Innovative Sport Medicine offers six key programs to meet the needs of our patients. If you've gotten injured playing sports, working out, or otherwise being active, we want to help diagnose and treat whatever issues have come up. Our goal is to see you quickly, treat you holistically, and keep you out of the emergency room with long term solutions to any sports related injury you have.
rapid access sport injury clinic
The Rapid Access Sport Injury Clinic (RASIC) is structured to assess patients with acute (new) injuries. Patients do not need a referral and have early access (typically within 72 business hours) to experienced Sport Medicine Physicians.
The RASIC is ideal for those who have a sport-related injury sustained within the past 6 weeks. Timely access to a Sport Medicine team means accurate diagnosis and an immediate start to treatment.
acute sport concussion clinic
Our Acute Sport Concussion Clinic is an evidence-based program that is multi-disciplinary in nature. It was designed to appropriately assess and manage individuals who may have suffered a Sport or Recreational related concussion and provide them with a progressive return to both mental and physical activity. This team based approach includes seeing an Athletic Therapist and Sport Medicine Physician. Depending on your assessment, the team may refer you to other specialists to help aid in your recovery.
To be treated for a concussion at our clinic, you will need to have a suspected or diagnosed concussion; be within six weeks of the concussion; be over the age of 13. The concussion cannot be related to a motor vehicle accident or being treated as a workplace compensation board injury.
RunIQ is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to the prevention and treatment of running injuries while improving running efficiency and performance. The program provides evaluation and recommendations from specialist clinicians including a Sport Medicine Physician, Physiotherapist, Biomechanist, Orthotist, and Training Advisor.
Before entering into the RunIQ program, prospective clients will be evaluated by a Sport Medicine Physician to determine their suitability for the program. The purpose of this medical consultation is to provide precise diagnosis of the injury and may include diagnostic imaging and/or other laboratory testing.
gla:D ARTHRITIS PROGRAM
GLA:D is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and evidence-based approach to the management of knee osteoarthritis (OA). The program provides evaluation and treatment options from specialist clinicians including a Sport Medicine Physician, Dietician, Physiotherapist, and Athletic Therapist.
Before entering into the GLA:D program, prospective clients will be evaluated by a Sport Medicine Physician to confirm an arthritis diagnosis and determine suitability for the program. The purpose of this medical consultation is to provide precise diagnosis of the injury and may include diagnostic imaging and/or other laboratory testing.
The Clinical Collaboration Team (CCT) model is a paradigm shift in the traditional Sport Medicine treatment model. With the CCT model, collaboration between the Sport Medicine Physician and the Athletic Therapist is emphasized. Clients are first evaluated by the Sport Medicine Physician to confirm the diagnosis. The Athletic Therapist will then provide a dedicated home-based rehab program.
Precision Regenerative (Injection) Therapy
Precision Regenerative Therapy takes a targeted approach to tissue healing by injecting biologic material
to the affected area. Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), prolotherapy injections, and the tenotomy procedure are common techniques to enhance tissue regeneration by stimulating a healing response in regions of poor blood supply. Viscosupplementation is a preventative measure to slow the degeneration of cartilage within a joint (i.e. osteoarthritis). All of these therapeutic techniques work in conjunction with a dedicated rehab program to optimize tissue repair and remodelling.
