Concussions occur every four minutes in Canada, with approximately 150,000 Canadians suffering a brain injury annually. And the average age for the first concussion is 10-years-old. The two leading causes of concussions and mild traumatic brain injury are falls and car accidents.

Concussion symptoms normally resolve within seven to fourteen days. If they persist, you should seek treatment from a healthcare professional with training in concussion management.

We can help with assessing concussion-related issues and guiding an active recovery program. We are also able to provide comprehensive baseline testing and post injury testing to help guide recovery.

Knowledge is important too, especially when it comes to prevention and recognizing signs of a concussion. That’s why we also offer a comprehensive program of educational services to sports organizations, schools and employers.

When you have a concussion, rest is crucial – but so is taking an active approach to recovery. Our multi-disciplinary approach to assessment and treatment is designed to help you recover as quickly and safely as possible. Every concussion is unique and we tailor our care to meet your needs.
