Sports Medicine encompasses the management of a huge range of injuries and medical conditions affecting athletes, from groin strains to over-training syndrome.
At the Sheddon Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic we have Sports Medicine Specialists who have both attained post graduate qualifications in Sports and Exercise Medicine as well as their specialty in General Family Practice.
Our specialists can help you with the treatment of acute injuries and their prevention, and help you to train more effectively. The sports physicians work with a wide range of other therapists to help manage your training and deal with any injuries and guide rehabilitation.
They are trained in cortisone injections and Viscosupplementation Injections (SYNGAL, ORTHOVISC, SYNVISC) which are done in the clinic.
If Ultrasounded guidance is required for an injection, the doctor will refer you to a facility for this.
They are able to provide consults and referrals for Platelet Rich Plasma and Prolotherapy injections
They are members of The College of Physicians and Surgeons as well as the Canadian Academy of Sports Medicine.
