What We Do

The University of Calgary Sport Medicine Centre also sees over 700 patients per year who have suffered from Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries. This type of injury is especially common in those who play sports that involve a lot of twisting and quick changes in direction, such as soccer, skiing and basketball. Just because you have suffered from an ACL injury doesn't mean that you have to give up your participation in sport. There have been many athletes who have successfully returned to sport after reconstructive surgery.  We also treat patients for knees, shoulders, concussion rehabilitation, Real Time Ultrasound of core muscle activation and cross section evaluation for Lumbar spine.
