Sport is not just about physical exercise.
It incorporates physical and mental wellbeing - Nutrition, Fitness, Psychology, Rapid Injury Recovery and Health Promotion.
To assist in this, Karori Medical Centre offers a Sports Medicine Service:
Dr Chan Dassanayake (Dip Sports Medicine, Auckland) offers diagnosis, investigation and treatment of acute and chronic sports injuries. In addition he can provide advice on sports nutrition and the psychology of sport.
Chan has looked after both local and national sports teams and is a sports doctor for the NZ Academy of Sport in Wellington.
Both Chan and John Sloane (see Podiatry) work in conjunction with local physiotherapists and are ACC Registered.
Chan also practices Acupuncture (see Acupuncture) for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
