What is Concussion Care?

A concussion is an injury to the brain following a significant impact to the head typically due to sudden acceleration or deceleration. This results in a biochemical imbalance and decreased blood flow to affected areas leading to energy deficits within the brain.

Symptoms of a concussion include but are not limited to:

  • Headaches and nausea
  • Impaired cognitive function
  • Poor quality of sleep
  • Balance and coordination difficulty
  • fatigue
