Promoting Long-Term Healing
Dr. Chantal Ducasse is a general practitioner who graduated from the Canadian Academy of Sports Medicine and Exercise (ACMSE). She also holds a bachelor’s degree in physical education, and has completed a year of training in cell biology at the Université de Sherbrooke.
In Quebec, she is a trailblazer in the field of regenerative medicine and injection treatments. She is also the first female non-radiologist to use ultrasound as a tool to improve the accuracy of injections, thus ensuring their safety.
Dr. Ducasse was the first female medical doctor specializing in sports medicine to voluntarily withdraw from the public service of the Quebec Health Insurance Board in 2002, and build her own private sports medicine clinic.
She regularly attends training sessions and conferences in regenerative medicine in the United States and Europe. She is at the forefront of new techniques for the treatment of pain and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
Dr. Ducasse has a wide range of professional experience that allows her to identify the source of your pain and offer you the appropriate treatment. Having been an athlete herself, she understands the importance of returning to the game, and to normal life as quickly as possible.
Her philosophy is based on improving lifestyle habits, on going back to basics, and on the patient’s responsibility for his or her own health, with the help of an interdisciplinary team.
