Make a Virtual Appointment


In response to COVID-19 and the directive handed down from the Government of Alberta, the Glen Sather Sports Medicine Clinic has implemented virtual (or telerehabilitation) appointments to continue to meet the needs of our patients and all Albertans.

We pride ourselves in providing quality, evidence-based rehabilitation and taking our time with clients to give them the care that they need. This same approach will carry forward into our telerehabilitation services.

Telerehabilitation (Virtual) Physiotherapy

Our virtual physiotherapy appointments will benefit anyone who requires physiotherapy for managing and/or treating an injury or condition.

Any change in a person's regular routine can be cause for new injuries. Physical distancing has brought many changes to our regular routines - whether that be having to work from a less than ideal work station at home or taking up a new form of activity to try to remain active. We can provide assessments and treatment to help with the transition.

Physiotherapists will also continue to help people with:

  • general sprains and strains
  • sports-related injuries
  • osteoarthritis
  • injuries related to WCB claims
  • injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents

Therapists and physicians can also provide recommendations for post-operative rehabilitation programs.

We are also happy to provide at-home exercise programs for general fitness, even if you don't have a pre-existing injury or condition.

Visit the virtual physiotherapy webpage for more information.

Virtual Sports Medicine and Physiatry Appointments

Traditional physician referrals are still being accepted and reviewed for urgency (in-person appointment required). However, sports medicine physicians and physiatrists are available for virtual appointments during this time.

Patients can call the clinic directly at 780-407-5160 to discuss any acute and new musculoskeletal needs/injuries in order to avoid waiting rooms and emergency clinics. All individuals will be assessed for urgency and it will be determined whether an in-person appointment is needed or if the patient can be seen virtually.
