4 Characteristics of a good concussion clinic
Many rehabilitation clinics and professionals have been jumping on the concussion rehab bandwagon in recent years, without necessarily offering services that truly help patients.
To help patients navigate through the various competent and *ahem* less competent concussion care providers out there, the Canadian Concussion Collaborative published a guide for patients to help them navigate rehab offerings, you can find it here: https://casem-acmse.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/CCES-PUB-CCC-4Qs-E-FINAL.pdf
This guide emphasizes use of up-to-date clinical guidelines, evidence-based practice, and access to a multi-disciplinary team of experts.
I am happy to report that Physio Avantex meets the criteria for a good concussion clinc as set out by the CCC!
