Do I need a doctor's note to see a physiotherapist?

  • No doctor's note is required.  However, some extended benefit plans request one in order to be reimbursed.  Check with your extended benefit plan to confirm.

Is physiotherapy covered by Alberta Health Services (Alberta health care)?

  • Sexsmith Physiotherapy does not currently have a contract with Alberta Health Services so there is no coverage through your Alberta Health Care. 
  • Injuries sustained in motor vehicle collisions may be covered by your vehicle insurance. 
  • Many employers provide their employees with extended health benefits.  Each employee benefit plan is different, check with your insurer to determine what coverage is available to you.  We are able to directly bill a number of insurance companies.

What do I need to know before coming to my first assessment?

  • The initial assessment is typically longer than a regular treatment session - usually about 40 minutes. 
  • There is a registration and consent form to be filled out prior to the assessment - please arrive 15 minutes prior to your assessment time.
  • The physiotherapist may require you to remove articles of clothing in order to properly assess.  Please bring shorts and a tank top or clothing will be provided.
