Physiotherapy expertise you can trust.



Meet Caitlin. Caitlin Trakalo’s journey to becoming a physiotherapist started long before she started her Master’s of Physical Therapy degree at the University of Manitoba. In 2008, she was in a devastating quad accident in Corfu, Greece where she broke both of her ankles. The next 4 years involved 4 surgeries to both of her ankles, and extensive physiotherapy. Presently, there are still aches and pains that she has to live with, but she uses her education and positive attitude to ensure the best quality life is had!

Her experiences with being at the lowest low, and successfully overcoming all obstacles provides a very unique and special treatment approach. Outside of her physiotherapy practice, Caitlin enjoys travel, cooking, gardening, photography, skiing and snowboarding.


Meet Josh. Josh has been a Registered Physiotherapist for a little over a year and has a keen interest in Advanced Exercise Physiology as well as Exercise Prescription.

He grew up in Corner Brook, Newfoundland before completing an honours degree in kinesiology, and later moving to Scotland to complete his Master’s in physiotherapy. He loves to participate in all forms of sport and physical activity and enjoys getting his clients active and moving as well.

His passion for rural, digital, and accessible physiotherapy services comes from growing up in Newfoundland, a province known for its remote and isolated communities. Provision of services to these areas has always been an area of interest for him, and participating in Tele-rehab services during the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted a solution to this challenge.



Meghan DeFoort grew up in Inwood MB on the family farm, and kept busy with various sports and 4-H. She received her Diploma in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Red River College in 2008, and worked in the hospitality industry for 13 years. Shortly after graduating college she moved to the Ashern area with her (then boyfriend) husband Desmond, and they have built their lives in Ashern with their 3 children, Lily, Kasey and Chase.

Recently Meghan decided to embark on an new career path and joined the team at CT Physiotherapy in October 2019.

In her free time Meghan enjoys reading, cooking, listening to great podcasts, and spending as much time at the lake as possible from April to October.
