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.


Wondering how everything works?

  • Online Booking

    Book your appointment online or contact mdkPHYSIO if you have any questions.  Please note, we have a very specific service area.

  • Complete Intake Forms

    If this is your first appointment, the intake forms are very important for us to get started!  The sooner you can complete them, the better.

  • Appointment Timing

    Mike tries to arrive about 5-minutes early.  Timing is everything and he tries as hard as possible to get to your home on-time.  If there is anything he needs to know in advance about parking or building access, please contact him to let him know in advance.

  • Clothing

    Mike usually need access to your skin to provide an accurate assessment and good treatment.  In general, a t-shirt/tank-top and shorts are required. Clean towels are provided for draping and protection of your clothing during treatment (ie. he may use massage lotion).

  • Space Requirements

    An open space of at least 8 feet x 6 feet is required for the treatment table, which gives Mike some space to work around it.   Mike brings his own stool! He also brings a large medical bag with equipment and will need a place to put this that is out-of-reach of animals and children! 

  • Friends & Family

    The support of your friends and family is very welcome and can be essential your success.  Please keep the following in mind: Privacy and distraction are the potential issues with having friends and family at your appointment.  There is always the potential that we have to talk about sensitive medical information.  Also, this appointment is your time.  Even if it is just 30-minutes, if your mind is pre-occupied it can be difficult to provide good care.

  • Animals

    Believe me, I love your animals!  Unfortunately, animals present with sanitization and allergy issues that could impact my other patients.  I will also have medical equipment that could harm your animal if they get into it.  Please keep your animals in a separate room so we can avoid these problems altogether.

  • Assessment & Treatment

    Mike performs an assessment to figure out what is going on, what your goals are and how to safely proceed.  You can read more about this at the "How Can We Help You?" page.

  • Billing & Follow-up

    Before he leaves your home, Mike will try to process your benefits and credit card payment (if necessary).  He will also try to get you booked in for your next appointment.  If there are delays, this can always be done afterwards!

Mobile Physiotherapy Fees & Services

Our fees are very similar, if not identical to many physiotherapy clinics.

Mobile Physiotherapy Initial Assessment

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.

Mobile Physiotherapy Treatment

Duration: 30 minutes.  This is for follow-up appointments, after we have performed the initial assessment.

Mobile Physiotherapy Re-assessment

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.

Virtual Physiotherapy Assessment

Duration:  60 minutes.  Physiotherapy assessment delivered online on a secure telehealth videoconferencing platform.

Virtual Physiotherapy Treatment

Duration:  30 minutes.  Physiotherapy treatment delivered online on a secure telehealth videoconferencing platform.

Alberta Health Services Post-op & Low-income

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!
