June 22, 2011 (Winnipeg, MB) – The Sport for Life Centre (located at 145 Pacific Avenue) has been busy with excitement and activity and its brand new Sport Medicine Centre is now open to the public. This 5,226 square foot Centre is fully outfitted with state of the art equipment and will support a wide spectrum of patients. Treatment is available for all ages, all walks of life, and any injury.
The Sport Medicine Centre is a multidisciplinary clinic that offers an exceptional level of quality patient care for sport medicine and orthopedic injuries. Services offered at the Centre will be physical therapy, massage therapy, nutritional counselling, and sport psychology. The intent of the centre is to provide a full range of health services, which will also include chiropractic and athletic therapy in the near future. Patient care is always one-on-one and the clinicians will work directly with coaches, parents, doctors/surgeons, and other team members to ensure the best rehabilitation outcomes.
The completion of the Sport Medicine Centre is part of the full vision of the Sport for Life Centre being a first of its kind nationally. “The Centre is an important and unique part of completing the final phases of the Sport for Life Centre,” said Jeff Hnatiuk President and CEO for Sport Manitoba. “The Centre will enhance sport development and resources at the community and provincial level.”
