Evidence-Based Concussion Care
By April 1, 2019, Active Balance Health Centre will be the first Complete Concussion Management licensed clinic in the Okotoks area. Dr. Wuest is dedicated to helping patients overcome symptoms of concussion appropriately and return to game play or work safely. Through “Multimodal baseline testing”, brain function is assessed using cognitive and motor tests, BEFORE an individual sustains an injury to the head or neck. After baseline testing, early treatment and rehabilitation are critical to improving concussion symptoms. Dr. Wuest will also determine an individualized “Return to Learn, Work & Play” protocol for each patient, based on progress and symptoms. Managing a head injury appropriately is crucial for a safe recovery and ultimately determines the rest of an athlete’s career.
