Our concussion experts and sports medicine doctors provide diagnosis and treatment for a range of concussion-related symptoms in people of all ages.
Concussion is one of the most common sports injuries, with about 2 million sports-related concussions reported each year. While more and more people are becoming aware of the frequency and dangers of concussion, the advice about what to do for concussion can be confusing. That is why it is important to seek expert medical treatment as soon as possible.
In diagnosing and evaluating concussion, experience matters. As of now there is no precise diagnostic exam for concussion. Our concussion experts will evaluate the severity of your concussion by reviewing your medical history and doing a thorough physical exam of your symptoms, balance and physical condition.
The best treatment for concussion is resting your brain so it can heal. This means that your concussion management plan may include:
The decision to return to normal activity is one of the most difficult aspects of concussion management. Returning to activity too early or getting a second concussion before your brain has healed can have serious consequences.
Your doctor will work with you to decide when you should return to your normal activities. Although you may be able to go back to work or school fairly quickly, it may take much longer for you to be able to return to physical activity.
