Injuries & Treatments
In the past few years, it has become increasingly evident that
concussions can cause serious long-term neurological damage if not properly
treated. Athletes in high-impact contact sports are particularly at risk, with
one in 10 suffering a concussion during any sports season.
Your best weapon in managing a concussion is the recognition that one has occurred. Learn the symptoms and get any suspected head injury evaluated by a physician trained in the diagnosis and management of concussions. The highly skilled concussion specialists at the Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute are experts at providing a thorough evaluation and treatment for patients of all ages. These physicians can also provide the return-to-play authorization required for junior and senior high school athletes attending public schools.
The Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute’s Sports Concussion Program includes a multi-disciplinary team of concussion specialists including primary care sports medicine physicians, physical medicine physicians, athletic trainers, neurologists, neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons and physical and neurological rehabilitation specialists focused on helping athletes recover from concussions and return to their sport.
