Concussion Clinic

The CDC estimates that 1.8 to 3.6 million sports- and activity-related concussions happen each year in the United States. Because so many people are affected, providers at St. Luke’s have established St. Luke’s Concussion Clinic to support patients and their primary care physicians in southern Idaho.

Our Mission: Set the standard in the comprehensive care of concussion through a multidisciplinary approach to prevention and care, as well as research, family support, and community reintegration.
