Exercise is Medicine

Some of our Sports Medicine Physicians as well as our physician assistant, Olivia, have recently done some extra training with Exercise is Medicine Canada which will allow us to knowledgably prescribe physical activity for our patients. The physical and mental benefits of being more physically active are tremendous so we are very excited to offer this new service to our patients.

Ultrasound guided injections

In addition to learning about different injection techniques, some of our Sports Medicine Physicians will also be doing some extra training on the use of ultrasound to help guide them when performing joint and soft tissue injections. The addition of this technology in the clinic will allow the Sports Medicine Physicians to be much more precise when performing their injections with the PRP and stem cells.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Injections

Some of our Sports Medicine Physicians are in the process of getting extra training in the area of PRP and stem cell injections. These new, cutting-edge injection techniques will allow us to offer our patients more options when treating osteoarthritis, partial muscle, ligament and tendon tears and various tendinopathies.
