Post Concussion Therapy

Post-Concussion Therapy and Education at Gunnison Valley Health

Every day, new research from throughout the globe points to the significant impacts a concussion, or multiple concussions, can have on brain health. We live in an active community and the activities we participate in can easily lead to concussions. Knowing this, here at Gunnison Valley Health we are committed to leading the way in awareness, prevention, and treatment of concussions.

Our Concussion Team is led by physical therapist Kristin Grimes, DPT. Kristin is the only Neurologic Certified Specialist in western Colorado. She brings a wealth of knowledge and a passion for brain health to her work.
