Oakville Optihealth Clinic is a proud Complete Concussion Management (CCM) Clinic
There are many different views on what constitutes a concussion but most experts agree that a concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury.
Concussions may be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head and can even be caused by a blow to the body that results in the rapid movement of the head.
All concussions need to be taken very serious.
Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness.
Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury or even death.
It is alway better to error on the side of caution when it comes to dealing with concussions. All athletes should have pre-screen concussion assessments completed at the beginning of each season to ensure the best possible care for all athletes.
