Concussion

Concussion has become a major public health concern affecting individuals of all ages. Lack of knowledge of both the signs and symptoms of a concussion drives the fact that concussions, especially in youth, tend to go unreported. In consequence, proper management of the injury often does not occur.

In light of these issues, we would like to introduce you to an innovative concussion program. Joint Physiotherapy is certified in the Shift Concussion Management Program (www.shiftconcussion.ca): a full-service concussion management program supporting baseline testing, post-injury care, return-to-play preparation, education, and prevention strategies.
