Our concussion recovery program emphasizes a continuum of care from education and baseline testing to injury management and return-to-play. We take a holistic approach to concussion treatment at our clinic, emphasizing full-body and mind wellness in the way we go about helping Ottawa concussion patients achieve a return to full function and normal life.
Emergency evaluation is warranted in situations of deteriorating mental status such as increasing confusion and difficulty recognizing people or places. Other symptoms requiring immediate medical attention include worsening headache; worsening nausea or vomiting, and excessive drowsiness or lethargy. When a concussion is suspected, we also recommend booking an initial assessment with us as early as possible. Even if you have not had a baseline assessment with us, we will assess your injury and provide you with a management strategy to aid in your recovery. Assessments and subsequent visits/therapy are covered under most extended healthcare benefit packages (e.g. Chiropractic). For inquiries about appointments, please contact us.

It’s hard to say how long it will take for one to recover fully from a concussion. Depending on the severity of the injury, some systems are resolved in a short timeframe. However, it can be months or years before all symptoms subside. Several factors contribute to the length of recovery including age, the number of concussions suffered health history and more.
