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.
