Okotoks Physical Therapy (OPT) has been serving the Okotoks and Foothills region since 1994. We are the only clinic in Okotoks that have contracts to treat both Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) and Alberta Community Physiotherapy Program (ACPT) clients. Our patrons include the General Public, Athletes, Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) patients, and those who fall under the WCB and ACPT programs.
Our Physical Therapists have experience in orthopaedics, manual therapy and acupuncture. We endeavor to provide our clients with best practice/ research based treatment methods, and encourage our clients to become fully engaged in their rehabilitation.
The ACPT program is under the authority of Alberta Health Services (AHS), and allows us to treat clients who have had a surgical procedure, fracture, or who under certain criteria are considered low income. A limited number of treatments are covered at no cost to the patient.
“OPT” for your health!
