Finding a Sports Medicine Clinic is not a difficult task; they seem to be popping up on all corners in Oakville and Mississauga. The real challenge is finding a “good” Sports Medicine Clinic that offers expertise across a number of disciplines from well-educated therapists. A number of individuals seeking care admit that their criteria while doing a Google search for a clinic consist of which one is closest to home/work and the cheapest. Neither of these options are good ways to start your health care. If you want to see great results, you need to do some research and put a bit of effort into finding the right clinic and therapist for you.
What to look for in a Sports Medicine Clinic and Therapist
Have the therapists completed advanced training and are they committed to providing the most up-to-date and effective treatment options?
At Sheddon Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine (SPSC), we currently have an FCAMPT physiotherapist and several other physiotherapists on their way to obtaining the FCAMPT designation. Physiotherapists who are Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT) have undergone internationally recognized post-graduate training in orthopaedic manual and manipulative therapy. In addition, the therapists at SPSC have undergone extensive training in concussion rehabilitation, acupuncture and several other manual therapy courses.
