Melissa's Search for Concussion Headache Relief

When Melissa, a high school soccer player, experienced symptoms such as sharp neck pain, dizziness, and headaches after taking a hit during a game, her family was eager to have her evaluated.

She went to a local neurologist and started taking medications for headaches, but saw little improvement. Her headaches were so bad that she lost focus in school and her grades suffered. Frustrated with a lack of progress, Melissa's mom looked online for other options. She found and called the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program to schedule an appointment. 

Dr. Mickey Collins and his team met with Melissa and her family for a comprehensive clinical evaluation. They developed an individualized concussion treatment plan that involved vestibular and exertion therapy​ and accommodations in school.

One month after her initial appointment with Dr. Collins, Melissa was headache-free and could play soccer again.
