Concussion Clinic

Urgent concussion care to take the proper steps for speedy recovery

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury from a blow to the head or body. A concussion requires timely and thorough diagnosis and treatment. Labeled as mild does not mean the injury is not serious. A loss of consciousness is not required for a concussion to occur. An injury concerning for concussion, accident or sports related, should prompt timely evaluation by a healthcare professional to guide treatment and expedite recovery. In the meantime, avoid activities that put you at risk for another brain injury such as playing contact sports. Avoid taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, or naproxen for the first 48 hours after the injury.
