A concussion is a type of brain injury where there is a change in a patient’s consciousness without structural damage to the brain as a result of some type of trauma to the head or body.  

Symptoms of a concussion include confusion, forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating, headache, emotional changes, and light and sound sensitivity. A person can but does not have to lose consciousness to have a concussion.  Sometimes symptoms of a concussion do not appear immediately after the injury.  

The media has brought a lot of attention to this subject due to athletes having long term complications caused by repeated head trauma.  Dr. Swaid can help patients, including athletes, after having a concussion return to full function in the safest way possible. www.aan.com
