Concussion Testing and Treatment

Are you suffering from symptoms after a concussion?

Symptoms include headache, nausea/vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, fatigue, unsteadiness, numbness/tingling, memory loss, poor concentration, changes to mood and behavior.

Over the last decade, an increased awareness of the seriousness of concussions has developed.
Concussion is most recognized as a consequence of contact or intense sporting activity. Concussions can also occur as a result of falls where there is a blow to the head, car accidents, falling or projectile objects that strike the head.

It is generally accepted that most concussions resolve within a matter of weeks without permanent disability or impairment. This is not always the case if proper treatment is not used early on.
