More often than not, symptoms of concussions vary widely. But with advanced diagnostic exams like ImPACT offered at the Concussion Clinic, doctors are able to determine the severity of brain trauma and make decisions about further therapies and treatments.

Experts at the Concussion Clinic have the experience necessary to diagnose and manage concussions, as well as a variety of neurological disorders and physical conditions. Our experts include:

  • Physicians, including board-certified specialists in rehabilitation, neurology and sports medicine as well as neuropsychologists
  • Physical therapists with advanced degrees in neurological and vestibular conditions
  • Occupational therapists with advanced training in cognitive rehabilitation
  • Athletic trainers

Whether the concussion is sports-related or not, our specialists use precise clinical tests to design a comprehensive and personal treatment plan for each patient. Our services include:

  • Vestibular therapy to improve balance
  • Identification and treatment of neurologic and neck dysfunction
  • Pain management
  • Oculomotor dysfunction assessment to identify issues with focus or tracking
  • Cognitive assessment and rehabilitation to treat problems with concentrating, multitasking, memory, speech, and organization

  • Return-to-learn/school rehabilitation and skill recovery, including collaboration with school for support and accommodation
  • Return-to-work rehabilitation and skill recovery
