It is crucial for athletes to prioritize Concussion Assessment and Testing to ensure their health and safety. Parents of child athletes should also consider it an essential part of responsible sports participation.
At Optimize, we have a team of three physiotherapists who are licensed in Complete Concussion Training. This training is comprehensive and ongoing, allowing our practitioners to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in all aspects of concussions.
As part of their training, they have learned Complete Concussion’s assessment, treatment, and return-to-sport protocols, which are among the most widely used and researched tests and treatments for concussion management. With an evidence-based approach, our team is dedicated to managing concussions and helping individuals return to work, play, or learning after a concussion.
Concussion symptoms vary from person to person, but some of the most common are:
- dizziness, nausea, or headache
- neck pain
- balance problems
- amnesia, forgetfulness, or difficulties paying attention
- loss of consciousnesses
- sleep troubles, sleeping too much, or not able to sleep
- anxiety and panic attacks
Early detection of a Concussion, along with prompt medical attention, reduces the risk of long-term consequences and gets athletes returning to sport sooner.
