How Can a Sports Medicine Physician Help with my Concussion?
At Advantage Sport Medicine & Physiotherapy a Sport Medicine Physician plays an integral role in the management of your concussion rehabilitation team, much like the quarterback on a football team.
On your initial visit, a thorough exam will be completed which will include a lengthy interview where the physician will ask about your symptoms (i.e. things that you are feeling/experiencing).
Following this interview, the physician will complete a thorough physical assessment where they will assess A COMBINATION OF:
- Balance/Vestibular System/Coordination
- Spatial awareness
If after this assessment there are further medical concerns they may refer you for further Diagnostic Imaging such as a CT scan or MRI. This, however, is very rare.
