Concussion & Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) Rehabilitation
THE THIEF: Concussion adn Post-concussion syndrome
Every day I meet people just like you who are suffering from concussion symptoms including: headache, vomiting, balance problems or dizziness, hazy/foggy/groggy, concentration problems, and mood changes . Most are massively frustrated, and it sucks the life from them. Simple tasks become unbearable with these symptoms that comes on for NO REASON. Unfortunately, most people do the wrong thing when they following a concussion. Most people just wait and hope it gets better.
You are in some sort of an accident. You may have or may not have hit your head. You feel like you are in a constant fog and cannot focus. Simple daily tasks that took no effort before are now exhausting. You feel like your mood and demeanor is different; you are not you. Busy environments, like the grocery store, intensify all of your symptoms.
Concussions are thought of as only a sports injury. It is a lot more prevalent than most people know. 19.8 concussion occur in ever 100,000 male workers and 1 out of every 61 occupants in a tow away car accidents have a significant concussion. It is estimated that 3.8 million concussion occur in the United States each year costing over $60 billion in health care cost.
It is imperative that concussions are diagnosed and treated by a specialist. Without treatment, 15-30% of people who had concussion will experience persistent symptoms. The typical treatment approach is to rest for a couple of weeks. The problem is that concussions happen due to a blow to the neck or body and the neck tends to be involved. It is crucial to have a thorough assessment of the neck, eye function, and balance and dizzy impairments. If these are not address, persistent problems may occur.
