I love abbreviations. They make our lives easier and if used frequently it becomes a part of daily rituals. There was once a well-known abbreviation known to everyone who had a cellular phone. S.M.S. stands for short message service. The Whatsapp messaging app has taken it over in popularity.
From January 1 2017, I would like to introduce a new abbreviation; one that I may someday hope will become as well known as the S.M.S here in Mallorca. S.M.C. is an abbreviation that will be known to the Non Spanish speaking residents/visitors either living and or working on Mallorca.
S.M.C. stands for Skeleton & Muscle Consultant. The idea for this abbreviation came about while working on Mallorca as an osteopath and rehabilitation specialist. Mallorca is a Spanish island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is a popular vacation island. Beautiful nature, a well-connected airport, fully equipped marinas and sportive activities all year round make the island a well-visited hub for many tourists and workers.
Unfortunately accidents do happen and when they do, you would like to get the best available care to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. This where the SMC comes in handy! If you have an issue with understanding the Spanish language, the SMC can assist you. If you need to know where you can get a MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) as soon as possible, the SMC can assist you. If you need to see a specialist dealing with any part of the skeletal body, the SMC can assist you to help you the best choice available to you. Also if you had any musculoskeletal treatments and you would like to have more information regarding your injury, rehabilitation and or follow up care in your country of residence, the SMC can also give assistance.
For instance, a temporary worker twisted her ankle during work and was rushed to the hospital for treatment. Here it was unclear if the ankle was broken or not but they put a cast around the ankle until the knee. She was told to buy crutches and she would not be able to walk on the ankle for 3 weeks. She decided to consult a SMC and found out that the ankle needed to be repositioned and a cast was not necessary. Three osteopathic treatments in a one week and homework exercises during the week got her back walking on her feet after one week! This is just one of the many examples where a SMC can play a crucial role in your health!

After 20 years of learning from and working with the best people in the business, Dr. Joe Arrindell Jr decided to move to Mallorca to use the years of experience to grow and develop a sports therapy & osteopathic
clinic. The 2016 season when he was not in the clinic working, he was then traveling with the IAM Swiss Pro Cycle team. Besides being one of the osteopaths for the team, he was also in charge of the strength and conditioning aspect for the complete team before and during the pro cycle season.
