Concussion Management

Concussions are a topic of great concern these days, and for good reason. If left untreated or treated incorrectly, these head injuries can cause difficulties that will extend far beyond the playing fields.

Not every head injury leads to a concussion, however, and sometimes it is difficult to know the difference between a minor bump on the head and one that is potentially far more serious. Carilion Clinic's Sports Medicine team takes proactive steps to educate athletes and parents so together we can decrease the risk of, and properly treat, concussions.
