Minor Illness and Injury

Same-Day and Next-Day Appointments Available!

To help prevent long waiting room lineups that are common with walk-in services, all minor illness and injury services are by appointment only.

We always set aside same-day appointments to get you looked after as soon as possible. You can book an appointment by calling 204-925-5944 or by submitting our online form using the button below.

Phone and Virtual Appointments

Minor illness and injury care also includes virtual options via phone or video through our  secure platform. While virtual visits are a great option for some health concerns, other health concerns may require an in-person visit.

If you’d like to book a virtual appointment, or are unsure, please discuss your options with our clinic staff when they reach out to confirm your appointment.

Therapy and Rehabilitation

The Sport Manitoba Clinic has a collaborative team of clinicians to make sure you’re getting the high-quality care you need. Our other services include physiotherapy, osteopathy, massage therapy, chiropractic, and athletic therapy.

Often your health care team will refer you for therapy, and at the Sport Manitoba Clinic, we have all different disciplines to meet your needs and your care plan. Since we all work in the same space, with one chart for you, the team is always collaborating to ensure you have the best outcomes possible.

X-Ray and Specialist Referrals

If your injury requires a diagnostic x-ray, we’re able to take images right within the Sport Manitoba Clinic. Your clinician will review the images within minutes of your x-ray and, in most cases, give you same-day results. 

Occasionally, patients come to us with issues beyond our expertise or that require specialized care. This may mean we refer you to a different clinician within the Sport Manitoba Clinic or we’ll arrange for specialist referrals, consultation and/or follow-up.
