Sports Concussion

For athletes, sports concussions are common but serious injuries. If you have a concussion and your symptoms last longer than one week, the Mary Free Bed Sports Concussion Program in Grand Rapids, MI is here to help you recover.

Our Sports Concussion Program experts offer specialized evaluations to educate your family, coach, and athletic trainer, and give them more information about the effects of your concussion. The evaluation also helps you with symptom management, injury recovery, and includes specific recommendations on how to safely return to your sports activities. Mary Free Bed's Sports Concussion staff will help get you back to playing the sports you love.
