Concussion Clinic

 

You can’t just walk it off

All concussions are serious.

If you think you or someone else may have a suffered a concussion playing sport:

  • Don’t hide it
  • Take time to recover
  • Make an appointment with Axis

It’s better to play it safe and have your injury assessed by an experienced professional before you return to play, than risk further injury. We run Auckland’s most comprehensive sports concussion service, and it's fully funded by ACC (for sports-related concussions only), so consultations are free to you. Staffed by medical experts with vast experience in rugby and sports concussion. We aim to see each patient within a week of their injury.

Our clinic offers patients an early accurate diagnosis, advice and follow up, as well as a structured return to sport, based on the national sporting code.

Appointments involve:

  • Thorough concussion history
  • Balance assessment
  • Clinical neurological and cervical spine examination
  • Cognitive function assessment

How much is an appointment?

This service is fully funded by ACC so consultations are free of charge*

*If your injury occurs within 10 days of your appointment.

Do I need a referral?

No referral is needed for activity-based concussions seen within 10 days of sustaining an injury.

Activity-based concussions booked more than 10 days after sustaining an injury will require a referral from a GP, physio or other medical professional in order to book in with our Sport and Exercise Physicians.
