As we evolve our unique multi-specialty model, we continue to develop innovative collaborative services—please take a moment to learn about several of our exciting new initiatives below. Please note this list is not exhaustive and please check back regularly for updates.

Physiologix Diagnostic Imaging

We are proud to offer Edmonton a convenient option for x-ray, with diagnostic ultrasound and pain management procedures to follow. Please visit our website or call us to request requisition forms if you have not received a supply already.

Physiologix Allied Health Services

The ever-growing allied health services team providing PT, RMT, Psychology, Podiatry, and Acupuncture is an excellent choice. Whether the symptoms are from a motor vehicle accident, sports injury, or wear-and-tear, because the Physiologix Allied Health Services team has PRN access to the Physiologix medical specialists, we have a unique ability to offer combined and collaborative services like the Trigger Point Injection Program and top level diagnostics. Doctors, feel free to direct your patients to our team when the need arises, and patients, feel free to call us or walk-in. Note, a doctor's referral is not required for Allied Health Services, but can be helpful and may be required by insurance companies, etc.

Expedited Carpal Tunnel Clinic

Physiologix is Edmonton's largest electrodiagnostic laboratory. This allows us to offer an expedited pathway for carpal tunnel syndrome. We aim for wait times for EMG assessment in less than 4-8 weeks. We arrange onsite imaging guided carpal tunnel cortisone injections and a streamlined process for surgical management, if required. All of this means definitive treatment is provided with minimal delays and irreversible damage to the median nerve is avoided. The Physiologix Expedited Carpal Tunnel Clinic is the most efficient way to have a clear diagnosis made and appropriate treatment initiated, and this includes the most streamlined surgical pathway available. Our specialists are also well-versed in the numerous musculoskeletal problems that often co-exist with carpal tunnel syndrome and we can diagnose and treat these, too.

Physiologix Acute MSK Clinic

Acute MSK soft tissue injuries often require expert care. Please send patients with new injuries (<6 weeks) to our team of CASEM-certified Physicians and Physiatrists. We aim to optimize patient outcomes from injury (timely and safe return to activity, play, and work—as well as future injury prevention) by providing detailed diagnoses to facilitate targeted rehabilitation treatments.

Physiologix Cast Clinic

With on-site x-ray and orthopedic technician services, Physiologix Cast Clinic now provides comprehensive nonsurgical management of fractures. Our MSK Physiatrists have nearly 40 years of combined experience in the non-operative treatment of fractures. We receive referrals from the RAAPID Orthopedic Consult Line and are happy to also receive your referrals for fracture management directly.
