Complex Concussion Clinic

The goal of our comprehensive outpatient program is to provide individualized evaluation and treatment by physical, occupational and speech therapy to maximize recovery for head injury and post-concussive syndrome.

Complex Concussion Symptoms

Dizziness, headache, imbalance, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, fatigue, lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, difficulty with memory, irritability, sadness, sleep disturbances, sensitivity to light and noise and anxiety.

Complex Concussion Treatment

The Concussion Clinic is supported by an transdisciplinary team of clinicians who specialize in treating head injuries and individuals living with a brain injury. The treatment team may include a physical therapist, speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, neuropsychologist and care manager. Our specialized multidisciplinary team approach will address vestibular and balance dysfunction evaluation and treatment, functional vision rehabilitation, assistance with return to school and work and necessary accommodations, cognitive evaluation and rehabilitation and support and education regarding concussion and recovery.
