Concussion

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that can be caused trauma to the head.  Falls, sports injuries or motor vehicle accidents are common causes. A concussion cannot be seen visibly or on imaging studies.  Concussions are rarely life-threatening, but can lead to symptoms that affect everyday life. 

During your comprehensive evaluation, we will provide a neurological examination with recommendations for additional testing (when indicated), as well as medication treatment.  Our team follows concussion protocols that include school accommodations and appropriate guidance for return to play.
