Information night about the MyoWorx Concussion Prevention Program
Submitted By webmaster on Monday, September 24, 2018
To find out more, come to the MyoWorx presentation that will be held September 26th at 7pm in the Preston Auditorium Hall

The MyoWorx Concussion Prevention Program was developed by the creators of MyoWorx Concussion Treatment; an internationally renowned protocol that uses specialized electrotherapy and specific exercises to treat the symptoms of concussion.  Their new concussion prevention program centers around strengthening the neck and shoulders so that, if a hit occurs, the chance of sustaining a concussion is decreased.  Stronger neck muscles are able to absorb some of the force of a hit and reduce the back and forth whiplash movement that causes most of the damage during a concussion.

Structure:
 
-12-week program with one session per week
-Assessment by a registered physiotherapist (to determine baseline neck strength)
-Group exercise sessions with a registered kinesiologist
-The required equipment (exercise bands and weights) are included
-A home-based exercise program worksheet will be administered to be done in conjunction with the program
-Education session for athletes (parents welcome to join) on concussions (symptoms, the importance of reporting, other prevention strategies)
-Reassessment by a registered physiotherapist (to determine end of program neck strength and discuss progress)
-An end of program report is included and will outline neck strength progress and provide information regarding how to continue neck strengthening after the program has concluded.
