Vancouver Sun: There's a sports doctor for every ailment


The right treatment by the right professionals will take care of your exercise-related injuries fast… But what do you do when the pain doesn't go away? And whom do you trust to provide not only the best treatment, but the kind of advice that doesn't send you back to the couch? According to Fany Fallenbaum, a sports medicine physician at Montreal's McGill Sport Medicine Clinic, injuries that occurred during sports or prevent the return to sport are best evaluated by someone with specialized training in sports injuries. "It used to be that only professional athletes used sports medicine doctors," Fallenbaum said. "Now it's the average exerciser who uses our services."
