Concussion Management Q & A
Metro Orthopedic Sports & Therapy primarily evaluates and treats orthopedic injuries but is introducing a new concussion clinic run by world-renowned concussion researcher and retired Army Colonel, Dr. Michael Lewis, MD. The concussion clinic will evaluate and treat patients who sustain a head injury during any activity. From sports injuries, to falls, to old injuries that have recently produced symptoms, we wish to help all those who struggle with head injuries.
Provide quality concussion care that is individualized to each patient
Our collective team of Physicians, Athletic Trainers, and Physical Therapists are dedicated to making sure that patients are given a unique plan once diagnosed with a concussion. Each concussion is different, and the way a person responds to treatment is different. Our focus is to identify the system(s) that aren’t functioning correctly, and have each patient return to full activity as quickly and safely as possible.
