Concussions can cause significant injury to the brain that can be difficult to diagnose. Our specialists are trained to evaluate symptoms and offer precise treatment to meet patients’ needs.
Concussions can often resolve on their own, but lasting damage to the brain can occur without proper treatment
Concussion symptoms vary depending on the impact, your age, previous head injuries, and other factors.
Symptoms can affect your thinking, sleep, and mood, as well as your body. They may include the following:
- Cognitive problems such as focusing, concentrating, learning, remembering, or organizing
- Emotional symptoms such as feeling confused, irritable, tearful, moody, frustrated, anxious, depressed, or unmotivated
- Physical symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, vision, balance problems, or loss of consciousness
- Sleeping patterns that are different from before the concussion, including difficulty falling or staying asleep
We assess your symptoms and develop a personalized treatment plan that may include the following:
- Occupational therapy to help you manage everyday activities
- Speech therapy to restore or improve communication skills
- Vestibular physical therapy to improve your balance, vision, sensitivity to light, dizziness, and any head or neck pain
