Concussion Care

After seeking medical care for a concussion, children with lasting symptoms may benefit from a post-concussion evaluation and treatment plan.

Kids Can Do Children’s Therapy Center offers post-concussion evaluations from specially trained physical therapists.  

The Process

Evaluations last approximately one hour and may be covered by insurance

The therapist will discuss with you how the injury occurred and the symptoms and behaviors your child may be experiencing.

Your child will be tested to assess pain, range of motion, balance, motor skills, coordination, cognitive function, and visual ability.  

Along with the initial evaluation, as part of the Concussion Care program, the therapist will provide families support and information about:

  • What to expect as your child recovers from a concussion

  • What to monitor for during the concussion healing process

  • How to gradually and safely return to normal activities

  • What are signs that further evaluation and treatment may be needed

  • Any additional concerns you may have and recommend additional educational resources
