Concussion Clinic

The Southern Alberta Concussion Clinic consists of a multidisciplinary team dedicated to assessing and treating patients who are recovering from an acute concussion, or have ongoing post-concussion syndrome.

The Assessment is an hour long and is performed by an Athletic Therapist during the first 45 minutes, and followed by a Sports Medicine Physician for the remaining 15 minutes. The ‚Äčinitial assessment is aimed at determining if a concussion is present and developing a treatment plan.

To best treat and manage the concussion, if present, the following will be reviewed:

Based on the results of the assessment and input from the affected individual, a treatment plan will be developed to ensure that the plan is feasible, accessible, and realistic for the injury and life circumstances.

The clinic will also help coordinate academic and work accommodations, monitor the recovery process to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment plan, and will provide clearance for sports, physical activities, and certain workplace tasks.

Treatments that may be offered through the Concussion Clinic include:

There is NO referral needed to be seen by the Concussion Clinic. First-time appointments are covered by Alberta Health Services (AHS).
