A concussion is one of the most common injuries sustained by children and teens. It can happen with a blow to the head or body and can occur without loss of consciousness. Families may have difficulty understanding the effects of a concussion as it may take days or even weeks for the effects to emerge.
The rehabilitation team at Weisman Children’s have developed an extensive Concussion Management Program under the guidance of our Medical Director, Dr. Connie Domingo. She is dual board certified in pediatrics and physical medicine and rehabilitation. Depending on your child’s needs, Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists will work together to get patients back to their pre-injured selves.
WCRH offers a free concussion support group every 3rd Monday of the Month for 11-19 year olds and their families.
