How Can We Help?

Even a small head bump can be dangerous

Car accidents, falls, sports injuries: all create opportunities for a bang to the head. Ignoring it is less than smart. Even a small bump can create lasting damage including concentration issues, depression and cognitive processing delays.

How do I know if it’s a problem?

People often wonder whether it really is necessary to see a doctor after the slightest fender bender, slip or bump to the head, but the bottom line is that is takes very little force to bounce your brain around and in essence, that is what a concussion is.

Concussions, even mild ones, are classified as traumatic brain injuries (TBI). According to Mayo Clinic, symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Blurry vision
  • Drowsiness

Are there long-term complications?

According to the University of Utah, concussions are fairly common but can have long-term health consequences. Post-concussive syndrome affects few people, but for those who do experience it, it is devastating, creating work, school and personal issues. Symptoms include sleep problems, light and noise sensitivity, inability to concentrate and irritability and other personality changes.

Proper and swift diagnosis and treatment are crucial for a beneficial long-term outlook. Treatment generally includes physical rest, as well as “resting the brain” by refraining from activities that require complex thinking skills.
