Sports Medicine is offered at our clinics in downtown Toronto. Sports Medicine is a specialized area of medicine devoted to understanding, diagnosing and managing muscle, joint and skeletal issues as they pertain to sport and exercise.
Sports Medicine Physicians are Medical Doctor’s who are licensed by the College of Physician and Surgeons of Ontario. They hold board certifications with the College of Family Physicians of Canada or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada only after completing medical school and post-graduate residency education.
Sports medicine physicians have additional specialized training in the field of Sports Medicine and other related sub- specialties. Visits are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) with a valid health card.
At Rebalance Sports Medicine, our Physicians start by gathering pertinent information about your condition. Once they have a clear picture, they will perform a physical examination to determine your diagnosis and management plan. If needed, they may recommend further investigations including x-rays, ultrasounds, MRI, CT scans, bone scans, or other outside medical services to ensure the best possible diagnosis and management plan is in place.
In addition, our sports medicine physicians have the training and expertise to provide hyaluronic acid injections (viscosupplementation) and/or cortisone injections to supplement your treatment plan and get you on the road to recovery faster. They will inform you of all your treatment options and answer any questions you may have to help you make the best decisions for your injury management.
The Physicians at Rebalance Sports Medicine take pride in working in a multi-disciplinary team and are committed to excellence. They will inform you of the best course of action and specific therapies that will benefit you most and will communicate with the therapists at Rebalance Sports Medicine to ensure you receive the best possible treatment and outcome for your condition. Our physicians and therapists work collaboratively to provide you with personalized care for your specific condition to help maximize your recovery.
