Early Concussion Assessment and Treatment (ECAT)
The Early Concussion Assessment and Treatment (ECAT) program is an interdisciplinary treatment program offered by Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Kinesiologists. The focus of ECAT is on education and reassurance in the early weeks following a mild concussion, as well as, treatment to facilitate a safe and durable return to work. Intervention in the ECAT Program may include vestibular rehabilitation, physiotherapy treatment, cognitive rehabilitation, occupational therapy treatment, and/or return to work services. Treatment is tailored to each Client’s individual needs. ECAT provides Clients with strategies to better manage symptoms, improve cognitive (thinking) and physical function, and promote recovery from concussion. The treatment team works with Clients and others involved in their rehabilitation to find the best solution for a supported return to work.
Services are offered in Surrey Newton, Vancouver, and Coquitlam.
