What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a traumatic brain Injury. Put simply, a concussion changes the way our brain functions, causing it to work less optimally. It may be caused either by a direct blow to the head, face, neck or elsewhere on the body with an “impulsive” force transmitted to the head. You do not have to hit your head to have a concussion. A Concussion may or may not involve loss of consciousness. Symptoms can start immediately or after a period of time.

Why OMNI Evidence Based Concussion Care

We treat each patient and each concussion as a truly unique scenario as no 2 head injuries are alike. We do not use a cookie-cutter approach to managing each concussion. Our team will perform a through assessment of concentration, cognitive function, balance and vision in order to identify your specific symptoms to provide a specific treatment plan. You initial screen may include:

  • Computerized neurocognitive testing
  • Balance testing
  • Strength and Coordination testing
  • Screening of visual motor skills
  • Vestibular (or equilibrium) testing
  • Gait assessment
  • Generalized neurological screen
  • Orthopedic assessment of secondary injuries (e.g. neck, shoulders)
Baseline Testing Available

Prevention is key. A Baseline test is a battery of test performed on a non-injured individual in order to create a health record of their brain and cognitive function pre-injury. In the unfortunate event of head injury, we can use these pre-injury results to help determine when an individual has fully recovered.
