Southern Alberta Shoulder Care clinic (SASCC)

Providing you specialized shoulder care

We have six clinics in Calgary providing shoulder care. Lifemark has collaborated with Dr. Richard Boorman, a sub-specialized orthopaedic shoulder surgeon, to develop the Southern Alberta Shoulder Care Clinic (SASCC). This will allow you to access a multidisciplinary assessment with an experienced physician and a physiotherapist with a special interest in shoulder injuries and conditions.

Together, our team will assess whether your injury can be treated non-surgically, or if you would benefit from a surgical consult.

If you can recover without surgery, our team will put together a comprehensive rehab plan to help get you back to full strength and living pain-free. We communicate with your family doctor to ensure optimal care and a true team approach.

Research has shown that about 75% of patients with a full thickness rotator cuff tear can be effectively treated WITHOUT surgery. These same protocols are used in our dedicated treatment facilities.

Your assessment is free of charge with a valid Alberta Health Care number and must be conducted at the Lifemark Father David Bauer Arena clinic location. We will cover the cost of the physiotherapy component of the assessment.

You don’t have to live with shoulder pain.

Cost and coverage

Whether you are receiving physiotherapy, chiropractic service, massage therapy, occupational therapy or other types of rehabilitation services, most health insurance providers reimburse all or a portion of the fees.

Our clinic staff can help confirm your health insurance coverage. Your treatment may be partially or fully covered if you have extended health benefits, a worker’s compensation claim, or were injured in a motor vehicle accident.

Find a Lifemark clinic to determine the coverage options available to you which may include:

  • All third-party insurance
  • Extended health benefits
  • Worker’s compensation
  • Motor vehicle accident insurance

Please note that for payment, all major credit cards, debit, cash and personal cheques are accepted.
