If you engage in sport, you run the risk of suffering a head injury. A stray ball, a helmet-to-helmet collision, an awkward fall, and countless other scenarios often result in the head sustaining an injury such as concussion.
Emory Sports Medicine provides treatment for all head injuries, with a specialization in sports concussions. We are the first Atlanta sports medicine team providing Computerized Neuropsychological Testing (CNT) for athletic programs – the same concussion treatment plan that is used by professional teams in the NFL and NHL. CNT allows athletes to be tested before the season. If they suffer head trauma while engaged in their sport, an accurate report on their neuropsychological status can be determined.
