Experts in Concussion Care

Mass General Brigham Sports Medicine provides assessment, treatment and rehabilitation services for athletes who experience a concussion during sports or recreational activities. A patient who has had a concussion may experience a variety of symptoms including, but not limited to:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Dizziness
  • Depression
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Changes in attention, concentration and memory

We work with the injured athlete, family, and school through the recovery process.

A Team Approach to Patient-centered Concussion Care

Our multidisciplinary patient care team consists of specialists in neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, clinical psychology, neuropsychology and physical therapy. An initial appointment may include:

  • A physical and neurological examination
  • Balance, visual and/or vestibular testing
  • Cognitive testing to assess memory, processing speed and reaction time
  • Education about concussions
  • A recommendation to schedule a follow-up appointment with another specialist, such as a physical therapist, neuropsychologist or clinical psychologist

Patient health care is timely, individualized and holistic. We assess and monitor the person's physical symptoms, emotional reactions to injury, and cognitive functioning. We provide treatment and rehabilitation services that are tailored to the specific problems and needs of the athlete. Our priority is the safe and effective return to school, extracurricular activities and sports.
