The team approach is a key component of our patient-centric practice.
At Athlete's Care Ottawa, it's the job of the sports medicine physician to perform the initial examinations and consultations and to request the appropriate diagnostic tests, which may include an MRI, ultrasound or other imaging technique as dictated by the nature of the injury. After a thorough and comprehensive assessment, the sports medicine doctor will then draw up an appropriate course of treatment.
The multi-pronged approach to treatment we use at our Ottawa locations recognizes that patients are multi-faceted and that each case is unique. Various elements may be involved in an effective course of treatment, including referral to other specialists, the use of orthotics and assistive orthopedic devices such as a brace, or cutting edge procedures such as PRP (Platelet RIch Plasma) injections, medical acupuncture, laser treatments or HA (Hyaluronic Acid) viscosupplementation. The sports medicine doctor may also recommend physiotherapy, chiropractic or other treatments, including nutritional counselling and mental performance consultations.
