Sports Medicine Clinic

The Carleton Sports Medicine Center is located in the Ice House just off University Drive of Carleton University. Established in 1972 it was one of the first clinics of this kind in Canada and now after more than 30 years we continue to provide care for not just the competitive athlete but the general public with musculoskeletal injury or pain who are seeking to be more active than their medical condition allows.

What We Do

The main function and mission of the clinic is to provide sports medicine care for all levels of athletes in the National Capital Region.

Our Specialty

We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of athletic injuries with emphasis on patient care, education and research. Physicians who have training in the management of sports injuries are available for consultation on the same day. Consultations by orthopaedic surgeons are available when necessary with a doctor referral.

Inside The Clinic

The clinic is equipped with a full range of orthopedic appliances and soft goods available to treat athletic injuries. Some products, such as orthotics and knee braces are measured and fitted by an orthopedic technician. Specialized procedures can also be done at the clinic itself, such as viscosupplementation joint injection for osteoarthritis.

Phone (613) 520-3510 or fax (613) 520-3974 for an appointment.

Medical Education

We have a commitment to undergraduate medical education. We are associated with the University of Ottawa and take medical students on elective assignments. The Family Practice program also assigns residents on electives to the clinic. During these electives the student is exposed to the diagnosis and treatment of common athletic injuries.

We also provide an Orthopedic surgery fellowship in sports medicine and arthroscopy for 3 fellows a year. The objective of the fellowship is to become proficient in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of common sports injuries. For further information contact the preceptor, Dr. Don Johnson.

Sport medicine rounds are held on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00 PM at the board room of the athletic complex. Contact the clinic for the monthly topics. The rounds are open to all medical and paramedical sport medicine staff in the city.
