Complete Concussion Management Certification for HealthMax’s Brampton Clinic
From Brampton politician Eve Adams, to the epidemic sweeping youth sports, concussions seem to be everywhere in the news.
Concussions are brain injuries and, as medical researchers continue to learn more about the short- and long-term effects of concussions, especially on the young, still developing brains of children involved in contact sports, there is heightened sensitivity to the issue among medical professionals, parents, politicians and sports officials.
Of particular concern are the effects of concussions on brain function. Among other symptoms, concussions can affect short-term memory, the ability to concentrate, and cause irritability and other personality and psychological issues.
At the forefront of research, early detection and proper treatment of concussions are seen as primary means of reducing symptoms and long-term consequences.
HealthMax Brampton is Now CCM Certified
Complete Concussion Management (CCM) is Canada’s largest concussion research network. CCM trains and certifies medical professionals in concussion clinics across the country using the most up-to-date and leading-edge medical information and best practices.
- Baseline Tests: At the core of CCM’s program, comprehensive baseline tests that measure every area of brain function, conducted before concussions are experienced, help our doctors and therapists diagnose concussions sooner and more accurately.
- Specialized Treatment: By comparing baseline test results with post-concussion findings, our doctors are able to provide more effective concussion treatments and rehabilitation procedures that minimize long-term symptoms.
- Reintegration Programs: Returning to full activity too soon is one of the major contributing factors to long-term concussion symptoms. CCM’s Return-to-Play and Return-to-Learn processes help concussion sufferers gradually and purposely reintegrate into daily life, learning environments and sport activities to help prevent further injury and promote higher rates of success.
It’s important to note that concussions are not exclusive to athletics. They are common injuries in motor vehicle accidents, slips and falls or from any blow to the head.
