If you think you or someone you know may have a concussion and you have questions please call our 24 hour CONCUSSION HOTLINE to speak with one of our concussion management professionals. They can walk you through what to do following a concussion and advise you on any medical assessments you may need. They will also advise you on things you should avoid following a concussion.
What is a concussion?
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury and it's critical to recognize the signs and symptoms and seek treatment when needed. A concussion can occur as a result of a car accident, slip & fall, sport, physical altercation and work place injury to name a few.

At Accelerated Health & Wellness Centre our practitioners have been trained through Shift Concussion Management in Guelph, Ontario.
What Treatment is Available for Post Concussion Syndrome?
Our practitioners are trained to assess patients suffering from concussion symptoms and determine what specific treatment and exercises they require. Patients suffering from post concussion syndrome may require a combination of the following:
Physical Hands-on Treatment for their neck pain, whiplash and/or headaches
Vestibular Rehabilitation to improve/resolve dizziness, vertigo and balance concerns
Visual Therapy to help re-train their visual system to function optimally
We also provide patients with a home exercise program and recommendations based on our clinical findings. In cases where more significant visual dysfunction is found we collaborate with IRIS in Welland, where we can refer patients to a trained optometrist for a more in depth vision assessment and possible vision therapy or prescription glasses if needed.
