Sport and Exercise Medicine Consultation
Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) consultations are provided by Family Physicians who have taken specialist training in the field of Sports Medicine.
The role of the SEM consultation in the rehabilitation continuum is that the consultant, Drs. Trenholm and Mikhail, take a very detailed history of a clients injury, illness, or disability which is then complimented by an advanced physical examination.
Putting It All Together
The results of the history and physical are then put together to determine what the possible diagnoses are. If it is thought to be required to further delineate the diagnosis, the Sport and Exercise Medicine consultant will then order tests which may include imaging (MRI, CT, X-Rays, Bone Scans, Ultrasounds) and/or blood work.
With all of this information, the SEM Physician will then act as a quarterback and put together a detailed treatment and rehabilitative plan for our clients at Reactivate. This could include any of the modalities that our other therapists provide here in the clinic. With your written consent, your SEM consultation letter which outlines the diagnosis and treatment plan will be shared with the other therapists at Reactivate so that the plan can be put into motion.
