Concussion Management

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury caused by a blow or jolt to the head or upper body that causes the brain to move rapidly back and forth. This impact affects brain function.


No two concussions are alike. Symptoms vary amongst individuals, and they may last for days, weeks or even longer. They may also range from mild to severe and can be a combination of physical, cognitive and behavioural changes. Symptoms may appear immediately following injury or within a couple of days. If you think you have sustained a concussion, you should seek medical attention immediately.

Working with Skill Builders

Following assessment at our Barrie facility, you will work with our physiotherapists who focus their services in neurological and vestibular rehabilitation. The majority of people who sustain a concussion will recovery fully however symptoms may persist and require additional care. When needed our Occupational Therapists who are dedicated to brain rehabilitation will help manage more complex concussions symptoms such as memory, distractibility, fatigue or light sensitivity.

Our team treats all concussions no matter how they have been acquired and will assist with any paperwork related to third party funding as needed.
