What is a concussion?
Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury and can change the way our brain functions – causing it to work less optimally. It may be caused by either a direct blow to the head, face, neck, or elsewhere on the body with an “impulsive” force transmitted to the head. Contrary to what many believe – you can suffer a concussion even if you don’t hit your head!
What kind of symptoms may you feel after a concussion?
Concussions can result in many side effects and can have both a physical and mental effect on your health. These symptoms can begin immediately or may develop days or weeks after your injury. At PhysioDNA our approach to post-concussion rehabilitation is multi-pronged in order to address all of these potential effects.
