- 30% of concussions occur at training
- Fewer than 10% of sport related concussions involve a loss of consciousness like blacking out, seeing stars
- 47% of athletes do not report feeling any symptoms after a concussive blow
The first and most important step in managing concussions comes before injury happens. A Baseline Test measures brain functions affected following concussion. When an athlete sustains a concussion, we retest the athlete and compare post-injury to baseline parameters to make an accurate diagnosis and establish when they are healthy and safe to return to sport.
Pre season Baseline testing is available to individual athletes and teams.
CCM Testing for Individuals: Cost: $110 13 yrs and over; $85 12 yrs and under
CCM Team Testing: Call for pricing
Scat3 testing: $45/individual athlete; $25/athlete for groups of 10 or more.
Dealing with a Concussion?
If you have a concussion, call us at 780 464-5915 for an initial concussion screening assessment. This appointment will be done at our clinic. Following this, a priority appointment will be made to see a Sport Medicine Physician at Health Pointe Medical Center within 7 days of the concussion.
Our Athletic therapists, Physiotherapists and Sport Medicine Doctors work together to move you safely through a “Return To Learn” program to minimize academic impairments and a sport specific “Return to Play” program to minimize risk of re-injury. The return to play program is designed to safely and progressively prepare you for the fitness, skills, movements and strategies that are required for your sport.
Throughout your recovery, doctors and therapists communicate with each other to make the final return to play decision.
Cost: Initial Assessment: $120 – includes instruction for return to learn/sport and nutrition guidelines
Follow up treatments: $70
Concussion Treatments are covered as Physiotherapy or Athletic Therapy by many insurance benefit plans.
