What is a concussion?

 

A concussion is a chemical imbalance of the brain that most often occurs after a head trauma.  Head trauma can occur in sports, car accidents, falls, etc.   

 

Concussions cannot be diagnosed with traditional methods such as CT, MRI, or X-ray. Symptoms of a concussion include headaches, loss of consciousness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, slurred speech, memory problems, balance deficiencies, sleep disturbances, mood changes, irritability, and many more. 

 

 If you suspect a concussion in yourself or a loved one you should seek immediate treatment from a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of concussions.
