Good News is All Around
The Healthy View
It can sometimes feel like positive news is hard to find, but right now, we’re finding ourselves flooded with incredible news to share! From new team members to career milestones, come and help us celebrate our teams and their successes!
We are very excited to announce that in addition to managing the Sport Medicine Clinic at the Toronto Athletic Club, Chris Broadhurst and Dr. Lawrence Micheli will now be leading the Adelaide Health Clinic.
Chris and Lawrence have successfully led SMC for the last 18 years and bring a tremendous amount of experience, an excellent track record of business growth, and a dedicated focus on patient care to the Adelaide Health Clinic. They are looking forward to overseeing both Clinics moving forward.
They’ll be continuing to build the excellent foundation of practitioners at the Adelaide Clinic, while expanding on our treatment offering to include key modalities for growth and an expanded patient base.
Celebrating a Milestone for Bob
On May 15, 1991, Bob started working at the Sport Medicine Clinic, which means that this Saturday marks his 30th anniversary of being a member of our family. What a milestone! Bob brings so much joy and knowledge to our team, and always brings a smile to all of our faces. Many of our patients absolutely adore Bob and will only visit the Clinic when he’s available to see them.
For those who don’t know Bob, he has been a massage therapist for almost 40 years, specializing in sport and deep tissue massage. He provides therapies for amateur and professional athletes around the world and has become very familiar with a wide range of work related injuries.
Interested in getting to know Bob more? He currently works at our Clinic on Mondays and Thursdays between 11:00am – 6:00pm, so feel free to contact our reception to book an appointment.
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture
What is acupuncture?
It is a treatment technique used by health professionals whereby fine solid needles are inserted into specific points on the body (with or without the use of electricity).
Acupuncture is used for therapeutic purposes to:
- Treat local tissue changes (e.g., tight bands in a muscle i.e., “trigger points”, muscle-tendon junction injury, tendinopathy)
- Stimulate peripheral nerves
- Stimulate the central nervous system
- Influence systemic regulation (e.g., autonomic nervous system, endocrine system, organ systems)
Acupuncture may be used for rehabilitation of injuries that range from acute to chronic conditions, such as:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Carpal tunnel
- Tennis elbow
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Chronic pain syndromes
- Fatigue and poor energy
- Modulation of mood
- Smoking cessation
- Digestive issues
- Pelvic pain
Acupuncture is not recommended for patients that:
- Are pregnant
- Are immune system compromised (e.g., lupus, cancer patients post chemotherapy)
