When someone sustains a concussion, there are many key considerations on their path to healing. Proper nutrition, metabolic recovery, and of course, sleep. But exactly what effect does a concussion…
Our courses for sports and schools are designed to equip those on the front-lines with a basic understanding of what a concussion is, how to recognize them, and how to safely manage a concussed athlete back into the classroom and the sporting environment.
Understanding what a concussion is, how to recognize them, and how to safely manage a concussed athlete back into the classroom and the sporting environment.
The health and safety of our athletes is the first priority for the Peterborough Lakers. This program and our partnership with CCMI and Total Physiotherapy have been an integral part of our player health management system this season. This concussion protocol offers our staff and athletes piece of mind should a player suffer a concussion.
The Complete Concussion Management protocol is an excellent resource for providing a comprehensive, streamlined management strategy for concussions in any sports organization. This program is a perfect fit for all levels – from our Olympic teams to grassroots level freestyle skiing.
The Langley Rams are committed to player safety. We have a team doctor and trained staff to ensure players are taken care of on and off the field. We are proud to partner with CCMI and Rebound Sport and Spine to offer the best-in-class care and to ensure the future health of our players.
Though concussions can’t always be prevented. As a community, we can work together to recognize the symptoms, support treatment and recovery, and reduce the risk of additional injuries during recovery. The CCMI program is a tool and resource that brings us together in this endeavour. Partnering with CCMI has been a positive step forward in our updated concussion policies and protocols.
As an organization, our mission is to develop great hockey players both on and off the ice, and most importantly, to protect the health and safety of our athletes. The implementation of this concussion protocol helps us to achieve our goal, allowing our athletes to play the sport they love for years to come.
Taking the CCMI course has provided me with the knowledge and necessary tools to recognize and manage concussions effectively, as well as educate my surrounding community. The monthly research updates allow me to stay current with the best evidence available which enables me to provide optimal care.
We are delighted to line up our clinic with CCMI. These guys are global leaders in the development of evidence-based and data-driven healthcare solutions specifically aimed at improving concussion management and patient outcomes.
As a clinic owner I really value knowing that every clinician I hire is providing the absolute best treatment possible. Having 10 certified CCMI practitioners gives me that confidence, and we are able to test and treat hundreds of kids and teens in our community because of it.
The research that CCMI covers is extensive. The science of concussion is clear and concise with this certified program. Protocols of management are evidence-based and attend to diagnosis criteria, early assessment, treatment of both acute and post-concussion syndromes, recovery principles, and safe return to sport.
CCMI has completely changed the way that I evaluate and treat concussions. I have seen such amazing results with not only acute concussions but with chronic PCS patients. In addition to being great for patient care, it was one of the best continuing education courses I have taken.
Our team at Ponoka Physiotherapy has seen a marked increase in the successful, safe return to sport and work following our implementation of the CCMI baseline and post-concussion protocols at our clinic.
The research updates that CCMI gives us are an easy way of staying up to date with the literature. This gives me the confidence that I am working with the latest research and not missing out on any new findings or treatment alternatives.
