Concussion Care

After an accident, you won’t always know if your child has a concussion or brain injury. Sports neurologists are physicians who are trained in the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions.

Evaluating your child for a concussion sooner rather than later is better. Thought, we are happy to evaluate them at any point after getting injured. Learn more about IBJI’s sports neurology services.
