To help ensure the health and safety of individuals with suspected concussions, our practice developed a concussion program to assist civilians, athletes, coaches, and parents. This specialty clinic provides comprehensive diagnostic and rehabilitation services, in addition to important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.
Our team’s approach focuses on the individual and oversight of an active recovery process, recognizing that every patient is unique and requires individualized treatment plans. Concussion management plans include parallel return to activity, work, and sport progressions with active provider management throughout the duration of the recovery process.
Every patient undergoes comprehensive physical and cognitive exams including various tests of ocular motor dysfunction, balance, coordination, and cognition. This allows our providers to accurately diagnose concussions using standardized, evidence-based protocols, and provide recommendations and/or accommodations for concussed patients to facilitate their recovery while minimizing the impact of their injury on academic/work and sports performance.
The goal of our concussion program is to safely return individuals to their pre-injury level of functioning whether that’s on the field, at their job, or in the classroom.
