The Centers for Disease Control estimates that up to 3.8 million concussions occur every year. Diagnosis and treatments are vital to making a full recovery.

Michael Pendleton from the Southwest Brain Performance Center explains the dangers of concussions, “If you get more than one concussion or even just one concussion, you can start having changes in your brain that can lead to problems down the line.”

Having an injury diagnosed correctly is key and then the correct treatment can be prescribed.
