At Children's Minnesota, we don't brush off concussions — we know they can disrupt brain and other physical functions (vision, vestibular and hearing). Our pediatric concussion program provides comprehensive medical evaluation and treatment for children and young adults who have concussions caused by sports, falls or accidents. Whether the symptoms are mild or severe, we have the skill and experience to care for them all.
At Children’s Minnesota, we take health care and concussions seriously. Concussions are the most common type of traumatic brain injuries. A concussion is usually caused by a blow to the head or body that results in a disruption or loss of normal brain function and potentially a loss of consciousness. A concussion is diagnosed based on symptoms that can occur immediately after the injury or are recognized hours, possibly days, later.
