CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT

A concussion is an injury to the brain most often caused by a mild or severe blow to the head. Any traumatic force to the head, neck, or body could put you at risk for developing a concussion. After a head injury, it can be difficult to tell if someone has sustained a concussion. Any person suspected of having a concussion should be evaluated by a trained professional. A concussion is a functional injury to the brain, so CT scan of the brain and most MRIs are frequently normal. Headaches, blurry vision, dizziness, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping and concentrating are some of the more common symptoms; however, appetite loss, depressed mood, and sensitivity to bright lights and noises can also be signs of a concussion.
