My name is Jim Masterson, and I am the Director of Sports Medicine, and The Concussion Center at Excela Health in Greensburg, PA. We have an extremely busy concussion program, seeing local high school and collegiate athletes, as well those community members injured in motor vehicle, slip and fall, work related incidents etc. While my initial interest was in sports concussion, I have grown increasingly fond of seeing our adult population with ongoing persistent post concussive symptoms (PPCS). This group of patients is so misunderstood, and so need appropriate medical evaluation, treatment, and compassion. We have a team of athletic trainers, physical therapists, vestibular therapists, speech therapists, vision therapists, counselors, neuro chiropractors, EMDR therapists, yoga/meditation instructors and many more working together to improve outcomes, understanding, and general well-being for these individuals. Over the past several years we have started a well-attended support group for PPCS patients and their significant others, as well as a private face book page. We have nearly completed the process of starting a non-profit organization, The Westmoreland County Concussion Awareness Group. The ultimate goal is to improve the understanding of this invisible injury, and to increase available resources to promote neuroplasticity and healing. https://www.facebook.com/ExcelaHealth
