Sports/Concussion/TBI

Symptoms can present themselves immediately following a concussion or after a few hours, and persist for months or even years after the injury. Once a concussion occurs, you are more susceptible to repeat occurrences, so please seek treatment as soon as possible following even a mild head injury to minimize your risk of long-term damage.

 

PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS:

headache, fatigue, nausea, light or noise sensitivity, balance problems, numbness/tingling, dizziness, changes in vision, ringing in ears, sleep issues

 

EMOTIONAL SYMPTOMS:

irritability, sadness, enhanced emotions, nervousness, anxiety, personality changes

 

LONG TERM SYMPTOMS:

difficulty concentrating or remembering, mental fog, slow mental and physical responses, confused or forgotten recent information, vision issues

 

If concussion symptoms continue, potential complications can occur, including:

 

» Post-Concussion Syndrome

Some people experience symptoms for weeks or months after the incident, such as headache, dizziness, and thinking difficulty.

 

» CTE or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy

CTE refers to brain degeneration likely caused by repeated head trauma, typically diagnosed during an autopsy.

 

» Post-Traumatic Headaches or Vertigo

Some people experience ongoing headaches or a sense of spinning or dizziness for days, weeks, or months following a brain injury.

 

» Epilepsy

People who have had a concussion double their risk of developing epilepsy within the first five years after the injury.
