Concussions and Brain Health

 

The Colorado Springs School is proud to be partnering with Performance Brain Health Centers in Colorado Springs, Colorado’s leader in concussion and brain healthcare for adults and children.  Their Beyond the Bump initiative, a pro-active advanced pre-concussion screening and concussion management program, is part of a comprehensive set of concussion services.

Screening begins with a state-of-the-art, individualized assessment to establish baseline functioning as well as to detect risk factors to future concussion. The Performance Pediatrics team will then discuss the risk of a concussion and how to optimize performance so that the athlete can become strong and resilient, no matter the sport.

Simply contact PP and make an appointment for the initial, baseline testing which cost $30. Then if a concussion is suspected with your child, Performance Pediatrics will make a full assessment within 24 hours, using the baseline test data.  A management plan, which includes neuropsychological tests and treatment options, will be implemented, and the athlete will be fully evaluated before released to play again.
