Specialty Medical Care

At iScope Concussion and Pain Clinics, patients are seen by a team of extensively trained medical and rehabilitation staff. Unlike any other clinic, we provide every discipline you need, under one roof.

Concussion

Concussion or a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a bump, blow, jolt or hit to the head that affects brain function. This can be caused by an impact to the head during a fall or motor vehicle accident, or during contact sport injuries.

Our medical team takes a collaborative approach in the diagnosis and treatment of your injury, by employing both sub-specialized physicians and rehabilitation professionals, we can treat the physical, cognitive, emotional and sleep-related symptoms that you may experience.

Headache & Migraine

A migraine is a common neurological disease that causes a variety of symptoms, most notably a throbbing or pulsing headache on one area of your head. The quality may vary from day to day and the onset may be sudden or gradual, ranging in length from less than an hour to several days. Migraine can often lead to nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, visual disturbances, tingling, or speech difficulty.

We take an evidence-based interdisciplinary approach to managing migraines, starting with a consultation from our Neurologist.

Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain is long standing pain that persists beyond the usual recovery period. This can be weeks to months or even years. Persistent pain can prevent you from partaking in your daily activities, working and even enjoying everyday life.

Our team can treat chronic pain in many different ways. From pharmacological interventions,

Vertigo & Dizziness

Dizziness is an overall feeling of being unbalanced. Vertigo is a sensation that your head or space is moving or spinning. This feeling may be barely noticeable or it may be so severe that you find it difficult to keep your balance.

Many balance issues can result from a dysfunction of the vestibular system, joint, muscular, or nervous systems. Our team of medical and rehabilitation practitioners, specifically our trained vestibular therapists, will collaborate on a treatment plan to help relieve your symptoms.

Parkison's Disease & Movement Disorders

Movement disorders describe a group of neurological conditions that cause increased abnormal movements, which may be voluntary or involuntary. Some common types include Dystonia, Essential Tremor, and Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological movement disorder that causes uncontrollable movements such as shaking, stiffness and difficulty with balance and coordination.

Our team is able to help manage the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease through various forms of physical rehabilitation, medications, and more.

Seizures & Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behaviour, sensations and sometimes loss of awareness. A traumatic brain injury may give rise to seizures and epilepsy, with the likelihood of developing seizures related to the severity of the injury.

Successful management of patients with seizures or epilepsy begins with the establishment of accurate diagnosis followed by an tailored treatment plan.

Memory Impairments & Dementia

Visual Disturbances

Concussions and other nuerological disorders can have a direct impact on the visual system. When visual problems occur our team of Neuro-Ophthalmologists, Neuro-Optometrists and Vision Therapist are able to help assess and diagnose the origin of these visual disturbances, in addition to developing a patient-specific treatment plan.
