Beaumont Health Systems has opened a concussion clinic in Royal Oak to offer comprehensive, specialized care for children and adults who experience a concussion.
“Unlike other concussion programs, our new clinic is staffed by neuroscience experts providing prompt outpatient care,” says Dr. Daniel B. Michael, the clinic’s medical director. “Knowing the warning signs of a concussion and when to seek medical attention is critical.”
Michael says one of the most common injuries evaluated and treated in children is cerebral concussion, which is the onset of short-lived impairment of brain function after a mild head injury. Other than loss of consciousness, typical symptoms and signs include confusion, disorientation, dizziness, amnesia, headaches, loss of balance, nausea/vomiting, slurred speech, and double vision.
