Many concussions go unreported, but an estimated two million kids in the U.S. suffer these brain injuries each year. Concussions, even when mild, can still cause serious problems. Children’s brains are constantly developing and require specialized care to reduce the risk of permanent damage. At Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s, the Pediatric Concussion Program offers a collaborative effort between Neurology, Sports Medicine, Neuropsychology, Neurosurgery, Rehabilitative Services and many more.
