Facts About Concussion Management Vancouver
A concussion is basically the disruption in neurological functioning. This causes a biochemical imbalance within brain cells as well as decreased blood flow and temporary energy deficits within the brain. When a concussion occurs, the brain suffers an energy crisis, reflexes, slow reaction and thinking times.
A player should be immediately removed from play, assessed and placed on full rest in order to recover from the energy deficit when a concussion detected. As per our concussion specialists in Equinox Integrative Wellness Center, any mental or physical activity, in the immediate days following a concussion can delay the process of recovery and should be avoided until the athlete is completely symptom-free.

How Does The Concussion Management Work In Vancouver?
When the brain is in this low energy state, it has been well established that the brain is extremely vulnerable to additional trauma, where even little impacts can lead to another concussion; and these second concussions can trigger severe brain injuries with potentially permanent or fatal outcomes.
A full neurological check-up is the primary stage of concussion management, after that the patient is instructed to follow our Computerized Neurocognitive Baseline Test for the further treatment. Through our well-studied clinical neuroscientific assessments we can measure every area of brain function that could potentially become affected following a concussion.
