Due to his on field experience with team sports Rob has completed the most up to date, research based training in concussion and return to activity following head injury. This involves a comprehensive assessment and rehabilitation exercises to return to play, much like any other injury. Returning too soon can cause setbacks so this approach ensures a graded return to activity with your health as the main priority.
