Sports Concussion Services
Comprehensive Concussion Care
At ICCD, we believe concussion is a treatable injury. Our team of experts is well-equipped to help your child get back to school, sports, and the activities they enjoy as quickly and safely as possible.
The ICCD Concussion Clinic incorporates a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment of head injury, no matter what the mechanism of injury. Our team of specialists include neuropsychologists, physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and clinical psychologists working together to provide individualized, integrated care to students and athletes of all ages.
What Sets Us Apart
The ICCD Concussion Clinic is led by Dr. Jill Henley, a Clinical Sports Neuropsychologist who specializes in the treatment of sport-related concussions. Dr. Henley completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sports Concussion Program where she treated concussions and learned the nuances of the ImPACT test directly from the professionals who developed it. Dr. Henley has worked with athletes across the developmental lifespan, ranging from young athletes to the pros (Steelers and Penguins). She is excited to return to her home state and bring her personalized, dynamic, evidence-based approach to athletes in her own community.
In addition, our sports psychology department knows that a one-size-fits-all approach does not work. This is extremely salient with concussion work as we now know there are multiple subtypes of concussion, each responding to a different type of intervention and return-to-play protocol. We use a multifaceted evaluation, including a thorough clinical interview, neurocognitive testing, and a vestibular/ocular motor screening to create the most efficient and targeted treatment plan for our patients. We are sensitive to the unique needs and recovery goals of every patient, as well as the pressures that student-athletes and their families face during recovery. We will remain involved through each stage of recovery, which makes our services unique in the field.
When it comes to concussions, well-managed, comprehensive care is the best way to prevent future complications. We understand the impact of potential consequences that arise from a poorly managed head injury and the risks of returning to sport too soon or remaining out of play too long. We also understands that our patients are eager to return to normalcy. Our goal is to get our patients back to complete recovery so they can return to school, sports, and all of life’s excitement.
We are passionate about bringing our knowledge to athletes who want an accurate diagnosis from a specialist who can read the data, the patient, and craft an immediate action plan. Our team is ready to help you on your path to recovery.
