Concussion Management

Have you ever had your “bell rung?” What about a feeling of “fogginess” after a header? Or how about feeling “dizzy” after hitting your head after a fall? Each of these symptoms could be the result of a concussion. A concussion is considered a mild traumatic brain injury that actually alters the way your brain functions. Typical symptoms after a concussion include headaches, difficulty concentrating, loss of memory, decreased balance and poor coordination. While most symptoms are transient, some symptoms may persist and cause difficulty with daily activities or sports activities. It’s a common misconception that a concussion occurs only as result of head trauma resulting in unconsciousness.
