Mosman businessman Peter Carre developed a passion for medical technology when his daughter Jamie was badly injured playing representative basketball in 2011.
The teenager fell during a Championship game for Norths, rupturing a ligament in her right hand that forced the power forward out of the Sydney competition.
“It was a terrible injury for a young girl showing great promise in the world of Basketball,” Peter says, “I was heartbroken for my daughter and wanted to do whatever I could to help get Jamie back on the court.”
Sidelined for the rest of the season and frustrated by long bouts of rehabilitation, the young athlete asked her American father to investigate alternative treatments.
“So, I called an old friend who just happened to be Team Doctor for the Orlando Magic,” Peter laughs, “and the rest is history.”
Peter learned of a little-known treatment, known as Photobiomodulation (PBMt), that was being used to treat the Orlando team’s injuries, with impressive results.
