More Concussion Info From the Dr. Carrick Interview

Please describe the diagnostic procedures and treatment that you offer those suffering from a concussion and is there a different approach to an acute concussion vs. chronic concussive symptoms or post concussion syndrome?
We marry standard testing to advanced functional testing. We establish baselines of brain function and compare that to normals and use the baseline as a measurement of change. We will know immediately if our patients are improving, getting worse or having no change. We can then change our approaches to do the best for the brain injured patient. Our therapies are very robust. For instance, we don’t stop our treatments in the Brain Center, we put our hockey players on the ice, football players on the field, baseball players on the diamond, martial artists on the matt and have practical back to sport training that involves the sport specifically as well as other cross training necessary to improve performance.
