Excel Physiotherapy is a physio clinic in St. Albert that serves patients in the North Edmonton area, including Villeneuve, Volmer and Namao. We specialize in pelvic floor physiotherapy, motor vehicle accident treatments, work-related injuries (WCB Claims), sports and running injuries, as well as alleviating your chronic and acute pain.
Injuries and pain affect your functional abilities. We are committed to providing patient-centred care with an integrated approach to physiotherapy to help you feel amazing. Most of our patients recover in fewer treatments. We’re proud to offer:
Physiotherapy techniques can relieve or eliminate your chronic pain naturally, reducing your need for pain-killers or opioids. Our physiotherapists use therapeutic exercises and manual therapy techniques, such as joint and soft tissue mobilization. We may also use physio treatments, such as ultrasound, taping, acupuncture, or electrical stimulation to reduce inflammation and minimize discomfort.
Physical therapy can help you eliminate your pain and heal from an injury so you may not need surgery. Even if you need surgery, physiotherapy can improve your physical health before your surgery, which will help you recover much faster. Avoid or reduce your need for complicated surgery by getting treated with our physiotherapists today.
Our physiotherapists can improve your physical balance and movement with stretching and strengthening exercises to restore your mobility. Chronic pain, sprained muscles, and injured joints may reduce your mobility and restrict your life. Our physio treatments can safely restore your mobility after every treatment. We can also fit you with a cane, crutches or another mobility device, or assess you for an orthotic prescription, if necessary.
Physiotherapy can help you rehabilitate an acute injury, such as a stress fracture for long-distance runners. Physical therapy can also help you rehabilitate a chronic overuse injury that has built up over the years, like carpal tunnel. Our physiotherapists can design a sports recovery or injury prevention exercise programs to help you safely return to your activities.
Physical therapy can help you manage chronic illnesses to improve your quality of life. Our physiotherapists can teach patients with diabetes how to properly care for their feet and avoid conditions like neuropathy, or patients with lung disease how to breathe properly and exercise to strengthen their lungs to clear fluid effectively. Don’t let your chronic illness or condition cause unnecessary suffering in your life; improve your health and feel better now.

The pelvic floor is a grouping of muscles, ligaments, nerves, tissues and pelvic organs that support your bowel, bladder, uterus (women) and prostate (men). We assess and treat pelvic health related issues, like urinary incontinence, organ prolapse, pain during intercourse, pelvic pain, and others. Our physiotherapist, Priya, is trained and certified in pelvic floor physiotherapy and women’s health physiotherapy. We provide a private, confidential, safe and comfortable environment to support your pelvic health.

We also connect with your WCB adjuster and employer to provide details about your treatment plan prognosis. Our caring team will help you recover from your work injury so you can get back to work.
Injuries are a common part of life. Sports and running injuries may cause sciatica, which is back pain caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve. This pinched nerve may cause lower back pain that spreads to the hip, buttocks and leg. Our experienced physiotherapists assess and treat conditions like your lower back pain and neck pain that may occur from sciatica, imbalanced posture, sports and running injuries. We can help you return to your normal life.
Pain can be short-term or long-term in nature. Physiotherapy and acupuncture are helpful for resolving the cause of your pain and for stopping the pain signal. If your pain is acute, it may disappear once we treat the source of your injury. Acupuncture encourages your body to release endorphins during your treatment, which is why most of our patients feel better right after their treatment. If your pain is chronic, we can manage and alleviate your pain with ongoing physio treatments, while helping you recover from your physical injuries.
Our physiotherapy treatments include an initial assessment for your first visit, and ongoing treatments for your follow-up visits. These physiotherapy sessions are for car accident treatments, work-related injuries (WCB Claims), sports and running injuries, as well as for chronic and acute pain.
