A concussion can occur following significant hit to the head or another part of the body, which causes a sudden movement of the brain inside the skull.
The brain is one of the most important organs in our body and is responsible for so many processes. This requires energy. When the brain is damaged, it requires even more energy not only to continue to process information and commands, but also to repair itself. It is this mismatch between the supply and demand of energy that leads to symptoms such as: headaches; pressure in the head; neck pain; nausea or vomiting; dizziness; imbalance; poor concentration; and sensitivity to light and sound.
You cannot see a concussion on a scan because it is not a physical injury, but rather a mismatch between the amount of energy used compared to the amount of energy available.
There is more to managing a concussion than just rest, especially if rest has not helped settle the symptoms.
We will conduct a series of tests to determine what body systems are contributing to your symptoms, and we will create a specific rehabilitation program to help you get back to school, work, sport, and life.
