At Physionorth Sports & Wellness Centre, we employ the Complete Concussion Management™ system, a full-service program that utilizes evidence-based testing, rehabilitation and treatments. To track progress, all CCMI clinics (including Physionorth Sports & Wellness Centre) maintain all baseline and post-injury files relating to the concussion. Your patient file can be accessed at any CCMI-affiliated clinic in Canada.
