The Concussion Evaluation and Treatment Program was created under the guidance of AXiO’s emergency physician Dr. J. Scott Delaney, head physician to the Cirque du Soleil and recipient of the Dr. Tom Pashby Sports Safety Fund Award honouring outstanding contributions toward the prevention of catastrophic injuries in sport and recreational activities. Dr. Delaney and Dr. Gabrielle Ostiguy are AXiO Health Group’s current Concussion Program physicians downtown and Dr. Gaetan Drolet takes care of patients at the AXiO Sport Medicine Clinic in Vaudreuil. They work with AXiO’s team of osteopaths, athletic therapists and physiotherapists including Sarah El Queisi and Paule Dontigny, both specialising in vestibular rehabilitation.
In collaboration with Dr. Paule Hardy, neuropsychologist and consultant to the National Hockey League, AXiO offers a concussion management program designed to treat individuals with physical, social, cognitive and emotional symptoms related to concussion. Our program offers support services to patients and their families to help them better understand and cope with symptoms.
This program is available to individuals and groups who wish to be evaluated prior to involvement in exercise or performing arts activities after head injury has occurred. AXiO Health Group’s Concussion Management Program includes the same tests that are currently used by the National Hockey League, the Canadian Football League, the Canadian Olympic teams, the Cirque du Soleil and other elite and professional sports teams and performing arts companies.
