As the Head Office of Shift Concussion Management all of our Practitioners are trained in our internationally recognized training platform by the same name (www.shiftconcussion.ca). We are dedicated to providing a high standard of care for all individuals and athletes who are at risk of sustaining a concussion. Managing a concussion thoroughly, in an individualized manner, and with evidence-based techniques is the best way to get our patients back to work, school, and daily activity safely.
When to go to the hospital:
Emergency evaluation is warranted in situations of deteriorating mental status such as increasing confusion and difficulty recognizing people or places. Other symptoms requiring immediate medical attention include worsening headache; worsening nausea or vomiting, and excessive drowsiness or lethargy.
When a concussion is suspected, we recommend booking an initial assessment as early as possible with one of Shift’s healthcare providers.
Some symptoms that can be helped by our Practitioners include:
- Visual Changes
- Sleep Irregularities
- Motion sensitivity
- Balance and walking changes
- Mood changes
- Memory changes/confusion
