While greater awareness has been raised about the significance of concussions, confusion often remains about what to expect and how to manage recovery from this kind of injury.
Dr. Kincade is able to provide consultations for individuals who have sustained a concussion. Consultations can provide education and advice with regard to expected effects and length of recovery from injury. Guidance can be provided with regard to when an individual should return to school, work, or sport. She is able to provide consultation including education about basic brain functions and expectations with regard to recovery from injuries.
Dr. Kincade has worked with both amateur athletes and professional athletes from the National Hockey League (NHL) and National Football League (NFL) over the course of her training who have sustained sports-related concussions.
