Concussion and head injury treatment and symptoms
A fall or hit to the head can take an athlete out of the game or an employee out of work, but may also lead to a concussion or other traumatic brain injury. Most people want to get back to their activities as fast as possible, but continuing to play, learn or work immediately after receiving a concussion can lead to further brain damage or even death.
By offering the latest and most widely used ImPACT™ technology to assess recovery, Prevea Health is dedicated to making sure each person is physically ready to safely return to their sport, school or work.
Signs and symptoms of a concussion
Symptoms of a concussion are the same for adults and children.
- Trouble remembering
- Sleepiness or trouble falling asleep
- Nausea or vomiting
- Ringing in the ears
- Loss of balance
- Poor coordination
- Blurred vision or sensitivity to light
- Slowed reaction times
- Mood swings, irritability or depression
After suffering a concussion, it is very important to have someone monitor your symptoms closely. Any red flag symptoms such as: slurred speech, vomiting (more than two times), changes in level of consciousness or uncontrolled headache should be evaluated immediately; call 911 or go to your nearest hospital emergency room.
If you suspect you’ve suffered from a concussion, consult your primary care doctor or call (920) 272-3300 to schedule an appointment with a Prevea concussion expert.
