The American Academy of Neurology defines concussion as a “trauma- induced alteration in mental status that may or may not involve a loss of consciousness”. Difficulties exist in truly judging the full extent of the concussion for many reasons, but most concussions do resolve in 7-10 days with rest. When symptoms do not resolve within 30 days, post concussion syndrome is usually diagnosed, and in most cases a specialty Concussion clinic like NDBC is needed to properly evaluate and design an approprpriate treatment plan.
At NDBC we take a multidisciplinary approach towards concussion treatment and management. We have a TEAM of Physicians, Audiologists, and Physical Therapists all specifically trained in the field of treating brain injuries and concussions. You may see one, or all of the our specialists based on your initial evaluation with our physician.
