concussion management

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that alters the way the brain functions. Effects are usually temporary, but can include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, judgment, balance and coordination. Although concussions usually are caused by a blow to the head, they can also occur when the head and upper body are violently shaken. Many people believe that concussions only occur when someone is knocked unconscious. However, in the vast majority of sports concussions, athletes don't get knocked out, but they still may have a concussion.

Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment services for concussion and sports-related concussion. A multidisciplinary team of physicians, neuropsychologists, physical therapists and a registered nurse work together to help patients and their families understand, manage and recover from the symptoms of concussion.
