Post-Concussive Institute

The Post-Concussive Institute is a comprehensive treatment program designed for individuals experiencing physical, cognitive, and/or emotional difficulties after sustaining a head trauma.

Upon referral to our Post-Concussive Institute, an appointment is set up with a Marianjoy Medical Group physiatrist and an individualized treatment plan is then developed. An interdisciplinary team provides the necessary support and treatment to help the patient successfully return to school and/or work. 

Marianjoy also offers pre- and post-injury neurocognitive screenings such as ImPACT Testing.

The most common causes of injury resulting in brain trauma/concussion include:
