Concussions are serious and require immediate attention and specialized care. If you believe you or a loved one have suffered from a life-threatening head injury, don’t wait — call 911.
When you come to TOSH’S Concussion Clinic, you’ll receive care that’s designed to treat athletes who’ve suffered a sport-related concussion. Our setting is state-of-the-art and easy to access.
Recovering from a traumatic brain injury isn’t easy. We’ll help you understand your options for treatment. Our brain injury specialists offer multidisciplinary care and custom treatment plans designed to help speed up your healing process.
Utah state law requires that any athlete suspected of a concussion
must be removed from the event and cannot return to play until cleared
by a qualified healthcare provider.
Establishing a baseline of your congnitive function before starting a
sport season makes it much faster and easier for a healthcare provider
to accurately diagnose your level of injury. We use a computerized
neurocognitive assessment tool called ImPACT testing along with some other tests to collect a
complete picture of your mental state. Once this data is collected, it can be used as a comparrison following a brain injury to determine the extent of the damage.
Testing takes about 30 minutes for each athlete. We offer group discounts for whole teams.
