We are excited to share an exciting new service that our clinic is now offering. Momentum Healing Arts is now qualified as a Complete Concussion Management Centre with comprehensive baseline testing for all sport disciplines and post injury concussion (eg. car accidents). Read below for more complete information. Be sure to let your friends and family know.
Although you may not always be able to completely avoid a concussion, you can take steps NOW to ensure that injuries are managed safely and effectively!
Studies have consistently shown that well after an athlete has recovered from the initial symptoms of concussion, there may still be deficiencies in other systems. During this period of incomplete recovery the brain is extremely vulnerable to stress and secondary injury. Allowing a player to return too early places them at risk for serious and potentially permanent or fatal brain injury!
Comprehensive baseline testing includes all areas of potential deficits seen in concussion injuries including neurocognitive function (visual, spatial, auditory memory, concentration, etc.), reaction time, balance, visual tracking speed, and motor strength testing. In the event of an injury, these specific tests provide our specially trained doctors with specific information about each athlete so that a more informed and safer decision can be made as to when they return to play!
Best of all, concussion baseline testing is covered through secondary health benefits!
Sign up today to have your baseline test completed as an individual, or with your sports team to receive a group discount!
