Leveck, as well as executive secretary Katlyn Grills.
Brandyn Fox is a Fleming College Massage Therapy program grad and has been a RMT since 2008. Her expertise includes treating clients who have chronic pain, post surgical scar tissue, overuse injuries, headaches, and women who are experiencing pain during or following pregnancy.
Brandyn also completed a Certificate in Acupuncture and has her 200 Hour YTT (Yoga Teacher Training certificate), making her an integral part of the dynamic Pulse team!
