Introducing Hawthorn Medical Comprehensive Concussion Clinic

Sports Medicine specialist Chad Beattie, MD, has introduced a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of concussions. The Hawthorn Medical Comprehensive Concussion Clinic offers a wide array of resources to treat concussions, including medications, therapy and neuropsychology, and uses ImPACT, a computerized system that measures aspects of cognitive functioning. The clinic has a team of specialists. In addition to Dr. Beattie, a certified athletic trainer, our occupational, physical and speech therapists work with patients to safely get them back to work, school or sport. For information or appointment, call the Concussion Clinic hotline at 508-961-2900, Monday-Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

When cool weather is in the forecast don't let it interfere with your fitness routine. To help you stay on track, here's a few tips:

Take it indoors! Join a fitness club with an indoor pool and track as a way to get in cardio.

Dress for brisk outdoor weather and go for a walk. Layers of clothing work best. Some malls also have free indoor mall walking clubs as well.

Ramp up daily activity. Take stairs whenever possible and park a distance from your destinations. Working in a few extra steps always helps!
