Comprehensive General Checkup

     At Mediplex we make the distinction between health assessment and screening for disease. Health is an active process of engaging in healthful habits that optimize a person’s life. A health assessment is the process of obtaining multiple measures that can be improved and compared, with the guidance of goal-oriented care.

     Disease is a passive process that develops through interaction of genes, environment, nutrition, habits and other factors.

     A disease generally develops when a set of conditions surpasses our body’s ability to heal itself. The early detection of disease is important in order to prevent further impairment of the body. For optimal health we need to have the balance between control of disease and engaging in healthful habits that help to prevent the onset of disease, and maximizing the performance of our bodies.

     During our comprehensive general checkup we assess multiple contributing factors to both health and disease, we screen for numerous diseases, and obtain a whole set of health data through specialized diagnostic tests. All this information is compiled and interpreted to provide an accurate assessment, upon which personalized recommendations are made.

Specialty pain clinic

     At one point in our lives most of us will experience some form of pain. The pain may be minor and transient for some, or severe and debilitating for others. The important aspects of dealing with pain include identification of the source of the pain, analysis of the contributing and perpetuating factors, appropriate diagnostic tests and their interpretation, and a treatment plan that emphasizes restoration of normal function, and minimization or elimination of pain.

     Back pain, neck pain, and headaches are among the top 5 most common reasons for seeking medical attention. While most painful conditions tend to resolve spontaneously within 2 weeks, a persistent pain beyond this mark increases the likelihood for the pain to become chronic unless it is dealt with on a timely basis.

     At Mediplex we are striving to become one of Quebec’s premiere resource for management of pain, by providing a dedicated team of specialists that work in a multidisciplinary environment.

     We understand that pain is not just a problem because it hurts. It can cause physical damage to your body. Chronic Pain increases levels of stress hormones, adrenaline, and changes brain and spinal cord chemistry and physiology. It is related to Heart Disease, Cancer, Obesity, Diabetes, Accelerated Aging, and Addiction. It damages every aspect of your life and can bankrupt you and you loved ones financially, emotionally, and spiritually.

     Our program includes a detailed assessment of the cause of pain, the associated dysfunction, as well as the contributing and perpetuating factors. This is followed by the most appropriate and personalized therapeutic plan. Our goal is to provide the most appropriate care that offers the best relief of pain, and the fastest restoration of function. 

These consultations are covered by the provincial health care plan (RAMQ).

Cardiovascular assessment and management

Internal medicine consultation

Internal medicine as a specialty is the discipline that evaluates and treats medical conditions in adults. The advantage of the specialty is its diverse focus which spans multiple sub-specialties such as cardiology, endocrinology, rheumatology, nephrology, hematology, rheumatology, and others. Referral to internal medicine is generally made for evaluation of complex medical conditions, evaluation of patients presenting with vague symptoms, evaluation of abnormal test results, and initiation or assistance with treatment of difficult to treat medical conditions. Every patient is assessed across multiple disciplines to try and establish a diagnosis and offer the most appropriate treatment plan.

At Mediplex, our Internal Medicine consultations are performed by our team of several Internal Medicine Specialists.

Pain Management

    1. Trigger point injection

The majority of painful musculoskeletal conditions have a muscular component to the pain. The source of the pain is generally due to a focal dysfunction within the muscle, which is called a trigger point, that elicits pain both locally, and radiates to other sites as well. The assessment of every painful condition needs to include a thorough evaluation of the potential muscle groups that may be contributing to the pain. Accurate identification of those contributing regions, and more specifically the identification of trigger points, could lead to complete eradication of the source of pain. At Mediplex we treat the source of pain by accurate identification of the site, and injection of the site with a neutralizing solution. The procedure leads to resolution of pain, and restoration of normal function of the muscle involved, ultimately reducing or eliminating the need for medications.

2. Articular injections

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint condition that afflicts more than half of the population during their lifetime. The most common joint involvement is the knee, followed by the hip and the hands, as well as the spine. Up to 50% of the population will develop painful knee osteoarthritis by the age of 85. At Mediplex we do a comprehensive assessment to decide and administer the most appropriate therapy which may include injection of the affected joint, injection of adjoining structures (ligaments, tendons, bursa and muscle), medications, and other supportive modalities that are nonsurgical.

3. Synvisc injections

Synvisc is an elastic and viscous substance made from hyaluronan which is found in normal joint fluid. It is injected directly into the knee joint to restore the cushioning and lubricating properties of normal joint fluid.

At Mediplex our trained physicians administer Synvisc to the painful knee joint affected by osteoarthritis. The effect of the therapy may provide relief for up to 6 months on average.

Nursing

Our nurses are highly skilled in various domains and are involved in every aspect of the persons care plan including test administration, teaching, and providing the coaching needed to achieve goal-directed care.
