Personalized treatment can help speed up your recovery from a concussion

Traumatic brain injuries such as concussions can happen when you forcefully hit your head or body. This can happen during sporting events such as football or soccer games, but concussions can also happen as the result of a fall or a car accident.

Concussions can be treated in a variety of ways. When you visit one of our concussion specialists within the Novant Health Concussion Care Network, your provider will help you determine the best treatment plan for your unique situation.

Your care could include active recovery techniques, which encourage you to slowly ramp up your activity level under the guidance of your provider. Our team also can offer you advanced brain function (neurocognitive) testing, balance (vestibular) rehabilitation and vision (oculomotor) training, if your provider recommends them.

The goal of our care is to get you back to your pre-injury state as quickly as possible. You want to get back to the activities that matter to you. We want to help you get there.
