Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries that occur after an impact to your head. Treated properly, they are often temporary. Our team of Concussion Care experts can provide you with all the treatment that’s essential for long-lasting benefit.
Concussion Care for Everyone
Athletes are susceptible to concussions especially if they participate in a contact sport, such as football or soccer. Athletes aren’t the only ones who get concussions. Young children at play are especially vulnerable. Elderly are susceptible because of falls and motor vehicle accidents can impact anyone who experiences head trauma or whiplash.
That’s why our concussion care team not only provides expert care for athletes but also expertly treats anyone who’s suffered any kind of head trauma. We’re here to help everyone heal.
