What is Physical therapy?
Physical therapy is a health and wellness option that positively effects the body in a variety of ways. It is used to relieve pain, soreness, and stiffness that can be caused by tension, injury, stress or other related conditions. It is associated to benefit muscles, tendons, ligaments tissues with respect to managing pain and helping in the recovery of physical injuries and stress levels.

What do I expect on my first visit to Calgary Family Clinic?
At Calgary Family Clinic we make it our goal to customize each session to your specific needs. You will be greeted by our MOA, who will walk you through our registration process and our physical therapy services. Each first time guest is required to fill out a medical intake form; which will allow the practitioner to quickly assess your specific expectations and requirements. The intake form is a snap shot for our practitioners to better develop a plan for your appointment, and will aid in future appointments to better target problem areas that may need more focus or attention. Upon leaving your physical therapy session our practitioners are encouraged to offer tips on relieving stress or tension, and a quick conversation on how the treatment you receive may help in the future. Any further questions are then answered by our front desk team who can outline different types of physical therapy that may be needed in the future, insurance or benefits questions, and re-booking procedures.

How often should I be receiving physical therapy?
Calgary Family Clinic’s Total Health program is based on the model of monthly massage therapy sessions. We believe in this model because continued maintenance on your body can help in everyday activities. Regular, massage can help decrease stress levels, increase digestive systems within the body, help with decreasing likelihood and intensity of headaches, speeds up the recovery of injuries or muscle fatigue from sports or working out. By incorporating regular massage therapy sessions at Calgary Family Clinic into your lifestyle, we can help you create an effective therapeutic plan for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension to help you along your hectic lifestyle.
For physiotherapy how often you should expect to receive treatment is patient/case specific and determined by the patient and physiotherapist at the time.
Can you direct bill my insurance company for my treatment?
We direct bill to some insurance companies, however not all insurance companies and benefit plans allow electronic billing. You can reach out to your insurance company and inquire about your plan’s procedures prior to your session.
Will I receive a receipt for my session?
You will receive a signed receipt from the front desk admin. This receipt can be sent to your insurance company for reimbursement. Prior to your treatment, please be sure to verify with your provider whether you qualify for coverage.
Do I need to book the same Therapist for each session?
You can book with the same therapist or try different ones.
