Southern Alberta 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. This is followed by a Sport 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:

A Doctor's referral may be necessary if the concussion is related to a motor vehicle accident claim, Worker's Compensation Board claim, or if the concussion is older than 3 months. No referral is necessary otherwise!

First-time appointments are covered by Alberta Health Services (AHS), if provided with a provincial health care number.

To book for concussion, call Rebound at 403-329-2114

Southern Alberta Acute Knee Injury Clinic (SAAKIC)

The Southern Alberta Acute Knee Injury Clinic (SAAKIC) is a multidisciplinary clinic that aims to triage patients who have had a recent knee injury happen in the last 6 weeks. SAAKIC appointments are covered by Alberta Health Services (AHS), if a provincial health care number is provided. Your Doctor's referral can be sent to our office, with no prior imaging required.

Upon assessment by our Athletic Therapist and Sports Medicine Physician, we can determine the necessary route of care for you (bracing, rehabilitation, surgery, imaging). Not only will this save you time, money, and unnecessary procedures, but it will also help minimize deterioration of the knee structures due to waiting for care.

Referrals can be completed by having your Family Physician fax to the Sport Medicine Physicians office 403-388-4324.

More information can be found at ‚ÄčSAAKIC's Website or by calling 403-329-2777.
