Surgical / Fracture Rehab


  • Funded visits are available at our Alberta Health Services funded clinic locations
  • If it is a recent fracture or surgery, the initial visit and subsequent treatments may be funded through Alberta Health Services.

  • In order to be eligible for funding from Alberta Health Services, you must schedule your initial assessment within the following:
    * 2 weeks of cast removal
    * 56 days (8 weeks) of orthopedic surgery/fracture

  • Please ensure that you have a valid Alberta Health care number prior to booking as we use that to submit for your visits. Without that information, we will not be able to submit through the Alberta Health Services Program and you will be responsible for paying privately for your treatment visits.



Please note, that as of March 1, 2022, Alberta Health Services is making Province wide changes in regards to funding for Physiotherapy Services. This affects all Albertans who access funded sessions for Physiotherapy. With the new model, the same access and funding rules will apply, no matter which area an individual resides in Alberta.

Under the previous Community Rehabilitation Program, limited Clinics with funding in place, would be able to apply for access to it, differing in consistency and amount from location to location. With that funding, we would be able to allocate a portion of funding to Albertans seeking Physiotherapy due to musculoskeletal conditions such as sprains and strains.

With the new model, if you have had a fracture or surgery, you are still eligible for treatment as before. While there are changes with the quantity of sessions covered, it is still accessible directly through our Clinics.

If you are wanting to book for an Alberta Health Services funded appointment for general joint, muscle conditions or injuries, you must call the Alberta Health Services Rehabilitation Advice Line at 1-833-379-0563. The Advice line is open Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm. You will be assessed via telephone and it will be determined if you will be able to access treatment through Alberta Health Services for any Clinic in the Province.
Part of the assessment will include an income assessment. Publicly funded general Physiotherapy treatment will only
be accessible to those who fall below the determined income level and/or are receiving certain government supports.

If you have had a recent fracture, or bone or joint surgery, you do not have to call the Rehabilitation Advice Line and can book in directly at our Clinics.

If you have had a hip or knee replacement, you do not have to call the Rehabilitation Advice Line, and can book in. Your assessment will still be with one of our Physiotherapists however, Alberta Health Services has modified the program to take place in the form of small group classes that will run at different times during the week.
These one hour classes will be available at our Active Physio Works Servus Place (St. Albert), Active Physio Works Kensington (North Edmonton) and Active Physio Works Fort Saskatchewan Clinics. If you would prefer to not have group treatment for your hip or knee replacement, you can book privately with one of our Physiotherapists, as Alberta Health Services will not approve individual sessions.

Should you have any questions, you can contact us at 780-458-8505, by emailing clinic@activephysioworks.com or by contacting the Rehabilitation Advice Line at 1-833-379-0563 to speak directly to Alberta Health Services.

What to Expect

On Your First Visit

Initially when you come in to the clinic, we will have you check in with our receptionists who will have forms for you to fill out consenting for your treatment before you see the Physiotherapist/Massage Therapist. We ask that you arrive a few minutes early for your appointment to provide time to complete this.

Your Physiotherapy Assessment will take approximately 60 minutes, in which the therapist will discuss your case history, the nature of the injury and any other relevant information. and contributing factors. Along with a physical evaluation of the affected area they will determine the cause of the injury and how best to treat you as effective and efficiently as possible. From there, they will determine a treatment plan that will best suit your needs and share this with you before beginning treatment that day.

On Follow Up Visits

Subsequent visits can range from approximately 45-70 minutes in length depending on your course of treatment. The session may involve various forms of treatment based on the individual’s needs.
