    Hello,

    I was just told today by my doctor that I need to go to physio therapy. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on finding the right therapist? Or any advice on this topic in general?

    Also, I was wondering is Physio Therapy covered under Alberta Healthcare? I have a doctors note for it...

    On a different topic...pain managment clinics...does anyone have any experience in this area? What are these clinics all about? What happens there?

    I've heard that we have a Pain Managment clinic at the Foothills hospital here in Calgary, is this true?

    Thanks for your help! :)

    Sorry I can't be any help to you Val, I just wanted to say hi to another Canadian. See I picked a smiley face with a toque on it! LOL

    I am in Ontario and any Physio therapy I need has to be paid for by my private health insurance.

    Hopefully someone else here will be able to help.

    hugs Marion (Redwillow)
