Concussion Testing Is Available At Our Red Deer Main, Red Deer Campus, and Olds clinics

Concussion Management

Assessment

All of our concussion clients receive an extensive cognitive and physical assessment during their first appointment, lasting 90 minutes to 2 hours. Screen appointments include an overview of current symptoms, medical history, and basic cognitive exertion in memory, concentration, coordination, verbal recall and visual tracking. From there we pair you with one of our expert therapist based on their treatment style.

Treatment

Treatment includes manual work on the head, neck & spine, myofascial release techniques, vestibular treatment, proprioception & balance, visual re-training and sport specific movements/ readiness. Treatment is completely individualized based on client needs.

Recovery

There is no specific length of recovery time as it is different for each person and each concussion. In the final stages of recovery we can also guide you through a progressive return to sport or activity; this includes a maximal exertion test both physically and cognitively.
