Learn to Recognize The Signs of Concussion
Whether it’s caused by a sports injury or an accident during another recreational activity, concussion is a serious danger for active players. Learn to recognize the signs of concussion:
Protect Your Athlete From Playing Too Soon With Concussion Testing
Once a player has had a concussion, complete rest is recommended for the first 24 to 48 hours after the injury. Following that, a gradual return to activity is recommended, and OTC medications may be used to treat headache pain.
The best time to start programs for concussion is before your athlete gets one. Our CCMI certified physiotherapists can perform a baseline assessment to determine an athlete’s normal brain functionality. These values can then be used as a benchmark for a return to play should they experience a concussion later. If they do, we then tailor a personalized program based on the most current research to ensure the safest and most successful return to play. You’ll have:
The Relentless Pursuit of a Better You
Unlike other physiotherapy clinics, our foundational concept of RESTORE-MOVE-PERFORM is based on a functional model that corrects and improves basic movement patterns before building strength, power, endurance, speed, and technical skill in order to prevent injuries due to compensation.
A more complete recovery and prevention of future injuries can be achieved by identifying faulty movement patterns.
Correctly retraining movement patterns creates a foundation to effectively build athletic performance on.
Execution of your activities is more efficient and results in better outcomes in the gym and in activity directly.
