Our Approach

Concussion care requires specific expertise.

Concussion recovery requires the partnership of healthcare professionals with expertise in concussion to offer diagnostic support, to ensure reasonable certainty that resolution has taken place, and to offer timely and appropriate intervention for those who are slow-to-recover, or for more complicated or chronic conditions.

Our Best Practice Approach to Care

Current evidence-based recommendations for concussion evaluation includes an interdisciplinary framework, with emphasis on oculomotor, vestibular, cervical spine, autonomic, and psychological assessments.

From baseline testing to assessment to Return-to-Play, we evaluate and treat patients on an individual basis. The clinical, sporting, and research communities agree—no student or youth-athlete should return to play until cleared by a healthcare professional with expertise in concussion. We support our athletes and patients from injury to recovery with evidence-based and best-practice standards.

Clinical Teaching Facility

ACC is proud to be a training facility for the University of British Columbia for sports medicine physicians, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, and occupational therapy students. As a designated centre, ACC is committed to educating and advancing the knowledge in the field of concussion.

Dr. Cirelle Rosenblatt, Founder & Clinical Director, is also a Clinical Instructor in the UBC Faculty of Medicine.

ImPACT Credentialed

The ImPACT Test is supported by more than 250 peer-reviewed clinical research studies. It is the only FDA approved concussion evaluation instrument and a fundamental element of ACC’s overall approach to concussion management.

ACC’s Founder & Clinical Director, Dr. Cirelle Rosenblatt, R.Psych., is BC’s only Certified ImPACT Clinician. As a medical professional with specialty training in ImPACT use, Dr. Rosenblatt views ImPACT data comparatively with pre-injury baseline testing, evaluates pre- and post-injury test performances, and coordinates safe and timely Return to Sport and school.

Valued partnerships

ACC is proud to be the official concussion provider to the BC Alpine BC Ski Team, and the Kamloops Broncos, and supports schools, sports academies, physicians, and others throughout BC and the lower Mainland in meeting best-practice standards in concussion management. The aim of these partnerships is to ensure prevention and safety in Return-to-Play, and to support healthy engagement and continuation of participation in safe play.


ACC’s best-practice standards and dedicated concussion service have made it a valuable clinical and data resource for universities, industries, professional groups, researchers, and clinical training and placement programs in the BC area, lower mainland, and on an international level.

With over 2,500 patients assessed and treated since the inception of the clinic, and accompanying novel, high caliber, and evidence-informed outcome measures completed for each patient, ACC is sought out by leading concussion research groups as a collaborator, and contributor to novel research, in addition to novel research generated and promoted by its own clinical research team.

ACC is proud to support the advancement of research, training & knowledge to the assessment & treatment of concussion.
