FOUR COUNTIES HEALTH SERVICES WELCOMES PAIN AND WELLNESS CENTRE TO ITS HEALTH VILLAGE
11/5/2018 10:48:56 AM
The Middlesex Hospital Alliance (MHA) announced today that Four Counties Health Services (FCHS) is welcoming the Southwest Pain Relief and Wellness Centre as its newest partner, with services to be developed and led by local resident, Dr. Jody Anderson and his wife, Colleen Anderson.
Dr. Anderson opened one of the first traditional physician/alternative non-physician wellness clinics in Ontario in 2002, where he employed several traditional and alternative health practitioners based on a Harvard Medical Evidence-Based CAM model. Early training included 3-years under Fred Kahn, MD FRCS(C), a pioneer in the field of alternative pain management and developer of Bioflex, a low intensity laser therapy system. The Toronto based clinic and research facility focused primarily on complementary and non-drug management of pain, related to arthritis disorders, work, sport, and motor vehicle accident injuries, and provided ancillary wound care via application of programmed laser therapy, called photobiomodulation (PBM).
The Southwest Pain Relief and Wellness Centre will deliver services that are complementary to family doctors' treatment plans, and include non-drug and non-surgical modalities such as laser therapy, massage therapy, exercise, medical acupuncture, mindfulness, and light exercise including Yoga and Tai Chi. Additional services may be added in the future.
The Southwest Pain Relief and Wellness Centre is the latest in a series of new tenants joining FCHS, following the recent introduction of a Flex Clinic for wound/ostomy/infusion care and Dynacare community lab services.
