Trillium Sports Medicine offers the most comprehensive services available for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal joint dysfunction and other ailments. We use only the latest modalities to ensure that patients are receiving the appropriate care that will speed their recovery time and allow them to return to a normal lifestyle. Our highly qualified staff works closely together to integrate the treatment with a wide range of disciplines for optimum effectiveness.

Chiropractic is a health care system that focuses on the structure of the body. Maintaining proper body structure can help the body function well. In addition, the science of chiropractic is founded on the principle that the body has an inherent ability to stay well. We try to enhance that ability by optimizing the body’s structure, especially at the spine and extremities.

Because chiropractic treatments are primarily applied to the spinal region, many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only back and neck ailments. While we do eliminate back and neck pain quickly and effectively, our objective is restore and optimize human health.

Our highly trained chiropractors are skilled in many diverse methods.

Our physical therapists are highly skilled in the areas of orthopedic rehabilitation and sports medicine injuries. Treating patients of all ages, we utilize the latest modalities such as electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, heat and ice therapy and therapeutic exercise.

Our practice is among the first in the area to invest in the LCT-1000 Deep Tissue Therapy Laser from LiteCure, LLC. Drug-free pain relief is the goal for most of us. Now we can offer you a non-surgical option that truly has the power to eliminate or significantly reduce your pain. Five to ten brief treatments with this powerful laser is all it takes to realize life-changing results. The LCT-1000 works by flooding the tissue with photons, energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain. Treatments take a few minutes and there is no discomfort. This non-invasive therapy has shown long-lasting results.

At Trillium Sport Medicine, we use CRYO-T Elephant local cryotherapy to envelope the body with liquid nitrogen vapour at -120C and -160C for ~0.5 to 3 minutes, a process that has many benefits with little discomfort. The body reacts to the extreme cold by redirecting the blood flow from the superficial vessels to the core. Once the treatment is completed, the body begins to warm itself, sending up to four times the normal amount of oxygen to the vessels and releasing b-endorphins which acts like morphine to reduce the pain in the body and create a sense of euphoria.
Whole body cryotherapy has many benefits such as increased metabolism, anti-inflammatory response, and relaxation of muscles. It is also used to treat:
  • Mental health, stress and anxiety, improving overall sense of well being
  • Improve pain in joints and muscles
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Improves condition of hair, skin, and nails. Reduces cellulite
  • Increases energy
Our experts at Trillium Sports Medicine will walk you through the cryotherapy process to find your comfort level and address all of your concerns and needs.

Keep Your Posture Up and It Will Never Let You Down.

Dr. Spagnoli, now known as “The Posture Doctor,” utilizes a specific program targeted to improve posture and function.

The human body craves alignment. When we are properly aligned, our bones and muscles support our weight, reducing effort and strain. With proper posture, we feel healthier and look younger. Scientifically, with proper posture, the body experiences improved lung capacity among other organ functions. Our patients who have participated in Dr. Spagnoli’s Posture Power program have noticeably improved posture and walk with confidence and grace.

Our licensed massage therapists are trained in providing Swedish, deep tissue and sports massage techniques.

Deep tissue massage is a technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscular tissue. The aim is to release chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the affected areas. When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscular tissue. Because many toxins are released during a deep tissue massage, it is important to drink plenty of water after a deep tissue massage.

We carry a full line of Metagenics products and are experienced in providing nutritional counseling and weight loss programs.

The Graston Technique incorporates a patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization treatment that enables clinicians to detect and treat scar tissue and other soft tissue restrictions that interfere with sports performance, general mobility, and overall comfort. These problems typically develop after injuries or surgery. The technique utilizes special, non-invasive stainless steel tools to break up the scar tissue and smooth the flesh underneath. These tools are shaped for use with specific areas of the body, such as the legs, and are drawn across problem areas to provide the doctor with the needed leverage without causing damage. Patients report decreased pain and inflammation as well as improved mobility.

As we age, hormone levels decline in all people. Hormones are molecules that are released into the bloodstream and exert biochemical effects on target cells that affect every organ in the body. All functions of the body depend on optimal hormone levels, including the reproductive, immune, cardiovascular and metabolic systems.

Acupuncture works by stimulating or repressing the autonomic nervous system in various ways. There is evidence that stimulation of the skin can affect internal organs by means of nerve reflex pathways. One theory is that acupuncture stimulates the release of natural pain-relieving chemicals called endorphins. Another is that it stimulates the pituitary gland, which in turn stimulates the adrenal gland to release anti-inflammatory chemicals.

Acupuncture and Electro-acupuncture are used for the treatment of many ailments, including headaches, neck pain, migraines, nausea, osteoarthritis of the knee, asthma, symptoms of fibromyalgia, insomnia, smoking cessation, drug addiction and irritable bowel syndrome.
