Global Physiotherapy Sherwood Park Inc. is a locally owned practice with four experienced physiotherapists dedicated to “keeping you active for life”. As per the directives from Alberta Premier, Jason Kenney, the clinic is closed for all in person physiotherapy except for clients, who qualify as urgent. The clinic will re-open for regular physiotherapy when permitted by the Alberta government.
Urgent cases fall into two main categories:
1. Physiotherapy will prevent you from visiting an emergency department because you cannot cope with your pain and movement limitations
2. Physiotherapy will help you remain at work doing an essential service, as defined on the alberta.ca website.
Video telehealth appointments can also be requested. Physiotherapy assessment and treatment advice can be provided to you while you remain at home to maintain the social distancing recommendations. Some extended benefit companies are accepting claims for at home telehealth appointments. Two of the companies are Canada Life and Sunlife. Please contact the clinic to receive more information.
The Alberta coronavirus website recommendations will be strictly followed for all staff and clients.
COVID-19 symptoms are similar to influenza and other respiratory illnesses.
Sherwood Park and Edmonton are receiving daily updates from both the Federal and Provincial governments. Global Physiotherapy staff support the essential practice of social distancing to prevent the community spread of the virus. When we restart in person physiotherapy, we will continue with social distancing in the clinic and in the community. Close contact will only occur to provide the essential components of the physiotherapy assessment and treatment. Both the therapist and the client will ensure that their hands are sanitized before and after any contact.
In summary, Global Physiotherapy Sherwood Park is committed to providing one-on-one physiotherapy assessment and treatment to Sherwood Park and Edmonton residents. Our laser and regenerative photonic therapy technology provides soft tissue healing and pain relief. It can eliminate the need for anti-inflammatory medication. We provide education on the causes of your movement limitations and pain. Exercise programs are provided by email and include a video of how to perform the exercise. Whether by telehealth or in person physiotherapy, we are prepared to help you remain active and resilient to the COVID-19 virus.
