Clinic Overview

 

 

The Carolina Sports Concussion Clinic offers comprehensive sports concussion management.  Established in August 2008, our goal is to raise awareness and educate the community on concussion prevention and recognition and to be a leader in concussion management in Wake County and throughout all of North Carolina.

To date, our providers have evaluated and managed over 3,000 sports-related concussions.  Referrals have come from Wake & Durham County Middle & High Schools, Cardinal Gibbons and other area private schools, Meredith College, St. Augustine’s University, and Shaw University.  In addition to academic institutions, we have also seen athletes from the North Raleigh Bulldogs, RYHA, Triangle Volleyball Club and numerous other youth sports organizations.

Concussions aren’t limited to collision sports.  We’ve seen athletes sustain concussions participating in basketball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, hockey, football, cheerleading, gymnastics, volleyball, wrestling… even skiing and snowboarding.

In addition to a thorough medical evaluation, symptom scoring, balance testing, and vestibular screening, we use ImPACT concussion management software as part of our management process.  ImPACT allows our providers to use objective data to help guide our patients through the recovery process.  We have helped to administer nearly 5,000 baseline tests and have been active participants in the interpretation of over 1,000 post-injury tests.
