Concussion Treatment-A concussions defined by the National Library of Medicine is a minor traumatic brain injury that may occur when the head hits an object, or a moving object strikes the head. It can affect how the brain works for a while. A concussion can lead to a bad headache, changes in alertness, or loss of consciousness.
Concussions can be caused by numerous things including falling of a ladder, bike, or icy sidewalk, sports related activities, car accidents or even the same repetitive jarring motion. A common misconception is that when you receive a concussion it usually knocks you out or you pass out. A lot of concussions are mild and result in seeing white spots or stars. Symptoms vary but can include:
- Acting confused, feeling spacey, or not thinking straight
- Being drowsy, hard to wake up, or similar changes
- Headache, Migraines
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory loss (amnesia) of events before the injury or right after
- Nausea and vomiting
- Seeing spots or blinking lights
- Loss of Time
