Concussion doctors and specialists at the Institute are highly skilled in providing fast, accurate assessments of head injuries using physical and cognitive examinations. They will first prescribe cognitive rest to allow the brain time to heal. As they monitor patients’ cognitive skills, they determine when it is safe to return to school, work and sports activities.
The Concussion Specialist team at Memorial Hermann | Rockets Sports Medicine Institute also works with affiliated concussion specialists around greater Houston in areas such as Katy, Northwest Houston, Southeast Houston, Sugar Land and Northeast Houston.
