CONCUSSION AND TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Have you or a loved one experienced a traumatic brain injury? Concerned about persistent headaches, mood changes, disorientation or memory issues stemming from it? Specializing in brain injury rehabilitation, we offer dedicated support and expert care for those affected by such injuries.
A concussion occurs when a force acts on the brain and causes various symptoms such as loss of consciousness, headaches, and dizziness. Concussions vary in intensity, from mild cases that heal quickly to severe ones causing lasting effects. It's possible to sustain a concussion (or mild traumatic brain injury, mTBI) without immediate realization, as symptoms may manifest later.
Recovery Process from a TBI
Healing from a concussion is distinct from other injuries. Current recommendations encourage beginning active therapy right away, provided that it does not spike one’s symptoms. Treatments should be customized to the losses that a concussed individual suffered, which is why a thorough evaluation is so important.
While concussion symptoms are similar among patients, there are also no two people who have suffered the exact same injury. Responses to concussion can vary widely, and therefore an individualized approach is best. Fortunately, that help is available.
