Pediatric experts at the Concussion Program at Children's Hospital Colorado evaluate and treat children, adolescents and young athletes who have sustained concussions and other types of mild traumatic brain injuries.
The Concussion Program brings together physicians, neuropsychologists, psychologists, physical therapists, athletic trainers and school specialists in a multidisciplinary approach to comprehensive concussion care.
Our multidisciplinary care team makes our Concussion Program an excellent choice for children and adolescents who have had a concussion. We offer a streamlined yet comprehensive approach to concussion that tailors treatment to each individual patient’s needs.
Our multidisciplinary team includes board-certified pediatric experts from emergency medicine, sports medicine, rehabilitation and neuropsychology, a full-time pediatric psychologist, a brain injury education coordinator, athletic trainers, physical therapists, nurses and support staff with special training in concussion. We also have direct access to quickly consult pediatric neurology and neurosurgery as needed.
Our brain injury education coordinator
Our brain injury education coordinator works with students who have experienced concussion or moderate/severe brain injuries, along with their schools and families, to help them reach their education potential. You can contact our brain injury educator at RehabEd@childrenscolorado.org
Each year our concussion team sees thousands of children and teens who have suffered a concussion or other type of mild traumatic brain injury.
Our Concussion Program experts also provide families, patients, coaches and educators with information to help clarify common issues related to concussion. Topics include identifying the initial signs of a concussion and getting children and teens back to school and back to sports and other activities.
