The mandate of Concussion Care Community Clinic is to assist adults and children recover positively from a concussion or mild traumatic injury. The majority of individuals suffering from symptoms of concussion recover fully. The key to a full recovery in the early stages is education and reassurance that all symptoms will resolve within weeks or months of the injury. Our assessments and programs empower individuals to resume "living" not just "coping" with post concussive symptoms. The Concussion Care Community Clinic team teaches clients how to become more independent in resuming home, social and work related activities.
At Concussion Care Community Clinic, we want to assist individuals by properly managing and rehabilitating symptoms of concussion. Our professional team will guide you through a step by step recovery protocol including education on sleep, fatigue, thinking, emotions, headaches, sensitivities and physical difficulties. We provide individualized care and understand that recovery from a concussion is a challenging and difficult time.
Finally, our goal at Concussion Care Community Clinic is to implement programming and resources based on the most recent concussion research and management protocol. We deliver a high standard of care to children and adults who have sustained a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury. We hope to educate clients and the community further on concussion care and ensure clients are resuming a full, happy and productive life after injury.
