Concussion Management

strip

A concussion is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) that can happen to anyone at any time. It is caused by blows to the head or jolts and is a serious injury. There has been much attention on the subject but very little in the way of expert, coordinated care. That’s why the physicians at Marque Medical have developed HeadStrong, a community-based concussion evaluation and treatment program that offers unprecedented care and specialist coordination. The program has a focus on timely, safe, and full recoveries guided by industry-leading research.

WHY HEADSTRONG?

Our mission is to increase access to physicians and resources that are trained in the evaluation and management of concussions. We are experts in the field and the first stop to a full, speedy recovery. HeadStrong provides patients immediate access to innovative medical technology and resources right in your neighborhood. It is an extension of the Marque brand to provide wellness to the community that we serve.

What is a Concussion?

A DEVOTION TO PROVIDING EXPERT CARE

We have a dedicated team that helps coordinate the recovery progression and manages referrals to appropriate specialists when continued post-concussion symptoms exist. HeadStrong has an established network of highly regarded resources, ensuring that our patients are given the best care possible throughout the treatment process.

Baseline and Post Injury Testing

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A MARQUE VISIT

When you visit Marque HeadStrong, you will be given a systematic and thorough evaluation based on industry-leading guidelines and research. Depending on the severity of the TBI, the Marque physician will establish a course of treatment that is appropriate and necessary for a full recovery. If necessary, the physician will refer and coordinate care with a specialist in the area. Patients are given information at each visit to take home and review, and we will share and communicate to interested parties any information that is critical to the recovery process.

Treatment

GET BACK TO YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE

"Put me back in the game coach!" The proper treatment of a TBI can be a complicated process. HeadStrong works with individuals, parents, coaches, athletic trainers, and organizations to ensure full recovery prior to re-entering participation in the classroom, playing field, or work environment. We follow established Return-to-Learn (RTL) and Return-to-Play (RTP) protocols with specific milestones and guidelines so that the patient can get back to doing the things they love, safely.
