Is physiotherapy for Me?
Sometimes it helps to know more about physiotherapy before taking the jump to book a treatment. Please feel free to contact mdkPHYSIO. No-obligation consultations are available. You can talk with a physiotherapist over the phone or through video conferencing.
Online booking, direct billing and treatment without leaving your home.
High standard of one-on-one physiotherapy care in the convenience of your home.
Standard Mobile Physiotherapy Fees
Our fees are very similar, if not identical to many physiotherapy clinics.
Duration: 60 minutes. The initial assessment provides us with the much needed time to assess and develop a treatment plan for any new issue. If you have not been seen before for this particular problem, then this is how we get started.
Duration: 30 minutes. This is for follow-up appointments, after we have performed the initial assessment.
Duration: 45 minutes. Only select this if we have discussed this in advance. This option is for anyone requiring an extended treatment period. Most treatments can be performed within the 30-minute time-frame; however, some treatments may require additional time (ie. treatment of multiple body areas, full review of a big exercise program).
Duration: 45 minutes. This option is if you have been seen for this issue before, but it has been over 1-year. Some extra-time is needed to re-assess the issue.
Currently not accepting: ACTIVE Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) OR Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) Patients.
mdkPHYSIO does not have a contract with Alberta Health Services (AHS) to provide physiotherapy. Patient's seeking care under AHS funding (ie. post-operation treatment) are unable to use their appointments through mdkPHYSIO.
Assessment and treatment time begins once the appointment is in your home and the physiotherapist is ready to go. Time bringing the treatment table and other equipment into your home is not included in your appointment time.
We require a space of about 8 feet x 6 feet for the treatment table and for the physiotherapist to work around it. The treatment can be performed in many different areas of a home, as long as the space is there.
This works fine! You can call or text message Mike at (587) 583-4535, and we can make the appointment times closer together than what you see in the online booking. If you want to reserve your spots, you can book two separate appointments (back-to-back) and contact Mike as soon as possible.
Please note: We are unable to change fees/pricing under any circumstances; physiotherapy fee schedules are regulated by the College of Physiotherapists.
If you have a friend who lives within the service area, Mike will gladly see you at their home if they will open it up for the treatment.
There is an option within the intake form to provide me with a different address.
Physiotherapists can provide many different types of interventions. You can read more about it in the "How Can We Help You?" section.
You work together with the physiotherapist to decide on a treatment that works best for you. The physiotherapist will recommend a treatment based on their assessment findings, and their recommendations are individualized to your injury (if you have one) and your goals.
Most appointments include the following, to varying degrees:
- Physical assessment: Even after your initial assessment, we have to continue to check things.
- "Hands-on" care if you are in pain or discomfort and are comfortable with some of our treatment techniques.
- Therapeutic exercise: We almost always have some sort of exercise for you to perform.
- Education: This is a very important part of treatment. We promote questions and love to provide the most up-to-date answers.
- Treatment plan: We need to develop a plan of how we are going to accomplish the task(s) at hand.
Hopefully that gives you a general idea of what is included. If you have any questions, please contact mdkPHYSIO!
Your physiotherapist has a professional treatment table and an equipment bag with all the tools required to perform the listed services.
Smaller exercise equipment is usually on-hand at the appointment and is for sale, if you require it. Larger equipment is brought in if needed and some equipment is available for sale online only.
In general, we prefer to work with the equipment that you already have. If you are missing something that is essential, we like to have it available!
mdkPHYSIO is a bit biased... but yes! Besides convenience, providing treatment in someone's home gives the physiotherapist a chance to see their natural environment and any challenges that they may face because of it (ie. ergonomics, stairs, couch). It is also beneficial to see the space and equipment that people have for exercising. It makes exercise prescription much more precise!
