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 within 3 weeks with guided return to work or play. A specialty Concussion Clinic like NDBC is needed to properly evaluate the extent of the concussion and to implement a plan to work toward full symptom resolution.
At NDBC we take a multidisciplinary approach towards concussion treatment and management. We have a TEAM of Physicians, Audiologists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Neuro Psychologists, Neuro Radiologists, all specifically trained in the field of treating brain injuries and concussions. You may see one, or all of the specialists based on your initial evaluation with our physician.
NDBC prides itself on attending the latest courses and reading the latest research in the area of concussion management. As the research is evolving, it is important to work with a clinic that maintains best practices.
