  • Print

Manitobans suffering from an injury or chronic pain now have access to a state-of-the-art treatment centre in the Exchange District.

The new 5,200-square-foot Sport Medicine Centre celebrates its grand opening today. The facility is a multidisciplinary clinic offering advanced rehabilitative techniques under one roof.

"We are here to provide athlete-level care for everyone who needs treatment," said Rickie Walkden, the clinic’s director and senior therapist. "If you’ve got an injury or chronic pain, you’ll get quick access to one-on-one care and we’ll work with you to help speed recovery."

Manitobans will have access to a sport medicine physician, physical therapy, massage therapy, nutritional counselling and sport psychology. Chiropractic services will also begin on Thursday.

The Sport Medicine Centre, located in the Sport for Life Centre at 145 Pacific Ave., is open to the public. Appointments can be made by calling 925-5944.

The Sport for Life Centre also houses Sport Manitoba’s headquarters, including the agency’s 50 employees and 75 provincial sport organizations. The facility also includes meeting rooms, a multi-purpose theatre, and the new Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame.

The opening of the Sport Medicine Centre completes Phase 1 of the development. The next phase will feature a training field house and new community programming. Fundraising for this phase is now underway.
