Medical Coverage for Pink the Rink

LiveActive will be providing complimentary medical care to all participating athletes. Our Etobicoke team of sport medicine physicians, physiotherapist, chiropractors, and massage therapists will be located in the main lobby of the Ford Performance Centre all three days of the tournament.

Medical Assessments

Should any athlete need to see a sport medicine physician, Dr. E. Laura Cruz will be on site to help these athletes through injury. Dr. Cruz is a Toronto consultant for Hockey Canada and was the league physician for the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL). Canadian athletes will be required to have their health card. Quebec and International athletes will be asked to sign a waiver, but there will be no cost to this assessment.

Access to Imaging

LiveActive has informed local imaging centres of the tournament and have arranged for athletes to have access to X-Ray and Ultrasound if needed. These services are only available on Friday and Saturday. Tournament participants may have to rely on urgent care centres on Sunday should same day imaging be required.

Concussion Assessments

LiveActive Sport Medicine’s team has specialized training in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of concussions. If an athlete is suspected of having sustained an injury, we’re here to help. This includes rink side assessment, education, and a recommendation for follow up care.

Pre-Game Prep. & Post-Game Recovery

If you have an on-going injury but are cleared to play, we’re here to help. Whether its a quick tape of your wrist or some assissted stretching to prep you for your upcoming game, our team is available all weekend long. If you want some post-game therapy, our team can provide massage, acupuncture, and some cool down exercises as needed. We have a Game Ready Cold Compress should we need a little more heavy duty pain relief.
