Special Programs

Our team members have a variety of expertise and deliver specialized programs such as: psychedelic and medical cannabis assessments for neurological conditions, baseline concussion testing, medical clearance for professional combat sports athletes, headache & concussion education sessions and botox treatment for headache.

The field of psychedelic medicine (ketamine, psilocybin and MDMA-assisted therapy amongst other treatments) is evolving quickly, and we understand the importance of providing patients with the most up to date information. Psychedelic Neurology is an emerging field within psychedelic medicine and is a focus of clinical development at NCT led by Dr. Lewis.

Dr. Lewis and his team are well-versed in psychedelic neuroscience, research and current treatments and have developed approaches from a neurologic perspective to offer education, guidance and recommendations for psychedelic-assisted treatments to patients with underlying neurologic disorders.

Research within NCT is planned to explore the use of psychedelics in neurologic conditions such as concussion, headache and more.

NCT specializes in providing assessments for medical cannabis for neurologic disorders.

Our medical cannabis program provides an initial comprehensive virtual education session so there is a foundational understanding of the endocannabinoid system and how cannabis can potentially be useful for various neurologic conditions. This helps our patients and their families develop a strong rationale for choosing medical cannabis and empowering patients all involved to make informed decisions about their care.

By combining the most up-to-date medical literature and over 5 years of clinical experience with hundreds of patients, our medical team provides individualized protocols to help treat conditions such as: epilepsy, headache, sleep, autism and more.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of people suffer from concussion in Canada. These concussions can occur in the context of sports, motor vehicle accidents and many other situations.

Our team of occupational therapists have developed a comprehensive and robust baseline concussion testing program to optimize care for our patients. Using the results of baseline concussion testing, our therapists are able to return patients back to sports and functional day-to-day activities in an effective and safe manner assuring performance matches pre-injury baselines.

NCT provides professional and amateur combat sport athletes, such as boxers and MMA fighters, with medical assessments to officially clear them for participation in sport as mandated by the Province of Ontario.

We complete first time applicants, license renewal forms and assessments of abnormal head imaging scans.

The goal is to provide athletes with a “one-stop-shop” to have all testing requirements ordered in one location. In combination with our concussion team, athletes can also complete baseline concussion testing to ensure optimal health before and after fights.

Here at NCT, we believe that patients should feel empowered regarding their health. Many questions arise about different treatments and diagnoses that patients are given. Therefore, we have developed a variety of virtual group education sessions that are run by our medical team and allied health experts. The education sessions allow for patients to ask questions and speak to our team outside of their appointment from the comfort of their home. If you wish to book into one of our education sessions, please contact our admin staff for more details.

Botox injection is a focused treatment modality for chronic headache and migraines.

Botox works by blocking certain chemicals made by the body that are involved in sending pain signals to the brain during a headache or migraine attack.

Tiny amounts of Botox are injected into different areas of the head and neck that are involved in the development of migraines. The treatment itself takes less than 30 minutes and is done for patients once every 3 months. Patients can return home as soon as treatment is done.

You need at least 3 treatments to fully assess the effectiveness of Botox in treating your migraines or headaches. Most insurance companies cover the cost of Botox treatment for chronic migraines.

We provide this specialized service at NCT in addition to comprehensive headache management.

Ask your healthcare provider to complete a referral form to our clinic. We will assess and diagnose your headaches and discuss all potential treatment options with you.
