Concussion Treatment

Contact Us

A concussion is a type of brain injury that commonly occurs when a patient suffers a sudden, violent blow to the head. Once thought to be minor, we now know that when left untreated, concussions can lead to debilitating, long-term effects for a patient. With early treatment and vigilant monitoring, however, these effects can be prevented and minimized.

We provide various concussion treatment options in New Jersey. While concussions are generally associated with athletes, we have assisted patients from all walks of life to recover from their concussion and get back to everyday life.

What Are the Signs of a Concussion?

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Confusion/Fogginess
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Delayed responses to questions
  • Attention issues
  • Temporary loss of consciousness

The signs of a concussion can be subtle and it's critical that any potential victim is evaluated by a specially trained professional. Within our concussion program, we can provide this evaluation, the necessary CT scan or MRI, and even monitor for second impact syndrome (SIS).

Athlete Concussion Screenings

Athletes, even very young players, are particularly susceptible to concussions. Establishing awareness of the warning signs is the best way to ensure early detection. The Matthew J. Morahan III Health Assessment Center for Athletes (Morahan Center) provides education, assessment and evaluation of sports injury and sports-related cardiac and concussion screening. Concussion screenings using the computer-based ImPACT (immediate post-concussion assessment and cognitive testing) assessment tool are available to patients ages 12 to 18. Request an appointment today.
