Concussion Center

Englewood Hospital and Medical Center offers comprehensive care for children and adults suffering from symptoms and effects of concussion and post-concussion syndrome. We also offer the ImPACT Baseline Concussion Test for student athletes.

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that can result from a fall, a bump or blow to the head that can change the way your brain normally functions. Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity.  

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. emergency departments treat an estimated 135,000 sports- and recreation-related TBIs each year, including concussions, among children ages 5 to 18. Athletes who have had a concussion are at increased risk for another concussion, and children and teens are more likely to get a concussion and recover longer than adults.

For a referral to a concussion specialist, call 1-866-980-EHMC.
