Brain Care Centre aims to maximize individual potential through compassionate, evidence-based and innovative programs and services. Continuing care after experiencing a concussion can have a large positive impact on clients, which is why we developed the Concussion Services Program.
Many individuals who acquire a concussion continue to experience symptoms even after they have passed the typical 3-month recovery period. These symptoms can range from chronic fatigue to mood disorders and cognitive impairments. The commonness of concussions means that there are potentially a large number of individuals experiencing these extended symptoms.
The Concussion Services Program was created with evidence-based best practices for the mild traumatic brain injury population. Concussion services include one-on-one counselling to help develop coping strategies, address any additional disorders, and improve quality of life, and occupational therapy to develop strategies to achieve rehabilitation goals and increase independence.
