Activate Physiotherapy is a newly opened clinic in downtown Brockville.  We are locally owned and our Registered Physiotherapist, Steve Craig-Pettem, grew up in the Brockville area. Our name is a combination of our two core beliefs when it comes to physiotherapy: active + educate


At Activate, we strive to provide excellent care for each one of our clients through evidence-base practice.  Our approach to physiotherapy involves active listening to each client's story, building a trusting relationship and tailoring treatment strategies to help each client meet their goals using the biopsychosocial model of care.  



Steve was very helpful and knowledgeable about my daughters injury.  He was able to explain stuff to her in a way she understood and made her feel much better about the healing process

Our assessments involve listening to your detailed history to get an understanding of you as a person and the issue(s) you would like to work on.  From there we work together to create a detailed and personalized treatment plan to meet your goals. 


Our 1-on-1 physiotherapy treatment sessions will involve a variety of treatment techniques including our two core beliefs of education + exercise, but also may include manual therapy, modalities and behaviour modification. We are passionate about healthcare and rehabilitation and love to help our clients with their short-term and long-term goals.  We provide ongoing support and accountability to help get your best outcome, while continually assessing and adapting our plan.
