Concussion Care

What is the CAP concussion care plan?

CAP utilizes highly effective diagnostics and treatments widely used by elite athletes: Brain Gauge sensory motor testing technology and the Symptom Tree. These tools allow us to trace the root causes of the symptoms a patient is experiencing. 

The CAP Care Plan is generated by analyzing the diagnostic tests and aligning them with the appropriate treatment, therapists, and rehabilitation providers. The test results may indicate the need for a wide range of therapeutic interventions such as ocular motor training, manual therapy, vestibular training, and nutrition.

FAQ

Is the treatment prescribed based on the diagnostic tests the same for everyone or is it individualized?

Every case is individualized to the results from each patient’s tests. The RAM technology measures neck function relative to sport-specific requirements to assess concussion risk, and mitigate that risk with scientifically designed, sport specific exercises, independently tailored for the specific nuances of the athlete, and on a case-by-case basis. The CAP care plan will detail the needs on a case-by-case basis.

Will I have one practitioner or will a team of practitioners be involved in my care?

Depending on your case, you may end up working with a team of trained therapists to help you in different areas of your rehabilitation. These may include physiotherapists, chiropractors, athletic therapists, massage therapists, and naturopathic doctors.

Are there specific concussions that would be well served by these offerings?

Whether you’re currently suffering from a recent concussion, had a concussion several months ago and the symptoms are still lingering, or if you had a concussion years ago and have never felt 100% recovered, you may benefit from testing and treatment. 

Are there some concussions that wouldn’t be helped by this treatment?

The response to treatment is different for every concussion, but the challenge for concussion care historically has been that the approach regardless of the individual is relatively standard. With the CAP technology we will be able to assess function in a way that will give the patient information about their function that can change the patient’s approach to managing their condition and improving their symptoms.

What can the patient expect during their initial testing?

The initial assessment for someone who has a suspected concussion or presenting with a concussion history will involve a detailed history and full physical examination. Following the history and physical exam, CAP testing will be conducted to better understand the brain function and neck strength. The total time for this assessment will be between 45 – 60 minutes.
