Expert concussion care to treat the whole individual

The Concussion Program at Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare is dedicated to empowering individuals whose quality of life has been negatively impacted by a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Led by physicians specializing in brain injury medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation, our multidisciplinary teams accurately diagnose these conditions to treat the whole individual with a concussion or mild TBI, including physical, neurological, and mental health. Our goal is to get you back to the life you enjoyed prior to your injury, as safely and soon as possible.

We work with patients who have experienced concussion or mild TBI due to sports injuries, car accidents, work or home injuries, and much more.

How Do I Know If I've Had a Concussion?

Following a bump or jolt to the head or body, any of the following symptoms may be sign of a concussion or traumatic brain injury:

  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Fatigue
  • Short-term memory challenges

If you experience these symptoms following such an injury, we recommend getting screened by a specialist as soon as possible. Our board-certified doctors are equipped to diagnose, treat, and help you manage the individual symptoms of your condition.

How It Works

Our program relies on evidence-based, concussion-specific diagnostic criteria and rehabilitation techniques to maximize the recovery of patients with concussion or mild TBI. Because of the unique nature of each brain injury, no two patients or courses of treatment are the same.

Throughout your recovery, you’ll be supported by a comprehensive clinical team who will provide not only a recovery plan, but a timeline for when you may safely return to the activities you enjoy, such as sports, school, or work.

Your First Visit

At your first visit, you will be seen by a physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). This doctor will oversee your care while you are a patient at Casa Colina.

All new patients undergo “ImPACT” testing to assess brain function. Short for “Immediate
Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing,” ImPACT is an FDA-cleared medical tool used by healthcare providers and sports organizations to diagnose and manage concussions before the return to activities.

Results of your ImPACT assessment will be interpreted by your care team, including PM&R
doctors and neuropsychologists, who will then make appropriate referrals to therapies,
neuropsychological services, neuro-optometry, or other treatment modalities.

Expert Care Led by Trained Professionals

The Concussion Program team consists of a broad range of clinical experts, many of whom possess specialty training in brain injury medicine, neurology, and more. Your care team collaborates at biweekly meetings to discuss your progress, adjust your care plan as needed, and keep your recovery on track.

Concussion Program clinical experts include:

  • Doctors specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation
  • Doctors specializing in brain injury medicine
  • Neuropsychologists
  • Doctors of optometry who focus on neuro-optometric care
  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists, including Neurologic Clinical Specialists (NCS)
