From intravenous treatments, to neuro-physiotherapy and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, our breadth of services allows us to not only provide better tailored solutions, but also to buttress our various expertise with clinical trials and unique research studies.
Research is at the Core of Our Practice
We participate in a number of clinical trials aiming to create advancements for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). Our participation allows us to offer many treatments long before they become available to a majority of specialists, giving patients an opportunity to choose from a wide range of care that, while experimental in nature, may possibly be more effective.
Cutting edge treatments aren’t the only reason we conduct clinical trials, nor are they the only reason patients decide to participate. Our involvement gives us the opportunity to develop better protocols and, most importantly, to help advance the treatments themselves.
When it comes to Neurological diseases, large strides have been made in recent years; results that would have been impossible without the participation of Doctors, Nurses and, most of all, patients.
Neurogym and Clinical Research
Until recently, there were few, if any, evidence based neurological treatments beyond that of the pharmacological variety. This is changing. Thanks to our NeuroGym, we now offer neuro-physiotherapy and custom designed training equipment to complement pharmacological approaches.
The notion that specific physical exercises can help slow disease progression and speed up recovery, though often intuitively applied in other fields, is nonetheless novel to neurology. This gives us the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge evidence based research concerning the efficacy of combined treatment options. Best of all, it also gives patients the opportunity to take charge of their recovery. Click here to find out more about NeuroGym.
In accordance with our mandate to provide the most comprehensive neurological care possible, we were the first to introduce Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (“Mag-Stim“) to the Gatineau region. Mag-Stim’s efficacy in treating neurological issues is now well documented, and its use is no longer uncommon in the Ottawa-Gatineau region’s psychiatric centers.

That being said, we continue to be at the forefront of this treatment’s evolution; consistently developing new and better protocols thanks to our Neuro-Navigation, which allows us to actively and accurately plot the areas of the brain we stimulate with greater precision. Like every other neurological tool at Clinique Neuro-Outaouais, this allows us to not only research better treatments but also to provide a new level of customized care.
In the short term, it is our ability to combine treatments that provides the most avenue for increased efficacy; a complement to ongoing clinical research which promises gradual long term improvement.
At Clinique Neuro-Outaouais, we’re excited to have had evidence based success in improving patient care. We invite you to read our blog, and to contact us in order to learn more about our ongoing research trials and the range of our services.
