Caleo Health - Calgary

​A team of medical and surgical physicians, physiatrists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, kinesiologists,  case managers, vocational specialists, chiropractors, and psychological consultants to provide the highest quality of care to our patients through the entire continuum of care.

To handle the challenges involved with diagnosing and treating back conditions, health care experts from different specialties sometimes combine their skills by working together in one clinic—called a multi-disciplinary or integrated spine care clinic. By having access to a variety of doctors and equipment, a patient can benefit from having a coordinated treatment plan and the expertise of several doctors who specialize in different areas of spine care. The idea is that by working in the same practice, the doctors are able to combine their resources and knowledge, which enables them to provide higher quality healthcare for their patients.
