MRU Injury & Prevention Clinic (formerly Optimal Therapy) reopening measures
On April 30, the Government of Alberta announced the
Opening Soon - Alberta's relaunch strategy which allows for community chiropractors and physiotherapists to resume providing care services in the community.  

As such, the MRU Injury & Prevention Clinic re-opened for regular physiotherapy and chiropractic appointments on May 14, 2020.  Additional services will resume as it is safe to do so.

The clinic is following the Pandemic Practice Directive of the Alberta College & Association of Chiropractors to ensure that all protective measures are in place to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19.

Going forward all patients requesting an in-person appointment will be screened at the time of booking and then again when arriving for their appointment.  Please refer to the screening questions below as well as the new clinic measures we’ve implemented to ensure your safety.

See here for more information and clinic measures being taken.
