All concussions are serious — knowing the signs and finding the right treatment can prevent further injury. Norton Neuroscience Institute Sports Neurology Center is the first of its kind in Kentucky to provide a progressive and rehabilitative approach for treating athletes and getting them back in the game after concussion.

Athletes typically seek treatment for a concussion when they experience the following symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating

Expert Diagnosis and Technology to Treat Concussion

The center combines the expertise of nationally known sports concussion authority Tad D. Seifert, M.D., with facilities and technology that elevate treatment.

Dr. Seifert is an independent neurotrauma consultant for the National Football League and heads the NCAA Headache Task Force. He also serves on the board of directors for the National Headache Foundation. Currently, Dr. Seifert is the team neurologist for several Kentucky and Indiana colleges. He also is chairman of the Kentucky Boxing & Wrestling Commission’s Medical Advisory Panel.

Norton Sports Health uses ImPACT (immediate postconcussion assessment and cognitive testing) software. The computer-based test helps specialists determine the extent of a concussion and make safe return-to-play decisions. Norton Neuroscience Institute Sports Neurology Center specialists strive to treat patients within 48 to 72 hours of injury.

Norton Neuroscience Institute Sports Neurology Center uses a treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, heavy bag and other sports-specific equipment to assist with baseline and postinjury testing, visual and vestibular therapy and telemedicine capabilities. This allows for seamless care during recovery.
