Athletes and Concussion
Contact or collision sports, such as football, soccer, wrestling, ice hockey, lacrosse, and rugby, have the highest incidence of concussion. Athletes who suffer a concussion are three to five times more likely to suffer a second concussion in the same season. Repeat injuries can take longer to recover from and are likely to be more severe. Thus, proper concussion management is critical, especially in determining when to return an athlete to play. Our therapists follow the recommendations and guidelines from the latest Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport.
Collisions, Accidents and Falls
Patients may have experienced a concussion following a car, motorcycle, bicycle, or ATV crash, no matter the vehicle's speed. Household accidents include slips, trips, and falls. Despite the cause, the signs and symptoms of a concussion should be watched for and treatment sought if the symptoms do not resolve.

Work Place Injuries
Head injuries sustained in the workplace are often the result of slip and fall accidents, falling objects, motor vehicle accidents, and defective and dangerous equipment. A worker who has suffered a concussion may experience no symptoms initially or may have experienced a loss of consciousness. The need for a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach helps to guide the patients’ return to work safely.
