Concussion Awareness & Baseline Testing




           
Following the direction of the OMHA on their results and feedback on the effectiveness of Baseline Concussion Testing for minor hockey players, the EHMHA executive has made the decision to move the concussion baseline testing for representative hockey players from EHMHA from a MANDATORY requirement to an OPTIONAL choice, for players participating in this upcoming 2018-19 season.              

          
We encourage those who wish to continue with the Baseline testing for their son or daughter to please contact Erin Physiotherapy at the following link for further information and booking of an appointment: https://www.erinphysio.ca/concussion-therapy-baseline-testing/

For further details on related information or questions on this change in EHMHA policy and procedure, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]

One of the most valuable tools is a 26-minute Hockey Canada-endorsed video on thinkfirst.ca which provides a comprehensive overview of concussions in a kid/parent/ coach friendly way.
