Our Story

The Adolescent Complex Concussion Clinic (AC3) was created almost 10 years ago when we recognized that a sizable number of teens continued to struggle with post-concussion symptoms sometimes for months without having a dedicated team to support their recovery. Our team , managing complex health issues in an interdisciplinary approach, decided to take on the challenge and the AC3 outpatient program was born. We are located within the GF Strong Rehabilitation Center. Our team provides education, self-management support, and comprehensive care to teenagers living with persistent symptoms of concussion in British Columbia and the Yukon in Canada.
