The SPORT Concussion Clinic is a facility that specializes in the rehabilitation of brain injury and concussions. Patients are evaluated by board certified physicians and neuropsychologists, and their highly qualified staff whose experience in the areas of traumatic brain injury and concussion make rehabilitation amiable and successful. In addition, various forms of assessments are used for diagnosis such as ImPACT (Immediate Post-consuccion And Cognitive Testing), the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS), and the Standardized Assessment of Concussion (SAC).
Following evaluation and assessment, patients will receive treatment which may include; medical care from a physician, ongoing services (e.g. serial assessment, mild head injury education, counseling, cognitive therapy) from a psychologist or neuropsycholopgist, and/or a referral to our extensive network of physical specialist and ancillary medical professionals. Our clinic uses a computerized neuropsycholigical assessment that is currently used by the NFL, NHL, NASCAR, professional boxing and many high schools and colleges.
The use of comperterized neuropsychological assessment enables our doctors to conduct a simple, 20-minute evaluation of an athlete’s neurocognitive status (i.e. memory, processing speed and other related functions) following concussion.
