Photo Gallery: Concussion Care at Weisman Children's Rehabilitation Hospital

Over the last 10 years, concussions have doubled by 200 percent in children ages 14-19. Emergency room visits for concussions among children ages 8-13 have doubled, as reported by the American College of Pediatrics.

Weisman Children's Rehabilitation Hospital (WCRH) is a leading provider of rehabilitation with five outpatient facilities throughout southern New Jersey that specialize in individual pediatric treatment. Several staff members carry a certification in brain injury.

In 2013, WCRH developed a post-concussive program after being approached by a referring physician who specializes in concussion. A comprehensive team approach was initiated to maximize outcomes and return patients to all prior levels of activity as quickly and safely as possible. The program employed the most current evidence. Since the start of the program, more than 300 children have been treated.

For a cover story profile on the WCRH concussion protocol, see the October 2016 issue of ADVANCE.
