In the past few years, it has become increasingly evident that concussions can cause serious long-term neurological damage if not treated properly. Athletes in high-impact contact sports are particularly at risk, with one in 10 suffering a concussion during any sports season.

Your best weapon in managing a concussion is the recognition that one has occurred. Learn the symptoms and get any suspected head injury evaluated by a physician trained in the diagnosis and management of concussions. The highly skilled concussion specialists at the Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute are experts at providing a thorough evaluation and treatment for patients of all ages. These physicians can also provide the return-to-play authorization required for junior and senior high school athletes attending public schools.

Our Sports Concussion Program Includes:

  • Concussion awareness training for Houston area physicians, athletes, coaches, athletic trainers, parents, and school nurses
  • Saturday clinics around the city to assess sports injuries
  • On-field concussion evaluation tools
  • Pre and post-concussion neurocognitive testing, in both paper/pencil and computerized formats, facilitated by trained specialists
  • Direct access to medical experts for treatment of concussions and head injuries, and personalized recommendations on return-to-play guidelines and academic and/or work modifications
  • Medication management, when necessary, to help with persistent concussive symptoms
  • Extensive experience with pediatric patients as young as 6 years of age
  • Strength and conditioning specialists who can guide athletes in neck strengthening exercises which may reduce concussion risk
  • Ongoing research and clinical trials to discover answers to real-world problems experienced by athletes of all skill levels
