Once deemed a “bell ringer” or “ding,” a concussion is more than a bump on the head. It’s a traumatic brain injury that can have long-term consequences if it isn’t diagnosed promptly and treated properly.
At the Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey (OINJ), we offer a full range of services for concussion management, including baseline testing taken before an athlete’s exposure to training or competition, which can be compared to the post-injury test to detect a concussion.
In most cases, concussion doesn’t cause a loss consciousness. You may not even know you’ve suffered from a concussion. Our testing services can accurately detect concussion so you can receive the proper treatment to minimize symptoms and the risk of complications. We also focus on prevention to help you avoid a second injury.
No two concussions are the same. OINJ’s talented team of concussion experts will provide you an individualized treatment program so you can fully recover. We will assess your progress and properly advise you about when it’s safe to return to school, work, sports and recreational activities.
