Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation sessions will be prescribed or recommended once our physiotherapists conclude that you would need personal support and guidance when recovering from an injury.

Concussion

Rehabilitation Overview

Our rehabilitation service ensures that you are well cared for during your most critical state - post-injury. We recommend starting the rehabilitation process as soon as possible from the moment your attending physician recommends a rehabilitation procedure.

We are fully equipped and fully staffed to serve you at the different phases of physical rehabilitation. In general, the rehabilitation phases include the following: the Healing Phase, the Mending Phase, the Reconditioning Phase, and the Function Phase.

The healing phase is where we allow the body to go through its natural healing process. This phase would be the longest phase of the rehabilitation process, depending on the severity of the injury. The mending phase is where we exercise the body to regain some form of mobility and function while considering any long-term and permanent physiological change to the body without aggravating it any further. The reconditioning phase is when we focus on regaining muscular strength and durability to allow it to support the body post-injury. And lastly, the function phase, where we help the patient get back as close as possible to their pre-injury body functions.

Our clinic has all the necessary equipment, training, exercise methodology, and guidance for successful rehabilitation.

Concussion

Post concussion symptoms can be mild like headaches, or can be quite severe including dizziness, imbalance, or difficulty sleeping. Our Concussion rehabilitation service focuses on minimizing the effects of post-concussion symptoms to help you return to your original performance as soon and as safely as possible. After recieving your recommendation from your attending physician we will tailor a custom rehabilitation program to suit your current state, and guide you in gradually increasing your session intensity, and ultimately your eventual return to your original state, or to achieve your full potential in your new physiology. The Sports Injury Clinic is now recognized by Complete Concussion Management Inc (CCMI) and joins a network of clinics around the world offering evidence based concussion care.

The focus of rehabilitation is restore the patients physical ability to its previous top performing condition. The process of rehabilitation requires the expertise of various rehabilitation practitioners depending on the type and severity of the injury or condition. For example a stroke survivor would need a number of rehabilitation practitioners, including but not limited to a physiotherapist, a speech therapist, an occupational therapist, and whatever therapies the patient's attending physician may recommend or prescribe. We are fully staffed to serve your personal physical rehabilitation needs as prescribed by your doctor.
