Chiropractic Treatment

What a Sports MD can offer:

A Sports Medicine physician’s scope of care includes diagnosing and managing acute injuries, musculoskeletal conditions and illnesses that affect lifestyle and performance.

Common Conditions May Include:

  • Acute and overuse injuries (sprains, strains, fractures, tendonitis)
  • Chronic musculoskeletal conditions (chronic muscle injuries, osteoarthritis)
  • Concussion management
  • Pre-participation physical assessments to determine safety of engaging in specific sport related activities
  • Return-to-play decisions for the sick or injured athlete
  • Athletes with chronic or acute illnesses (such as mono, asthma, hypertension or diabetes)

Once a diagnosis is established, we will recommend a treatment plan. This could include:

  • Physical rehabilitation (Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Massage Therapy, Acupuncture)
  • Medications to manage symptoms
  • Refer for Diagnostic imaging (MRI, Diagnostic Ultrasound,
  • X-Rays, CT Scans, Bloodwork, etc..)
  • Bracing and taping
  • Exercise and performance counselling
  • Corticosteroid (cortisone) injections to relieve pain and inflammation
  • Hyaluronic acid injections. Also known as hyaluronate, this is an essential component of normal joint fluid. This "joint jelly" has been produced synthetically and can easily be injected as a single shot into nearly any osteoarthritic joint to supplement the existing synovial fluid.
  • Referrals to other medical specialists ie. Surgeons
