The physical therapists at the Glen Sather are highly skilled clinicians who apply evidence-based, patient-centred approaches. Regardless of the injury or condition, our primary focus is meeting your functional goals - be it activities of daily living or elite athletics.

We treat a wide range of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions with a focus on activity and sport-specific injuries, whether acute or chronic conditions.

Our team is widely trained and we work closely with our sports and exercise medicine physicians, orthopedic surgeons and physiatrists in interdisciplinary clinics, thereby enhancing the level of expertise available to you. Moreover, given our origins within the University of Alberta, our team invests in life-long learning, research and applies current methodologies to maximize your recovery.

Our philosophy is one of patient empowerment, education, and the promotion of self-managed care in your home and community.

We believe the most important 'clinician' on your health team is you.

Game Ready

Game Ready is one of the technologies you may see the physiotherapists at the Glen Sather Clinic use. Is is cryotherapy (cold therapy), which circulates ice water while compressing specific joints to help control pain and swelling. It is an excellent post-operative tool and can help speed up the recovery of many acute injuries.
