For adults who were treated at a WakeMed Emergency Department with a diagnosis of concussion, it is recommended that you be cleared by a physician prior to returning to physical activity, work or school. Make an appointment with your primary care doctor to see them soon after your diagnosis in the emergency department. Most people who have a concussion return to their normal functioning within a matter of days or weeks. Your physician will help guide you through your recovery with a gradual return to most of your usual activities.
If after approximately four to six weeks you notice the following symptoms, you may need one or more of the related specialty services:
Your primary care doctor can help you determine if and when you need specialized services from WakeMed, such as neuropsychology and physical therapy.
If you do not have a primary care physician who feels comfortable managing concussion, we welcome you to make an appointment with a WakeMed Physician Practices primary care physician who cares for patients who have suffered a concussion.
Please call the WakeMed Physician Practices Primary Care Scheduling Line at 919-350-9100 and ask the operator for the practice location that is closest to where you live or work.
