Concussion! What do I do?
Our own Dr. Winne Meeuwisse is an author on the International Olympic Committee (IOC) "Consesus statement on concussion in sport". As the medical director for the National Hockey League (NHL), his medical expertise in concussion is extensive. His work has influenced how we treat concussions based on the newest findings and treatment methods.
If you suspect you have or have been diagnosed with a sport-related concussion within the last six weeks and are 13 years or older, be sure to register for our concussion program through the Rapid Access Sport Injury Clinic to be seen by one of our Sport Medicine Physicians.
Sport Related concussions need to follow the guidelines born out of the Consensus and published by Parachute Canada and the Canadian Concussion Collaborative - multidisciplinary, physician led management and treatment.
