Elevate Physiotherapy is a Complete Concussions certified clinic.

As a certified Complete Concussions location we provide a full evidence-based
concussion management program including everything from pre-season baseline
testing to concussion treatment and rehabilitation, helping our patients and athletes
safely return to learn, work and play.

Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, headache, pressure in the head, neck
pain, nausea or vomiting, cognitive problems, dizziness, or balance problems,
among others.

Following a concussion injury, it is recommended that you seek the care of a
healthcare professional with training and experience in concussion as soon as
possible. In fact, recent studies have concluded that one of the best predictors of
concussion recovery was how fast you were assessed at a concussion clinic.

The earlier you seek quality concussion care, the better your recovery will be.

Generally, a period of relative "symptom-limited" physical and cognitive rest is
recommended for the first 24-48 hours after injury. After this rest period, a gradual
increase in mental and physical activity is recommended. For optimal recovery, this
process should be directed and supervised by a licensed healthcare practitioner
trained in concussion management.

If symptoms of a concussion are still present after 7 to 10 days, an individualized
treatment and rehabilitation program should be initiated.

The scientific evidence indicates that concussion is best treated with early
application of specific cardio exercise programs, rehabilitation for the visual and
vestibular systems, treatment aimed at the neck and associated whiplash, dietary
and supplement recommendations, as well as patient education.

Multimodal pre-season testing (AKA Baseline Concussion Testing) is a series of
physical and cognitive tests that provide a pre-injury overview of healthy brain
function. In other words, we test your balance, your reaction time, your memory,
your visual tracking speed, and a whole bunch of other brain functions. This gives us
a map of how your brain functions when you are healthy.

If you sustain a concussion, we can use your pre-injury results to see not only where
the deficits are, but how much deficit exists. This can help us both with our
treatment strategy and with developing a better understanding of when you're brain
has recovered and you are safe to return to your sport.

It’s important to remember that not all baseline testing is created equal. The

Complete Concussions protocol is unique in that it combines the best evidence-
based tools available so that you are getting the most complete brain map available.
