New Leading-Edge Concussion Centre Opens in Gatineau

New Leading-Edge Concussion Centre Opens in Gatineau

Press Release 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.
