Medysis Calgary Executive Health Assessment

Posted on: November 7th, 2016 by Movement Sports Clinic No Comments

Movement Sports Clinic is partnering with Medysis Calgary, a comprehensive medical health assessment company. Both companies have a common vision to provide technologies, approaches, and services to help you improve your health and prevent medical issues before they become real problems. Where Movement Sports Clinic focuses more on musculoskeletal function and performance, Medysis can provide medical evaluation for health components like cardiovascular, genitourinary and gastrointestinal systems. With cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke being top health issues in our society, early detection of both disease and risk is the best defense.

medisys Louise Taylor and Tyson Plesuk, physiotherapists and co-owners of Movement Sports Clinic went for the Executive Preventative Health Assessments in September 2016. In two and half hours all aspect of their health and lifestyle were explored and measured. The following are the services they experienced:

  • Blood work and urinalysis
  • Meeting with a physician to examine     family history and health risk
  • Physician assessment of cardiovascular health and skin check
  • Kinesiologist administered Treadmill Stress test and evaluation of current fitness programs and goals
  • Kinesiologist administered Pulmonary Lung Function test
  • Kinesiologist administered hearing and sight tests
  • Consultation with a dietician for nutritional assessment

Referrals for screening tests are made based on need. Examples of screening tests are bone density evaluation, colon cancer screen or mammogram (assessment for breast cancer).

Blood sugar and cholesterol blood tests do require fasting for 6 hours before the appointment, but after the blood test there is a lounge where toast, cereals, fruit and protein drinks and bars were available for consumption. It is a great opportunity to fuel up before the treadmill test, so you can give your best effort!

medisys This comprehensive evaluation is meant to be completed annually in order to screen for any abnormalities or increased risk of disease or dysfunction.  Tyson and Louise both have great family physicians, but this program was definitely more complete than meeting with a general practitioner for an annual physical assessment.

Louise was impressed with both the facility and team. The kinesiologists were very capable of administering the various test protocols and the physician was extremely knowledgeable about maintaining optimal health. 

Tyson appreciated the thoroughness of the comprehensive assessment and understands the importance to be properly assessed to make accurate diagnosis and management plans and strategies.  This proactive approach to healthcare is a shared ideology of Movement Sports Clinic and Medysis.
