Concussion Care

Evidence-based medicine is utilized to assess the severity and progress of injuries and a specific treatment plan is provided for each patient using a variety of clinical tools.

What are some common signs and symptoms of a concussion?

The signs and symptoms of a concussion may appear within minutes or even hours following the injury. While most concussion symptoms can be categorized into four distinct classes, each individual who has sustained a concussion will experience a unique combination of symptoms:
 
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Sensitivity to light,
  • Dizziness
  • Balance problems
  • Slowed reaction times, feeling mentally “foggy,” confusion, problems with memory or concentration
  • Irritability, heightened emotions, atypical personality changes, mood swings
  • Fatigue, drowsiness, insomnia, sleep disturbances
 

If concussions are properly managed, recovery can occur quickly or over the course of weeks. Physicians on staff are available to evaluate concussions and create a treatment plan that may speed recovery.
