In brief: Help with recovery

Your doctor will examine you and may do a computerized test to detect which areas of your brain are injured.
You will set up a treatment plan together, which will allow your brain to rest. This may mean you are out of school or work and physical activity for some time. Some need specialized medications to manage the headaches & insomnia while and others need neuro or vestibular rehab.

In brief: Identify one early

There isn't anything a doctor can do to "help" a concussion get better faster. However, it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion to help avoid making it worse.
A doctor can help diagnose the concussion, identify activities that should be avoided to let the concussion resolve, and help avoid the "post-concussion syndrome.".
