Rochester Regional Health Concussion Program

Our Unique Approach

femalewithheadacheConcussions can happen to anyone, anywhere — on the road, on the job, at home or on the athletic field.

A concussion, no matter where it happens or who you are, is still a concussion. When you think you have a concussion, we can help.

As part of Rochester Regional Health’s Neuroscience Institute, the Concussion Program includes experts in neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology, orthopaedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, vestibular (balance) therapy and imaging.

Our experts customize a care plan to your needs so you can recover as completely, quickly and safely as possible.
