Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is proud to offer the first Concussion and Head Trauma Program in the region. The program is being provided at 447 Plaza Court, Building 200, Suite B East Stroudsburg.
The Concussion and Head Trauma Program at LVHN diagnoses and treats concussions caused by sports injuries, falls, workplace injuries and auto accidents using a multidisciplinary approach. The team consists of concussion specialists as well as neuro-optometrists and physical, vision, speech and cognitive therapists.
Daniele Shollenberger, CRNP, Program Director and Practice Leader of the Concussion and Head Trauma Program at LVHN, feels the Concussion and Head Trauma Program is an important asset to the Pocono region. "Concussions are serious and need appropriate treatment. Unfortunately they are also invisible so diagnosing a concussion can be tricky. There are no specific blood tests or scans that diagnose concussions. Rather a detailed and focused evaluation performed by concussion specialists will assess for concussion."
