IMPACT Health Clinic Physiotherapy and Sports Therapy Clinic in High River is a full-service, all-in-one clinic. We provide sports athletic therapy and injury therapy for injured athletes and non-athletes.
Every level of athletes, from weekend warriors to professionals, when sidelined see us for rehabilitation for sprains, strains, and fractures. We begin with a thorough assessment that determines the cause of the injury, and then combine both hands-on techniques and technology to reduce your pain and inflammation to hasten and support the healing process.
Nobody wants to be sidelined for the season, so we listen to your goals. We build the combination of therapies necessary to help you achieve them. Plus, once the immediate injury heals, or before every season, we can counsel you about how to avoid recurring injuries.
We complete a movement and gait assessment to ensure habits are not leading you into continuing pain and causing more injuries. We prepare you for your season or your return to play after the injury, so you don’t get hurt again.
Massage therapy effectively helps patients add flexibility to stiff muscles and joints.
This hands-on therapy manipulates and mobilizes your body to decrease pain and to extend your range of motion.
Coupled with a specific set of prescribed exercises for at home between visits, patients regain strength faster and resume normal life activities.
Radial Shockwave Therapy in High River
Shockwave Therapy is a multi-disciplinary device that speeds pain relief and returns mobility.
Acoustic waves trigger the biological healing effects in your body without using pharmaceuticals.
Shockwave Therapy helps sports injuries to get you back playing your game and restoring mobility from injury or illness. It is particularly effective for chronic pain.
Acoustic waves carry high energy to your painful spots and musculoskeletal tissues with subacute, sub chronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and supports the reparative processes of tendons, bones, and other tissues.
Direct or indirect force to the head can cause a concussion, which creates a disturbance to the brain functions.
At IMPACT Health Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic in High River, we use a variety of tools to diagnose a concussion and monitor the recovery process.
Physical and cognitive rest start the healing in the very initial stages of recovery. As symptoms begin to ease, we work with patients to stabilize posture and be sure to prevent the neck and shoulder pain that tends to accompany concussions.
We work one-on-one with you to guide your recovery and make sure you do not return to your normal level of activity prematurely.

Pelvic Health Pain and Incontinence
Abdominal pain, pelvic floor pain, sexual dysfunction and pain, and pre-natal and post-partum related conditions all keep you from the enjoyment of life.
We successfully treat all these conditions, plus fecal and urinary incontinence, irritable bowel syndrome, overactive bladder, and chronic constipation.
With a specialized combination of therapy and exercise, you overcome these issues and we help to ensure they do not return.

A Team Approach to Managing Injuries

We take a team approach to helping you recover from your workplace injury. We work with your physician and Workers’ Compensation Board representative to deliver an effective physiotherapy program that leads to your safe return to work as quickly as possible.

Return to Work Programs and Functional Capacity Evaluations in High River
A Functional Capacity Evaluation determines when it is safe for an injured worker to return to work.
This detailed assessment of a person’s ability to function in their job leads to an appropriate return to work, or the closure of the case. It is an essential portion for Worker’s Compensation claims and disability claims.
We also provide a general purpose FCE using standardized testing and measures for all workers being evaluated. This is used in situations when workers do not yet have specific duties or functional work requirements to assess a candidate’s compatibility with general work tasks.

Proper physical therapy avoids compounding the difficulties caused by underlying imbalance issues, including a tendency to fall frequently and get injured.
Dizziness and imbalance issues rob you of your independence while curtailing your ability to live a full, active life.
We use a variety of physiotherapy treatments to address the root cause of the problem and solve it.

Our goal is to help you increase strength, activity, and range of motion so you return to your active lifestyle as soon as possible, and without recurring problems.
