The specialist doctors at UpAndRunning in Dubai can provide comprehensive head injury assessment, concussion screening and management program.
They offer neurocognitive baseline testing, outreach and education sessions to rugby clubs, and urgent assessment and evaluation of patients after a rugby related head injury or suspected concussion.
Any athlete with a suspected concussion should be medically cleared before engaging in contact sport, especially one such as rugby. Multiple concussions can be problematic if the brain has not had enough time to heal resulting in serious consequences following a secondary impact.
