If you have recently suffered a sports related concussion you may be better suited to our Sports Concussion Clinic.

How does it work?

  • Introduction
    First, you will be assigned a team member who will meet with you to understand your needs, and what assessments are required to better understand your concussion.
  • Assessments and review
    You will then go through these assessments while also having your case reviewed by our team.
  • Bespoke rehab plan
    Based on the results of the assessments, and the recommendations of our team, a rehab plan will be developed specific to your circumstances.
  • Ongoing support
    Your designated team member will then work with you during your rehabilitation, check you are progressing as we expect and ensure you get further support from our team if/when required.

What is a multidisciplinary team?

Concussions can be complex and require specialised care, which is why we have brought together a multidisciplinary team of medical and health experts that include, but not limited to:

  • Sport and Exercise Physicians
  • Neurologists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Clinical Exercise Physiologists
  • Neuropsychologists

How do I get referred to your clinic?

You need a Concussion Services referral form (found here) to be completed by your GP (this cannot be completed by a physio) and sent to ACC assistedrecovery@acc.co.nz so that they can allocate a provider for you.

You can ask to be referred to us, but ACC makes their own decision about where a patient is allocated. Unfortunately, we cannot influence that.

Treatment Costs

With an ACC approved referral, services provided under the ACC Concussion Service are fully funded.
