Concussion

The Center offers some of the most comprehensive assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation services for children who have had a concussion. Our concussion experts work collaboratively with our schools to ensure the students best chance of recovery. And since The Center physicians work closely with the athletic trainers at local high schools provided by The Center Foundation, we can implement our concussion treatment protocols within high schools. When a younger child has a concussion, we keep in close touch with school nurses and counselors. If there are more complex needs, we work closely with High Desert Education Service District (HDESD) to ensure that we provide collaborative support.

For complex cases, Dr. Viviane Ugalde holds a weekly concussion clinic to help pediatric patients manage their symptoms that can linger for months after their injury. For more information, ask your primary care provider or call The Center at 541-382-3344.
