Also known as: Mild traumatic brain injury

A concussion is a brain injury that is caused by a sudden blow to the head or to the body. The blow shakes the brain inside the skull, which temporarily prevents the brain from working normally.

The Providence Concussion Management Program teaches patients, physicians and community members how to manage concussions in order to minimize long-term effects. Our physicians specialize in treating sports-related concussions, as well mild traumatic brain injuries caused by accidents or falls. They use the latest treatments and refer patients for rehabilitation services when needed.
