Concussion Clinic

When you receive a blow or jolt to the head it can cause the brain to move within the skull. This is known as a concussion—a form of traumatic brain injury.  If the injury is serious, it can have lasting neurological effects. This is why it’s important to diagnose and treat a concussion the right way.

At the Neurobehavioral Wellness Center, we specialize in the evaluation of individuals who have experienced a head injury and are still experiencing cognitive and emotional changes 6 - 8 weeks after injury, also known as post-concussive syndrome.


Diagnosis and Treatment

We will look for common concussion symptoms.  Specific symptoms may include:

  • Difficulty with sleep and/or vision

  • Difficulty with balance and/or coordination

  • Difficulty with concentration

  • Headaches

  • Irritability

  • Nausea

A neuropsychological evaluation assesses function such as concentration, memory, and reaction time. This evaluation consists of questions and standardized measures that help us understand how your brain is processing information.

We will also want to know about:

  • Past concussions

  • History of migraines, depression, mood disorders, or anxiety

  • Existing conditions such as learning disabilities or ADHD

  • Other information, such as input from teachers, parents, or other medical professionals is also taken into consideration.

Based on the neuropsychological evaluation for post-concussive syndrome, recommendations may include:

  • 504 Plan

  • Psychotherapy for adjustment to injury

  • Cognitive rehabilitation

  • Imaging studies (for additional information)

  • Physical therapy (for balance problems)

  • Recommendations to a neurologist or other medical specialist

  • Vision rehabilitation
