Concussions

Does This Sound Like you?

  • Recently involved in a motor vehicle accident
  • Sustained a blow to the head
  • Had a whip-lash accident
  • Wave surfed head first into Little Beach and woke up in the ER with a headache and smile like a West Virginian
  • Lost consciousness after a blow to the head

Do You feel this way?

  • Frequent intense headaches
  • Blurry vision/Difficulty focusing gaze
  • Sensitive to light and sound
  • Nagging symptoms that seem like they should be gone by now
  • Sudden onset dizziness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Forgetfulness or foggy-headedness

What Can I do to help my pain/difficulty?

  • ***If you have been in an accident or suffered a violent blow to your head (even if you maintained consciousness) seek emergency medical attention immediately***
  • If you have sustained a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury you should rest and avoid strenuous activity, mentally demanding tasks, bright/intense light, loud environments, and anything that may be stimulating for 72 hours. After symptoms have subsided you should continue to avoid known irritants and slowly progress back to normal activities. Be aware that individual responses to concussions can vary dramatically based on the individual's physiology and the severity and location of injury.
