Dr. Victor Chan is Keynote Speaker at the annual conference for the Canadian Sports Massage Therapists Association

April, 7th

On Saturday March 23, 2013 Dr. Victor Chan was invited to be a keynote speaker at the annual conference for the Canadian Sports Massage Therapists Association – BC Chapter conference held at the Utopia Academy in Vancouver, BC. Most of those who were in attendance were registered massage therapists, but other health professionals including chiropractors, kinesiologists, and physiotherapists were also on hand. Although very skilled within their own scopes of practice, serious injuries involving connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments can often benefit from the kind of tissue regeneration that prolotherapy can initiate. During his presentation, Dr. Chan shared his knowledge and experience about the practice of prolotherapy for the treatment of sports injuries and the unique demands faced when treating high-performance athletes. Most importantly, the criteria for identifying what types of injuries prolotherapy is indicated for was presented. Included in the talk was also a discussion of advanced treatment techniques such as the use of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to address the core problem of connective tissue injury and avoid the need for significant downtime or surgery. Dr. Chan’s presentation was well received and stimulated a lot of great questions and ideas about multi-disciplinary treatment strategies for common sports injuries. Video coming soon.
