Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy (physical therapy) at the Glen Sather Clinic promotes quality of life by helping people of all ages and abilities remain active and moving. Our physiotherapists treat bone, joint, muscular and ligament injuries arising from participation in fitness activities, competitive sport, work-related accidents, motor vehicle collisions and more. 

Services include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Intramuscular stimulation (IMS)
  • Active release therapy (ART)
  • Manual Therapy – mobilization and manipulative therapy

The assessment and treatment focuses on educating patients about managing their condition while progressively returning them to an active lifestyle. Our physiotherapists approach rehabilitation with the philosophy that patient empowerment through education and home exercise programs ultimately contributes to patient success. Physiotherapists are also active in the teaching of sport medicine to students and residents from the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, and the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta.
