Head injury? Concussion? We can help!

Posted by admin on August 15, 2018

Picture2.pngConcussions are an unfortunate part of sports participation, particularly in contact and collision activities. Coping with the injury and its consequences is frequently stressful for the athlete and all those involved. Questions about short- and long-term effects of the injury, returning to participation or even retiring from the activity are often involved in the treatment of sports-related concussions. Answers to such questions require specialized care from healthcare providers skilled in the management of head injuries.

Dr. Matt Lively has more than twenty years of experience treating concussions at all levels of participation: recreational, high school, college, and professional. At Mountaineer Orthopedic Specialists we now offer timely and efficient concussion care to patients of all ages to help them safely return to activity.
