What To Expect

What To Expect

Most patients who have suffered a concussion can expect at least three visits in our clinic. While some patients may be able to progress quicker than others, we find this is the average amount of appointments required to return to full activity safely.

First, Dr. Contardo will complete the initial clinical intake. At this appointment a comprehensive history will be gathered and initial recommendations will be offered regarding time off from school, work, or athletics, if necessary.

A follow-up appointment with Dr. Trigger will be completed shortly thereafter for a comprehensive medical examination and an initiation of a return-to-play paradigm.

After completing the return-to-play program, a follow-up visit for cognitive examination and final medical clearance is the last step. Our clinical process was developed in line with the most recent medical guidelines for concussion management and allows each person close and individualized attention and gives our doctors an opportunity to be 100% sure they are ready to return to action.
