Default Physiotherapy in Calgary - Recommendations

I need to get physiotherapy on my wrist after damaging the ligaments while learning to snowboard!
I am based in SE Calgary, but willing to go anywhere in the City, so if anyone can recommend a therapist/centre I would greatly appreciate it.
TIA, Tanya

I went to physio at the downtown sports clinic, in TD Square. I saw Morgan Allen, who seemed knowledgable and fixed me, so I'd happily recommend her.

She's the only physio I have been to though, so I have nothing to compare her against.

I can really recommend my physio. But he's based in the far NW

Now I had no luck with physio when I had it for my back. Same with the chiro.

Basically I got the impression that because the original injury was obtained in the UK the physio's were not all that interested. and because it was basically a soft tissue prob by the time I cameover here (muscles/tendons/ligaments/fascia) the chiro could do no good as they manipulate bones.

Took years to sort out in the end but it was once I started school that it was eventually sorted.

Only prob is that the original injury is over 5 years old so is likely to take just as long to "fix". it IS getting better though

Thanks for the info people.

Managed to get in with Horizon on 130th Ave. Will see how that goes. If it takes them as long to fix me as it took the doctors to work out what I had actually done, I may have a usable hand by this time next year

Tower Physiohttp://www.towerphysio.ca

Super good. Very sports focused, one of the partners worked as a physio for Cirque Du Soleil for a number of years. I would strongly recommend them.
