Government Funding - Hip & Knee
Have you recently had a hip or knee replacement surgery? Are you on a wait list for a hip or knee replacement in Manitoba?
GREAT NEWS! The Government of Manitoba has made it easier to get the physiotherapy treatment you need after total hip or knee replacement surgery. If you're eligible for this government funding, our clinic can get it for you.
We offer two treatment options, as you recover from hip or knee replacement surgery. First, our physiotherapists provide one-on-one treatment sessions, to ensure you get personalized care.
Second, we provide hip and knee classes with a physiotherapist instructor. These classes are great for working on your exercise program in a fun environment, and getting to know other people with hip and knee conditions. Learn about our hip and knee classes here.
Both treatment options are eligible for government funding at our clinic. Our friendly physiotherapists and administrative staff can help you figure out how much funding you are eligible for.
