Sports Medicine Physicians are the experts in all things related to sports injuries. Whether it’s an acute injury, a chronic injury, you’re recovering from an injury, you’re trying to prevent sports injuries, or you possibly need orthopedic surgery ⁠— you should start with a visit to a Sports Medicine Physician. 

They have specialized training and education in musculoskeletal conditions and movement and their whole goal is to either help you get back to being active or helping you stay active.

We have an in-house Sports Medicine Physician available by referral. If you are dealing with a sports or exercise related injury or condition, speak to your family doctor about making an appointment with a Sports Medicine Physician to receive the specialized diagnosis and treatment you may need.

Please note, our Sports Medicine Physician does NOT accept referrals for the following: 

  • WCB injuries, 
  • Medico-legal cases, 
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents related injuries

Referrals for an appointment are accepted by physicians, chiropractors or physiotherapists. Please fax referral with a Prac ID to 403.440.6955. 

Wait time for an appointment is 1-2 weeks from receipt of the referral.
