Concussion Treatment

People of all ages and walks of life can experience concussions, either during sports, work or enjoying recreational activities.  For many, a concussion is a debilitating experience that impacts vision, cognition, balance and movement.

Good Shepherd‘s Comprehensive Concussion Program provides specialized concussion treatment for all ages and walks of life, blending state-of-the art technology with Good Shepherd’s expertise and compassionate care.

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that may occur as a result of a direct blow to the head, face or neck. The impact causes a complex chemical reaction in the brain, disrupting normal functioning. An individual may experience a concussion without losing consciousness.

What are the Symptoms of a Concussion?

Concussions can cause symptoms that last hours, days weeks or months. The most commonly reported symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Feeling slower
  • Having difficulty concentrating
  • Dizziness
  • Fogginess
  • Fatigue
  • Light and sound sensitivity
  • Memory problems
  • Irritability
  • Depression

What are the most Common Causes of Concussion?

Many high-profile concussion cases are from sports injuries, but some of the the other most common causes are motor vehicle accidents, falls and assaults. Good Shepherd specializes in treating athletes and non-athletes who have sustained a concussion.
