Only 10-20% of concussions resolve on their own. That’s not a chance we’re willing to take with our patients, and you certainly shouldn’t be willing to take with yourself or someone you love.
A concussion (also called a mild traumatic brain injury or mTBI) is a disturbance in brain function caused by a direct or indirect blow to the head. Falls, auto accidents, sports and other daily activities can cause injuries that lead to a concussion. Ignore the signs, and recovery can take up to five years.
But here’s the good news: CORA’s Concussion Management Program is an evidence-based treatment plan, effective for reducing post-concussion symptoms in both adults and children. And the really good news is we can see you quickly–in 24 to 48 hours.
