It’s important to seek immediate evaluation and treatment for a concussion. Complications from a concussion can include problems like epilepsy, post-concussion syndrome, post-traumatic headaches, post-traumatic vertigo, and second impact syndrome.
At CentraState, our concussion experts:
- Use evidenced-based therapies to assess, manage, and rehabilitate concussions in people of all ages
- Conduct baseline and post-injury neurocognitive concussion testing using the ImPACTTM tool, CNS VitalSignsTM, and other neurological tests
- Develop concussion rehabilitation programs that are individually tailored for people of all ages to facilitate a safe return to activities
- Develop concussion management treatments and return-to-play guidelines
Proper management is key to safely return to sports, school, work and other activities. Rest or quiet brain activity is critical to allow the brain to recover. This includes refraining from sports, vigorous activities, and even watching TV, playing video games, doing schoolwork, or using a computer.
