When it comes to a traumatic brain injury, the signs and symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may not show up immediately. A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that results from a violent jolt, bump, or blow to the head that disrupts normal brain function.
You may experience or observe these signs in a concussed individual:
- Blurry Vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Amnesia surrounding the event
- Feelings of confusion
- Dazed appearance
- Delayed response to questions
- Slurred speech
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is important to undergo a neurological exam. This exam will check your balance, coordination, strength, hearing, vision, reaction to light, and neurological function and reflexes.
Once a baseline test is established, we can track the progress of improvement. By utilizing a post-concussion assessment and ImPACT test, we can document brain function and track the progression of improvement. All of this is done for you by our ImPACT certified physician.
