We Help You Recover Quickly and Safely From a Concussion Injury.
A CONCUSSION is a common head injury that may occur after trauma or while playing sports. Concussions are also known as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This is an injury that may result from a direct or an indirect blow to the head, face or body causing internal brain alterations and function. Academics have specifically defined Concussions as:
“Concussion is defined as a complex pathophysiological process affecting the brain, induced by traumatic biomechanical forces.” 1
We've partnered with SHIFT Concussion Management to provide accurate concussion measures and treatments. Our program is designed to help people who have experienced a concussion recover and resume normal activities as quickly, and safely as possible.
Concussions injure the brain due to the sudden shifting of the brain within the skull. This shifting of the brain is what causes the brain to have altered function and metabolic properties that spirals the victim into symptoms that range from minor to severe. The blow to the body, face or head can cause rotational injury to the brain as well as flexion/extension injury that can lead to shearing of the nerve fibers and spinal cord.
Concussions are difficult to recognize as signs and symptoms will be present however all imaging scans (CT, MRI) show up as negative and appear to be normal.
Recognition of which signs and symptoms are important as they help decrease the potential of the victim from resuming play and seeking out medical attention.
