Brain Injury Medicine for the 21st Century
Since 1991, the Center for Neurorehabilitation Services (CNS) has been providing comprehensive, patient-centered, medical services for individuals who have sustained brain injury as a result of trauma, stroke, infection or other causes.
Our experienced team of medical professionals offers an array of disease-modifying therapies for individuals who have sustained acquired brain injuries.
CNS is now offering the Buffalo Concussion Treadmill Test for evaluation and treatment following concussion in adolescents and adults.
Studies from the University at Buffalo (SUNY) have shown a link between exercise intolerance and persistent problems after concussion. Using a standardized treadmill testing protocol, it is now possible early after a concussion is sustained to better identify who will have more recovery problems. In addition, once this pattern of altered brain physiology is identified, an exercise program of progressively higher cardiovascular exertion has been demonstrated to improve outcome and time course of recovery from concussion.
In keeping with its 25-year history of providing comprehensive and individualized care to those with concussions and TBI, CNS is pleased to be the first concussion center in Virginia to offer this assessment.
