Addressing a need for change in concussion management.
ACC is dedicated to positive change through the advancement of concussion care; to evidence-based rehabilitation and the most complete recoveries without unnecessary loss of life. Concussion is a treatable injury and we are committed to providing and improving the standard of care in B.C., in B.C. medical and rehabilitation institutions, schools, sports organizations, recreational groups, and the greater B.C. community.
A Brief History
Advance Concussion was founded by Dr. Cirelle Rosenblatt in 2013, based on a growing sense that British Columbia needed to mobilize and act on the silent epidemic of concussion. Lives had been lost or irrevocably altered, and B.C required an organized, specialized, true interdisciplinary team, providing the most effective and efficient concussion treatment possible.
Don't accept that what's happening is just a case of others' suffering or you'll find that you're joining in the turning away.

In The Community
ACC consults with independent and community schools, sports academies, sports and coaching organizations, insurance companies and physicians from Children's Hospital to Whistler Sea-to-Sky doctors. We make every effort to educate, collaborate, better inform and advance concussion care and management in our B.C. community.
Modeling best practices, demonstrating effective, efficient, recoveries and reliable, repeatable, healthy outcomes—ACC has demonstrated that improved concussion practices, from prevention to rehabilitation, are possible in B.C.
In January 2016, ACC moved into its new Broadway location to manage the growing demand for best-practice concussion care. Fully equipped with a large exertion & movement area, this expanded location provides space to accommodate our no-wait list policy, minimizing wait times to best manage the spectrum of presenting injuries.
We can also further accommodate our growing staff of psychologists, physiotherapists, athletic therapists, kinesiologists, occupational therapists, sports medicine physicians, and an extensive collaborative care network to help support more complicated recoveries.
