Concussion Rehabilitation

Concussions occur when an external mechanical force causes brain dysfunction and usually result from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body.

 

Signs and symptoms of a concussion

 

  • A headache or a feeling of pressure in the head

  • Sensitivity to light or sound

  • Fatigue

  • Sleep disturbances

  • Delayed response to questions

  • Confusion or brain fog

  • Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event

  • Dizziness, vertigo  or “seeing stars”

  • Tinnitus aka “Ringing in the ears”

  • Nausea and/or Vomiting

  • Slurred speech

  • Appearing dazed

 

 

Some symptoms of concussions may be immediate or delayed in onset by hours or days after injury, such as:

Cognitive complaints could consist of:

 

  • Concentration and memory complaints

  • Irritability and other personality changes (ideally ask mother or spouse)

  • Psychological adjustment problems and depression

  • Disorders of taste and smell

 

 

Post-Concussion Syndrome

 

Post-concussion syndrome is a clinical term when concussion symptoms that last longer than a week. If the symptoms persist or do not begin to improve, or in some cases, new symptoms can begin, rehabilitation becomes an absolute necessity.

 

 

We are pleased to offer rehabilitation service for the concussion and Post-Concussion symptoms in our clinics, Wainwright and Provost.
