Concussion Care Community Clinic specializes in management of post concussion symptoms that have not resolved within the typical 7-10 day recovery period. The majority of clients do recover fully in this time period, however, a small percentage continue to have symptoms that resolve at a slower pace. Our programs are aimed at providing education, reassurance, and training on how to live with symptoms after injury.
If your patient or client is still having symptoms after 4 – 6 weeks such as difficulties with emotional control, attention/concentration, memory, fatigue, sleep/movements, vertigo/dizziness or headaches, it may be appropriate to refer them to our concussion program. The program focuses on educating clients about their symptoms and how to better manage them during their recovery. This may include providing education on sleep hygiene, cognitive or physical exertion, modifications at school/work or managing social situations. A full report is completed and sent to the client and physician with recommendations to promote a speedy recovery.
If you are meeting with a client who has long term persistent symptoms after a mild brain injury or concussion, a referral to our reactivation program may be beneficial. The goal of this program is to empower clients with the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage and live with their long term symptoms. Our clinic focuses on increasing functions at home, work or school despite having symptoms that have been present for 6 months, 1 year or even 2 years post injury. Our professional staff focus on assisting the clients to cognitively reframe challenging tasks or overcome anxieties of symptom return or exacerbation. Ultimately, we provide clinical services that allow clients to school, work and life roles.
