Children’s Minnesota is pleased to announce the opening of the Children’s Minnesota Concussion Clinic, located inside the Children’s Minnesota Specialty Center in Woodbury, Minnesota.
Zander's story shows how the Children’s Minnesota Concussion Clinic provides comprehensive medical evaluation and treatment for children and young adults who have concussions caused by sports, accidents or falls.
During Brain Injury Awareness month (March), we want to explain what brain injuries are and provide tips to parents, coaches and teachers so they know what to do if one happens.
A concussion is diagnosed based on signs and symptoms that can occur immediately after the injury or hours, possibly days, later.

Having more than one physical symptom does not necessarily mean that the concussion is more severe.
Children's Physician Access is available 24/7 with a representative on the line throughout the call to assist with referrals, consultations and admissions and to provide general information.
