A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by a fall, bump, blow or
jolt to the head which can affect memory, judgment, moods, sleep, speech,
vision, balance, coordination and functional ability. Concussions can
occur to any individual despite activity level or age. It is considered
as a mild form of traumatic brain injury in which symptoms can last for
days, weeks or longer and the period of recovery varies among older adults,
teens and young children.
At Gloria Drummond Rehabilitation Institute, we offer a comprehensive interdisciplinary
assessment and individualized management for both Sports and Non-Sports
Related Concussion injuries.

confusion, mood changes, and changes in sleep. With proper assessment
