News

Sport Physiotherapy Alberta is pleased to announce a new initiative involving local sport organizations. We are offering courses for coaches, athletes, parents and the general public. These courses will be delivered by a member of Sport Physiotherapy Alberta and they are designed to provide accurate, affordable and evidence-based information about their sport. Topics can include sport injury prevention and management, protective equipment, warm up and cool down and concussions. If there is a specific topic of interest in the group, this information can be presented and there will be Q & A sessions to address any areas of interest. If you know of a sport organization that might be interested in such an information session, they can contact Mercedes at mertxu@gmail.com  and she can provide them with the fees, detailed information and the registration form.
