Physiotherapy can help ill, injured or disabled people recover movement and function to their full potential.

Why a BASELINE Test?

Concussions can produce a wide array of symptoms, which poses a challenge for coaches, trainers, parents and health professionals involved in the care of an injured athlete. The time-course for recovery also varies widely from athlete to athlete, making it impossible to employ a “cookie-cutter” approach to concussion rehabilitation and return-to-play timelines.

Currently, there is no reliable diagnostic test or marker that can be used to identify a concussion when it’s occurred, or conversely, when it’s resolved.

For this reason, a growing emphasis has been placed on objective baseline testing protocols that can be used to track an athlete’s recovery and serve as a tangible measurement for return-to-play readiness. By measuring an athlete’s “normal” level of functioning, we are better able to gauge the level of impairment that may exist post-injury by performing comparative testing.

We use ImPACT at baseline to assess neurocognitive function (memory, reaction time, processing speed, etc.). We also assess certain areas of physical performance such as balance.

Back Health

We posted this video earlier, but it is so important that we decided to share it again.

At Middlesex Spine and Sport Clinic, we make sure all our patients are aware of the importance of core strengthen and endurance to help prevent pain anywhere in the body. Being proactive about back pain and beginning a daily routine of exercises can help prevent future injury.

Concussions 101

One of the best words to use to describe the NHL this year is Concussion.  Concussions are not only affecting NHL players, they are beginning to be more prevalent in minor hockey and soccer too.  I also bet you didn’t know that concussions are one of the more common injuries in female hockey players!  The following is a great video that describes what happens to the brain, the signs and symptoms of a concussion and the proper procedures that need to be taken before somebody can return to activity after a concussion.

Safe Snow Removal

With the first snow fall happening today, it is a good time to go over some tips that will help prevent back injuries while shoveling snow this winter.

  • Shovel frequently: Try not to let all the snow pile up before starting to shovel; frequent shoveling allows you to move smaller amount of snow which will be less strenuous.
  • Pick the right shovel: Use a lightweight shovel, preferably a pusher-type.  If you use a metal shovel, spray it with Teflon first, so snow will not stick to it.
  • Push, don’t throw: If possible it is always best to push the snow to the side rather than throwing it.  This helps to avoid lifting heavy amount of snow.
  • Bend at your knees and hips: It is important to use your legs and arms to lift the snow, while keeping your back straight or neutral.
  • Take a break: If you feel tired or short of breath, stop and take a rest.  If you feel any sudden back or chest pain, stop immediately.  If the chest pain persists, see a doctor immediately.  If the back pain persists, Middlesex Spine and Sport Clinic is here to help.

High School Athletes

As a way to help our community, I would like to introduce our High School Athlete program.  Any in-season high school athlete will be able to receive complimentary care at Middlesex Spine and Sport Clinic.  We feel that the high school sports season is already short enough, without missing time due to injury. If we can help athletes get back as quick as possible, we can help maximize their high school experience.  We do ask that all athletes that come to the clinic bring one non-perishable food item that we will donate to the local food bank.

Any athlete taking part in this program will still receive the same high quality care, which includes Active Release Technique and Medical Acupuncture, that has come to be expected at Middlesex Spine and Sport.

Please call our office at 519-913-5415 or click the link at the top of the page to request an appointment.
