CONCUSSION TREATMENT NEWPORT BEACH CA

Expert Concussion Treatment in Newport Beach, CA & Nearby Communities

Concussion Treatment Newport Beach CAConcussion treatment may be necessary after a blow to the head, such as those sometimes experienced by athletes in contact sports like football and basketball. If you believe your child has sustained a concussion, turn to Marque Urgent Care in Newport Beach, California. Our physician-led network of immediate care centers spearheads a first-of-its-kind program known as HeadStrong. This community-based initiative focuses on educating local sports programs on concussion prevention, and provides a coordinated method of concussion treatment for athletes who need prompt medical attention.

Marque Urgent Care’s HeadStrong program streamlines all aspects of concussion care, including:

  • Contact: A family member of an injured athlete can quickly contact us through our concussion hotline. Plus, unlike primary care offices that typically close at 5 p.m. sharp, Marque Urgent Care is open on weeknights and weekends when most sporting events take place.

 

  • Evaluation: The patient will quickly be evaluated by one of our experienced HeadStrong physicians, who will test cognitive function with the SCAT3 concussion assessment tool – a standardized and trusted method of evaluating athletes following a head injury.

 

  • Concussion treatment and management: Unfortunately, there is no cure for a concussion. Treatment usually involves plenty of rest – both mental and physical – and taking medication to relieve symptoms like headaches. A HeadStrong physician will ensure the patient’s family is fully informed on the specifics of his/her condition, and will determine an appropriate schedule of follow-up care. Our physicians can also sign off on necessary health documents for the patient to return to the playing field when the time is right. Should concussion symptoms linger, we will refer the patient to a neurological specialist we know and trust while monitoring his/her progress.

To learn more about our coordinated approach to concussion treatment and our HeadStrong program, contact Marque Urgent Care in Newport Beach, CA, today.
