Concussion Management Center
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that occurs when the brain moves rapidly back and forth, or is twisted inside the skull, because of a blow to the head or body. Concussion typically results in a temporary disruption of normal brain function, but in some cases, can result in lasting difficulties.
The focus of Springfield Psychological’ s Concussion Management Center is to provide a data-driven, evidence-based approach to assessment, management, and successful rehabilitation of concussive injuries. We utilize an individualized, active-intervention paradigm that promotes recovery from brain injury and allows for individuals to more efficiently return to their occupational, educational, and athletic endeavors.
As a founding member of the Rothman Institute Concussion Network (RICN), Springfield Psychological’ s Concussion Management Center functions within a multidisciplinary network of providers throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. Through our professional network partnerships, we can effectively treat anyone with a recent or chronic concussion as well as any person with a concussion history who may be experiencing lingering symptoms or lasting deficits.
A concussion evaluation at Springfield Psychological entails a full review of your current injury and an assessment of medical risk factors associated with concussion. Neuro-cognitive testing, balance screening, and vestibular-ocular evaluations are conducted to ensure that individualized treatment recommendations can be provided. When necessary, Springfield Psychological partners with other members of the Rothman Concussion Network to effectively support the treatment needs of every individual. Ultimately, our goal is to return people to their pre-existing level of functioning so they can fully return to their occupational, educational, and athletic interests.
