Welcome to our first blog and allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dr. Michael DeCriscio, and I am the owner of Carolina Concussion & Physical Medicine in Wake Forest, NC. My training has allowed me to help those with concussion and vestibular injuries recover from acute to the complex, persistent unresolved injuries. I am a certified brain injury specialist by the Academy of Brain Injury Specialists. Along with my board certification in vestibular rehabilitation and extensive training in mTBI rehabilitation, I am excited to bring my knowledge and experience from my vestibular practice in Maryland to the Triangle of North Carolina.
In 2010, I founded Center for Dizziness & Balance Disorders in Hagerstown, MD where I trained and worked with physical therapists in diagnosing and treating concussion and vestibular injuries. In 2017, the practice was acquired by Summit Health Hospital System in Pennsylvania where I remain on staff training their physical therapists and providing consultation in vestibular rehabilitation and concussion management.
Over the past decade, I have diagnosed and treated thousands of cases relating to concussion injuries and dizziness/vertigo disorders. It my goal that the content of my blogs will help answer your questions pertaining to concussions, vertigo, dizziness and imbalance that may have gone unanswered.
Keep an eye out for my next blog coming soon!
