A concussion occurs when there's an impact to the head. Whatever the cause, our concussion team is ready to help. For serious concussions, our physical and "thinking" rehabilitation can be a big step toward a complete recovery. If you are an athlete, or have a student athlete in the family, consider scheduling a baseline test. This simple, easy test gives a picture of healthy brain activity now, and it can help later if you or your student take a hit in a game.
Whether mild or severe, experiencing a trauma to the head may cause a concussion. This leads to nausea, vomiting or dizziness, among other symptoms. Millions of concussions happen each year, but may not require medical treatment. Seek treatment if you lose consciousness. Rehabilitation may be required. Rest and restrictive activity optimize recovery.
