Concussion Assessment

As part of the concussion assessment I will take a full medical and concussion history, examine the patient’s neurological and vestibular system, use tools such as SCAT 5 and formulate a graduated return to play schedule tailored for the individual.

Concussion Subtype diagnosis

1) Cervical (neck pain)

2) Vestibular (balance problems)

3) Occular (eye problems)

4) Cognitive/Fatigue

5) Migraine

6) Mood/Anxiety

Each subtype has its own unique picture, treatment and return to learn/work/play advice. 

Return to Play

Perhaps the most difficult aspect of care for complicated or repeat concussions is deciding the "down time" before restarting contact and tailoring a return to play schedule that fits with the individual. I have experience at guiding many schools through to professional players through a return to play schedule and back to full health. As an Emergency Medicine Consultant in the local Trauma Centre i also have a wealth of experience of assessing a large variety of head injuries from not just sport but RTCs and personal injury.
