COLLABORATIVE EVIDENCE BASED TREATMENT

Concussion1

The most recent evidence is showing us that absolute rest beyond the first 24 – 48 hours (in most cases) is no longer considered the best approach to concussion care. The current research is showing us that early intervention of various therapies can significantly improve recovery, and this has led to a more active approach to concussion treatment.

As a Complete Concussion Management™ clinic, our certified team of practitioners provides the most comprehensive and best in research-proven concussion care.

CERTIFIED CLINICIANS TRAINED IN CONCUSSION CARE

Our certified clinicians have specialized training in the treatment and rehabilitation of acute concussions as well as ongoing concussion-related symptoms such as headaches, balance/dizziness issues, visual disturbances, reading difficulties, trouble concentrating, etc.

Your practitioner will perform a thorough medical history and physical examination, and will recommend the most effective treatment approach to meet your needs. Your treatment plan may include hands-on treatment and whiplash treatment, vestibular rehabilitation, visual rehabilitation, diet and nutrition, exercise therapy, or education and reassurance. For very complex cases we also have a referral network of specialists that can be accessed should your case require additional care.

We provide modifications and communicate with teachers/school administration, family physicians, and coaches to facilitate a safe return to the activities our patients need, want and love to do.

We offer a step-wise reintegration into school, work and sports through a process involving a graduated reintroduction of mental, physical and sport specific activities while assessing symptoms and recovery.

Return To Learn and Work

We provide rehabilitation programs for individuals experiencing symptoms that affect their ability to perform at school or work.

Return To Play

Our step-wise process gradually introduces the athlete back into their specific sporting environment. We reintroduce varying degrees of physical and sport specific activity, while carefully assessing symptoms, performance and recovery. Physical and cognitive tests are used (including re-testing of pre-injury baseline measures, if available) to confirm their level of recovery and ability to safely return to full play.

WHAT IS BASELINE TESTING AND WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?

Baseline testing is a series of physical and cognitive tests designed to provide a pre-injury overview of an individual’s healthy brain function. These tests can provide clinicians with an objective benchmark on which to compare should an athlete sustain a concussion. As the symptoms of concussion will often dissipate days to weeks before the brain has recovered, having objective baseline information provides clinicians with valuable information that may help to make safer return to play decisions.

As a Complete Concussion Management clinic, our network allows you access to these baseline results and proper follow-up care in almost every city in Canada. Download the Concussion Tracker App to view your results, find other Complete Concussion Management clinics, and learn recovery tips. If a concussion occurs, your app will convert into a rehab tool where you can view prescribed rehab exercises and report your daily symptoms to your clinic and medical practitioner.

Our baseline concussion test is covered by insurance benefits plan, which means you may be eligible to receive full or partial reimbursement.

Individual and team rates are available.
