Using research to improve pediatric concussion care

With UT Southwestern, we’re involved in research on how to improve concussion care and help kids recover faster. Innovation is always at the forefront of our program. This means your child will receive the safest, most advanced treatments available.

We also work with organizations and community programs throughout the region to provide concussion education. This helps families across our region better understand concussions and when to get care for their child.

Helping kids get back to regular life – safely

Families usually need help and guidance about how and when kids can safely get back to their usual activities after a concussion. Our nurse coordinator and clinical team will work closely with your child’s school, sports teams and extracurricular programs. We help them understand your child’s condition and their recovery plan. This collaborative approach makes sure that everyone is involved and understands what your child needs.

They were so sweet to my 5-year-old while checking out her concussion! Very nice and appropriate with children. They answered all my ‘scared momma’ questions and were so professional.
