Follow the ‘Stay Home’ Protocol
We know that you want nothing better but to continue to recover from your traumatic brain injury or concussion. As a patient at Broadview concussion clinic in Ottawa, you know the importance of our treatments, customized to your particular head injury. However, as long as the social distancing measures are in place, we are unable to see most of our patients. For this reason, we want to make sure they follow the right ‘stay home’ protocol.
MS, Vertigo and Concussion: Recovery at Home
While we believe in personalized treatments in order to recover from a brain injury, we also want to combat the spread of COVID-19 in Ottawa. Therefore, we encourage you to engage in activities that will help you recover while staying at home. Below are some key tips you should follow until you are able to visit our clinic again:
1.Rest & SleepRest and sleep are two of the most beneficial factors when it comes to concussion recovery. Both are known for boosting immunity, something we all need during this pandemic.
2. Light WorkoutsModerate exercise is also helpful to recover from a concussion, vertigo, MS or any type of brain injury. Although we need to stick to certain social distancing measurements at the moment, the situation can change anytime. At the moment, all city parks are closed in Ottawa until the 30th of June. However, walking through a park is permitted as long as you do not linger or gather with others. Regardless of the type of exercise you choose, be sure to discuss your workouts with your doctor or chiropractic neurologist before engaging.
3. Diet & NutritionMake sure you stick to a balanced diet, and avoid those foods that tend to promote inflammation, such as carbs, sugars and red meat.
