A concussion is an injury that is caused by a blow to the head which can shake the brain inside the skull.  The patient may or may not lose consciousness.  Patients may be dizzy, nauseated, or be unable to remember the events leading up to the injury.    Most patients recover from a concussion within a few weeks but can take several months to recover. Rest is important during the recovery phase.  It is also important to remember that the brain is more sensitive after a concussion so the patient should be as careful as possible to avoid any further blows to the head during the recovery period. 

If you are concerned your symptoms may be serious or not resolving, call our office for more information.

Repeated concussions can cause long-term effects such as problems with learning, coordination and speech.  Protect your brain :  it’s fragile and very valuable!
