Peterborough roller derby skaters and refs recently went through free baseline pre-concussion testing through the Posture Clinic, 346 Charlotte Street in Peterborough. Skaters went through a variety of cognitive and balance testing to provide a baseline against which the effect of injuries can be measured.
Skaters will be re-tested, for free, if they are thought to have sustained a concussion. The only cost any player would incur would be in situations in which the player chose to obtain rehabilitation treatments from Dr. Horseman (or any other private provider). The Posture Clinic offers a number of innovative neurological and chiropractic therapies that can help athletes return to game play more quickly, or recover from injury.
