Northern Chiropractic & Physiotherapy is a certified Shift concussion rehabilitation clinic. Dr. Bradford completed the Shift Concussion program in May of 2015 and has been treating and rehabilitating concussion-like symptoms ever since.
The program is designed to educate and rehabilitate the patient appropriately according to their symptom presentation. Baseline testing and post-injury rehabilitation for concussion is becoming routine in the sports injury world, as concussions used to be treated by inactivity and rest. This new system allows the clinician to work with the patient to develop treatment and rehabilitation strategies to help recover from the concussion with an active approach. A concussion assessment usually takes around 1 hour and includes a comprehensive post-injury consultation and physical assessment. The purpose of the assessment is to get insight into the severity of your injury, and also to identify important impairments that may be leading to your symptoms.
Once the assessment is complete and the issue is well understood, a rehabilitation and treatment program will be tailored to address the patient’s needs. Give us a call or visit www.shiftconcussion.ca for more information.
