The Sports Concussion Clinic provides assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation services for student athletes who experience a concussion during athletic participation or in daily life. A patient who has had a concussion may suffer from symptoms including, but not limited to: headache, nausea, sensitivity to light or noise, dizziness, depression, sleep disturbances, and changes in attention, concentration and/or memory. We work with the student, family, and school through the recovery process. Our first priority for children and adolescents is the safe, swift, effective, and durable return to school. The second priority is a full and successful return to extracurricular activities – including sports.
Our multidisciplinary patient care team consists of specialists in sports medicine, neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, sport psychology, neuropsychology, and physical therapy. Patients receive a medical evaluation first, followed by referrals to other specialists on the team. Patient health care is timely, individualized, and holistic. We assess and monitor the person’s physical symptoms, emotional reactions to injury, and cognitive functioning. We provide treatment and rehabilitation services that are tailored to the specific problems and needs of the student athlete.
Patients’ experiences are tailored to their specific needs and circumstances. Everyone receives a detailed, personalized evaluation by a specialist trained in concussion management. Patients will also leave with customized plans to get them back to school, sports, and other recreational activities as safely and effectively as possible. Your initial appointment may also include:
