What Does a Sleep Medicine Specialist do?

Evaluating Sleep Disturbances in Concussion Patients

Although sleep issues are frequently identified in concussion patients, these sleep disturbances are rarely assessed in the context of typical concussion treatment.

Given that sleep disturbances may contribute to delayed neurocognitive recovery, it is important to consider sleep health as part of a comprehensive recovery plan.


Sleep disturbance symptoms may vary between individuals throughout the course of their recovery, it is therefore recommended that sleep be measured at regular intervals over the entire recovery period. 


At Concussion Care Kelowna, our board-certified sleep specialist is an integral part of our concussion treatment, providing the care needed for a prompt and successful recovery.
