There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about concussion assessment and how we are advancing your recovery.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. Or a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.
Anyone can be injured; during a fall, car accident, rollercoaster or any other activity where your head and brain are jarred. Sports such as; football, lacrosse, soccer, hockey or any sport that may involve contact with your head can result in a concussive event. Concussions do not necessarily involve a loss of consciousness and they are usually not life-threatening, but they can cause serious symptoms that may require medical treatment and can have long lasting implications. That is why they are such a silent, overlooked and underestimated problem in our society.
Post - Concussion Syndrome refers to the set of symptoms that may accompany a concussion. These symptoms may linger for weeks, months or even years after the initial injury.The brain is cushioned inside the skull by the surrounding cerebrospinal fluid, but despite this, in the event of a blow to the head or rapid deceleration, it can cause the brain to contact the inside of the skull and then "bounce back" striking the other side of the skull as well, This type of injury is often referred to as a Coup and Contra Coup. There is potential for tearing of blood vessels, pulling of nerve fibers and even bruising of the brain tissue.
Sometimes this damage is microscopic and not even visible by CT scan. In severe cases, brain tissue can swell within the rigid confines of the skull resulting in compression of the brain and its blood vessels. Brain swelling after a concussion has the potential to increase the severity of the injury.

We offer a comprehensive approach to rehabilitation after concussion. There are multiple aspects to our treatment protocol to facilitate recovery. Manual Therapeutic interventions are extremely helpful in facilitating the recovery of musculosketal injuries that may accompany the concussion. As well as facilitating neuro-plasticity and thus neuro-cognitive recovery.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases oxygen perfusion intra-cellularly. Accelerating the healing and detoxification processes.
Decreasing Inflammation and creating the relaxation and healing brain wave patterns.
