The Matthew Gfeller Center, in conjunction with UNC’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, hosts a weekly concussion clinic. Athletes who have sustained a sport-related concussion, and whose current symptoms have lasted for more than 3 weeks since the injury are eligible to attend our concussion clinic. We use a multimodal approach for diagnosing concussion related symptoms and devise an appropriate individualized treatment plan. Our team consists of athletic trainers, graduate students in Human Movement Science, and Physicians.
All concussion clinic appointments should be scheduled through Kristen O’Brien. Kristen will collect all insurance and basic injury information during the initial phone conversation. Once an appointment is scheduled, Kristen will send intake forms and directions to the patient.
