What Is a Concussion?

A concussion is a type of brain injury that occurs when the brain undergoes acceleration or deceleration due to a significant impact either to the head or body. This impact can cause a temporary disruption in the function of brain cells and a reduction in blood flow, leading to cognitive, physical, and emotional deficits.

Symptoms can range from loss of consciousness and headaches to dizziness, balance issues, and more.

Concussion Treatment

It is crucial to consult a healthcare professional trained in concussion management immediately after experiencing a concussion. Studies show that early assessment at a concussion clinic significantly influences recovery outcomes.

Pre-season Testing

Our multimodal pre-season (Baseline Concussion Testing) involves a series of physical and cognitive assessments that establish a profile of your brain’s health before any injury. This includes testing balance, reaction time, memory, and visual tracking speed, which helps us create a comprehensive map of your brain’s normal functioning.

Following a concussion, we use these baseline results to identify deficits and to gauge your recovery, aiding in the management and safe return to sport.

The Complete Concussions protocol uses top evidence-based tools to ensure you receive the most detailed and effective baseline testing available.
