The Concussion Clinic provides comprehensive, collaborative care for kids and young adults who have suffered a possible concussion. After a thorough and individualized evaluation, we work with parents, teachers and athletic professionals to help kids return to school and sports in the safest and most efficient manner possible. The team of UAMS Concussion Clinic experts follow state-of-the-art, evidence-based guidelines to promote from concussion.

If you think your child has suffered a concussion, check with your physician or athletic trainer for a referral to the UAMS Concussion Clinic. Call (479)750-0125 for an appointment at one of our two locations in Northwest Arkansas or email concussion@uams.edu for more information.  In addition to concussion treatment, the team of UAMS Concussion Clinic experts are available to provide information and education to parents, coaches, and athletes.

The UAMS Concussion Clinic can partner with your organization (e.g., sports team, school, or booster club) to help implement a Concussion Management Program. This partnership can include creation of a concussion management plan to be practiced within your program at all athletic events (e.g., practices and games), education and training of athletic staff about concussion signs and symptoms, outreach education for parents, teachers, and athletes, and baseline testing of athletes/students.  If a concussion is suspected, the athlete is referred to our Concussion Specialist for diagnosis, treatment, and management of the injury.  Should school and athletic staff have concerns regarding an individual’s reintroduction to school and sports, our office will communicate on a case by case basis.
