You do not require a doctor or healthcare provider to oversee your progress through this course, however you should not engage in the activities within this course without first consulting with your doctor. This course is meant to provide general information and does not replace your healthcare provider.
Enrolment in this course does not constitute a doctor patient relationship between you and any of the instructors within this course. This course is meant for educational purposes only to provide an evidence-based approach and outline for a typical program of care. Certain patients have nuances to their individual situation that would not be possible for the clinicians to accurately assess in a virtual care platform.
Although screen sensitivity is a common symptom following concussion, there is no evidence to suggest that looking at screens is harmful to recovery or will cause any negative effect. We recommend reducing the brightness of your screen if need be or listening to the audio. The best option however is to gradually increase your screen viewing throughout the course as this is also a form of therapy!
This course also includes the Concussion Fix community and support group. You can keep access to the material for as long as you like for less than the cost of your daily coffee! This course is meant to be an encyclopedia; a reference to refer back to whenever you need!
No! This course is not meant to replace your healthcare providers, but rather to support your current care.
Yes! They are here to help! Unfortunately, due to medicolegal reasons, certain questions relating to your personal case cannot be answered by anyone other than your healthcare provider.
We don’t allow people to take only portions of the program because what many people think are their issues are actually not their issues. So we have an all or none rule with the program to ensure its effectiveness. It’s also a problem because many PCS issues are intertwined and patients may feel that their symptoms are related to one specific area, but if they don’t address the other areas, treatment on that specific area will not be effective. So it’s important to really come at this from all angles! And that’s the approach we take.
