What do I do if I think I have a Concussion? - TRCC Total Rehabilitation and Chiropractic Centre

Please wait...

  1. Monitor yourself or your child for signs and symptoms which would denote the need for a hospital visit. These can be found on the attached CATA reference card under the “management” section.
  2. Call TRCC and book an appointment with the Athletic Therapist. It is best to book an appointment as soon as possible.
  3. Your appointment at TRCC will include the following:
    • A thorough concussion evaluation in addition to any associated musculoskeletal injuries
    • A discussion of BOTH Return to Learn/Work and Return to Play protocols
    • Time for all questions or concerns you may have
  4. If a concussion is detected you will be asked to book an appointment with your family physician for medical diagnosis. You will be given a letter detailing our findings to give to the physician.
  5. You will be given an at home protocol to follow in order to best care for and manage the concussion symptoms. We will also treat the associated musculoskeletal injuries. This two part approach to care will ensure the best chance for a timely and safe recovery.
  6. Upon full completion of the Return to Learn/Work and stage 4 of the Return to Play protocols, you will:
    • Come to TRCC for a thorough return to play evaluation
    • Make a follow up appointment with your family physician
    • Along with your Athletic Therapist and physician, make a return to play plan/decision
  7. If signs and symptoms persist beyond a 2 week period, you will be entered into the second phase of our concussion management protocol. In this phase you will see one or more of our clinical practitioners for treatment based on the specific symptoms you or your child are experiencing. Every concussion is different. That is why we tailor our care specifically to you and your symptoms in order to ensure the best possible outcome. If symptoms continue to persist following additional care within our facility we will refer externally to the appropriate practitioner.

Here's an example of what just one session of Fascial Remodeling can do! This before & after are an hour apart.

RMT Asha started working with this client to prep her for breast reduction surgery. They did 2 prep sessions prior to the reduction, and this treatment was their first one since the surgery 3 weeks ago.

The client reported feeling more breast congestion on her left side post op, but as you can see her entire torso was congested (1). Her whole right side was pulled up (3) and rotated (2), and most of her weight was on her left leg (4). After the treatment, the torso girth reduced, her rotation relaxed (see the belly button position), and her weight was evenly distributed on both legs.

Breast work was modified according to the client's current activity level, surgeon's recommendation, and scar quality.
