When it comes to concussions, prompt treatment makes the difference between successful recovery and lifelong complications. But knowing what head injury symptoms to look for, as well as which treatment options are most appropriate, isn’t as easy as managing other health conditions.
Concussion management at Bethel Park Health + Wellness Pavilion starts with a thorough evaluation of your symptoms or injuries. Then, your concussion treatment team develops a care plan that manages head injury symptoms, avoids potential complications, and helps you prevent reinjury.
Our concussion specialists offer comprehensive management of mild head injuries. If you or someone you know suffers from a head injury, we provide:
- Thorough diagnostic testing: Concussions, especially mild concussions, may not cause noticeable symptoms. Sometimes, symptoms appear days after the initial injury. Our physicians take the time to perform a detailed neurological examination, including diagnostic imaging studies if necessary. We leave nothing to chance when it comes to head injuries.
- Specialist referrals: If your concussion requires more intensive medical management, Bethel Park Health + Wellness Pavilion acts as your portal to other specialists within Allegheny Health Network.
- Treatment for complications: Even mild concussions may cause complications ranging from headaches to vertigo to cognitive difficulties. If your concussion causes long-lasting side effects, we develop a personalized plan to help you live as normally as possible while your brain heals.
- Preventive care: Some people, such as student athletes, are at higher risk for concussions. We help your family develop a concussion protection plan to avoid head injuries.
