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.
