We offer OHIP-funded evaluation and concussion treatments in Toronto (in-person) and virtually (Ontario-wide) to adults with concussions. Our medical care is quarterbacked by medical doctors. For those who prefer in-person concussion treatment in Toronto, you can receive care at our Scarborough office. For those patients who prefer virtual care, consultations are available from anywhere in the province. Many concussion treatments (e.g., CBT-i, progressive sub-symptom threshold exercise program, psychotherapy, occupational therapy, etc.) are also equally effective virtually. To be eligible for virtual OHIP-Funded medical care, you will need to attend 1-2 in-person appointments at our clinic in Scarborough, Toronto.
You can now have access to guidance on the best treatments for concussions until your recovery including concussion after care sessions that you may require. Access to post-concussion syndrome treatment virtually can help support you if you live in areas where you may have fewer concussion treatment options. Patients are free to use any part of Toronto Concussion Clinic’s post-concussion treatment recommendations. You can use our advice alongside those of your other care providers. You can also use our treatment advice as part of a home concussion treatment program. Our MDs will send you an email of recommendations discussed during your consultations so that you can share them with your family doctor or other members of your concussion care team. Our medical doctors are are available for consultation to you until your recovery including any concussion after care sessions you may require.
