At Physionorth Sports & Wellness Centre, we employ the Complete Concussion Management™ system, a full-service program that utilizes evidence-based testing, rehabilitation and treatments. To track progress, all CCMI clinics (including Physionorth Sports & Wellness Centre) maintain all baseline and post-injury files relating to the concussion. Your patient file can be accessed at any CCMI-affiliated clinic in Canada.

What is a concussion? A concussion is caused by rapid acceleration or deceleration of the brain within the skull. It is a common misconception that to sustain a concussion there must be a direct blow to the head; this is absolutely false.

What are the symptoms of a concussion? You may be surprised to learn that only 10% of concussions result in loss of consciousness. Therefore, loss of consciousness is NOT a method of identifying a concussion. Some common concussion symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Head Pressure
  • Neck Pain
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry Vision
  • Balance Issues
  • Light Sensitivity
  • Noise Sensitivity
  • Feeling “Slowed Down”
  • “Foggy” Feeling
  • Feeling “Not Right” or “Off”
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Difficulty Remembering
  • Fatigue or Low Energy
  • Confusion
  • Drowsiness
  • Trouble Falling Asleep
  • Emotional Disturbances
  • Irritability
  • Sadness
  • Nervousness
  • Anxiety
  • ...and more

If you or your child experience one or more of these symptoms after a significant blow or hit to the head or body, a concussion should be assumed and treated as soon as possible.
