BrainWaves Concussion Care and Head Injury Treatment for San Francisco’s East Bay

Concord / Pleasant Hill, Dublin, Livermore and Lafayette

 

BrainWaves Concussion Care provides comprehensive assessment, treatment and recovery services to head injury patients throughout the East Bay.

BrainWaves will evaluate your symptoms post-injury to determine if a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) has occurred.

Using BrainScope, an FDA cleared device equipped to aid in the objective assessment of concussions and mTBI, along with ImPACT testing and clinical assessment by experienced head injury experts, BrainWaves can also assess the extent of injury.

If our head injury experts conclude that a concussion has occurred, BrainWaves’ can manage your recovery.

The best results and fastest recovery occur when we are able to assess the extent of injury and begin appropriate treatment as soon as possible after the injury.  Concussions that are treated soon after the injury occurs will typically resolve within 4-12 weeks, after which a patient will be referred to his/her primary care physician for routine follow-up.  In the unusual case of significant concussion symptoms continuing beyond 12 weeks after the injury date, a patient may need to be referred to a neurologist for treatment of Post-Concussion Syndrome.

Student Athletes & Return to Play



The regulations developed by CIF’s Sports Medicine Advisory Committee direct a progressive treatment plan to return to play under medical supervision to minimize risks and allow the brain to properly recovery.

Within those guidelines, though, is the need for each patient to have an individualized care plan such as those provided by our physicians for each concussion patient. To return to play requires authorization by a Credentialed ImPACT Consultant like Dr. Mooney, Clinical Director of BrainWaves Concussion Care.

Step by Step Approach to Concussion Recovery

There are many myths surrounding concussions but increased medical science has shown the importance of an early and accurate concussion diagnosis and a customized step-by-step treatment plan for recovery under the supervised care of physician trained in concussion care.

Your BrainWaves physician also may need to provide an accommodation for school or work.
