Katrina Therapy Centre is the first and only out patient rehabilitation centre in the Caribbean that caters to the needs of orthopedic and neurological patients seeking water, physical and electrical therapy all under one roof. We are located in picturesque Princes Town (just a cool 15 minutes drive from the city of San Fernando) in Trinidad, W.I.
Using the ADAAG (ADA Accessibility Guideline for Buildings and Facilities), the centre was built from the ground up with the patient in mind and outfitted with modern equipment, some of which are now available in Trinidad & Tobago for the very first time.
Katrina Therapy Centre is proud to offer assessment, treatment and rehabilitation on an individual basis to patients by certified therapists.

Katrina's EStim professional electrotherapy unit uses an electrical current to stimulate nerves and muscles through the skin by providing a measure of pain relief. Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is often used to reduce swelling, muscle spasms and pain in the back and neck which can help to improve both range and movement.
Our stainless steel accupoint electrode is used for manual stimulation procedures where pin-point control is required (Facial palsy or paralysis). This stimulates the muscles that are infrequently used and helps to prevent muscles from wasting away. This is especially helpful for people that have suffered an injury from an accident or stroke and are unable to use their muscles.
We offer a wide range of current types:
• Interferential (IFC)
• Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
• Muscle Stimulator (Galvanic & Faradic)
• Ultra Reiz
• Dia Dynamic (DF, MF, CP & LP)
Katrina Therapy Centre is fully air-conditioned and has 528 sq. ft. of dedicated floor space for land based physiotherapy. We boast of a patient loading bay, ADAAG designed hand rails on all ramps and staircases, grab bars in the toilets, showers, change area & spa room and hot & cold water.
Our Katrina Ceiling Mounted Systems (gait and balance trainer) has a run of 20’ each and is located over the treadmill and the parallel bars. This increases patient’s confidence which contributes to visible, positive results for both the patient and his/her family.
Our 4 section traction table is located in a separate air-conditioned room with an attached bathroom for patient privacy.
Our secluded spa room has a walk-in tub (anti slip floor & seat) that allows the patient to walk into it, sit and enjoy a deep soak.
Warm swirling water offers a therapeutic experience which massages and soothes tired muscles.
Patients have the option of the whirlpool spa (18 air jets) and/or the full hydrotherapy (6 variable speed water jets).
Relieve the day’s stress and tensions with our Swedish and Sport massages which are known to “unlock” the tightness in the muscle tissues and ease common painful conditions including joint and circulatory problems.
