Concussion Raleigh


Concussion is a common term associated with people passing out or losing consciousness. However, it may not always be accurate as, in some cases, the person may not even pass out. Concussions stretch and bruise nerves and blood vessels and cause chemical changes in your brain that result in a temporary loss of normal brain function. It is a traumatic brain injury that affects brain function. The effects can usually be temporary in the form of headaches, concentration, memory problems, or even coordination. Usually, a blow to the head or upper body can result in a concussion. Sometimes, we hear people involved in auto accidents experience concussions. It is usually common but may not be life-threatening. However, the effects of a concussion can be severe and may last days, weeks, or even longer.

What Causes Concussion?

Concussions are caused by direct trauma to the head, such as falling, getting hit, or being in an accident, and even sports injuries, assault, or other direct injury to the skull. Sometimes, several mild injuries can build up, resulting in more damage than unimagined. A significant movement in the brain can make a person lose alertness. Sometimes, a person may not pass out but may describe seeing all black, white, etc. Some physical signs and symptoms may be headache, ringing in the ears, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, confusion, dizziness, blurry vision, etc.

Our Approach

We thoroughly examine the patient, including medical history, signs or symptoms, and other details about the injury, such as the cause and how it occurred. We may perform neurological, cognitive, and imaging tests to check your overall health. As part of the process, we also question the patient's ability to pay attention, recall, learn, or solve problems. After a thorough examination, a practical course of treatment comprising pain management techniques is performed for the patient’s overall well-being. For each patient, we create a personalized treatment plan to help them find relief and return to daily activities.
