Brian Rieger PhDPsychologist Brian Rieger, director of Upstate’s Concussion Management Program, talks about the diagnosis and treatment of a concussion, defined as a mild traumatic brain injury that occurs when the normal functioning of the brain is disrupted by a blow or jolt to the head.  There is a new law in New York State that requires schools to develop a concussion team consisting of parents, school and medical providers, which is modeled after the REAP Concussion Management Program.
