OUVERTURE. Ils ont décidé de s'unir contre un fléau de la santé, qui fait des ravages et qu'on entend de plus en plus parler dans les dernières années.
Qui ça, ils?
Médecins, neuropsychologue, kinésiologue, ostéopathe, physiothérapeutes, psychoéducatrice et thérapeute du sport.
La liste est bien garnie et pourrait même s'allonger d'ici les prochains mois. Tous ses experts du domaine de la santé sont spécialisés en un domaine: les commotions cérébrales.
Ensemble, ils ont formé le C-Centre, le centre de commotions cérébrales de l'Outaouais qui vaut son nom à un acronyme comprenant aussi l'éducation, la neuropsychologie, la thérapie du sport, la réadaptation et les évaluations.
Gatineau, March 29, 2017 - More than 3.5 million North Americans – including many young athletes – suffer concussions every year, and a significant proportion experiences multiple symptoms and sometimes long-term effects which can include headaches, difficulty concentrating, and depression. Despite the rising prevalence of concussions, however, many patients do not receive adequate and timely treatment, and this can delay and even jeopardize their recovery. Research shows that a multidisciplinary approach – combining several healthcare professionals – is the most effective at treating and managing the symptoms of concussion and at getting patients on the road to recovery.
This is why next week’s launch of a new medical centre in Gatineau devoted to treating concussions is exciting news for the residents of this region. The C-CENTRE, located at 455 boulevard de l’Hôpital, Gatineau (Quebec), will open Monday, April 3 and it will be the first centre in Gatineau/Outaouais to offer concussion treatment delivered by multiple healthcare professionals for optimal recovery outcomes. Patients at the C-CENTRE will have access to doctors, neuropsychologists, athletic therapists, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, osteopaths, and psychoeducators.
