COMPLETE CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT
In-Balance is very excited to be the first clinic in Tasmania to be registered with Complete Concussion Management Inc.™ (CCMI). Linda and Scott join a network of clinics around the world offering evidence-based concussion care. As such they are able to assess acute concussion (including screening for more serious injury), provide guidance regarding safe return to everyday activities, school, work and sport along with providing rehabilitation for recovery from post-concussion symptoms.
What is a concussion?
A concussion is a brain injury caused by acceleration or deceleration of the brain within the skull following a significant impact to the head or elsewhere on the body. The impact causes a biochemical imbalance within the brain cells, resulting in decreased blood flow and temporary energy deficits within the brain. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, headache, pressure in the head, neck pain, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, or balance problems, among others.
