Dr. Rich Trenholm
Sports Medicine Physician, Co-Owner
BSc (Human Kinetics), MSc (Kinesiology), MD (McMaster), CCFP, CFPC, Dip. Sport Med (CASEM)
Dr. Trenholm moved to Muskoka in 2003, after completing his residency in Family Medicine, Obstetrics and Emergency Medicine at the Northern Ontario School of Medicine.
After rediscovering his love for being active, having found an interest in the sport of triathlon, he decided to incorporate this personal passion with a professional interest in Sports Medicine. This exciting field of medicine builds on his strong foundation of anatomy and biomechanics that he gained from completing a Masters of Science in Kinesiology from McMaster University.
Dr. Trenholm's strength is looking at each patient as a unique structure of moving parts, in which movement at one part will affect movements at another. By looking at the human body as a puzzle full of complex movements, Dr. Trenholm works hard to figure out a diagnosis of what is going on and putting a plan in place of how to best get patients back moving again and enjoying life to its fullest.
Dr. Trenholm sits on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine (CASEM) and is actively involved in research in the field of Sport and Exercise medicine, especially with running, osteoarthropathy, endurance sports and management of cancer related symptoms with physical activity.
