Concussion Management
in Etobicoke

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that can result from a blow to the head or a sudden jolt to the body. It’s crucial to understand that concussions are not exclusive to athletes; they can happen to anyone in various situations, such as accidents, falls, or even during recreational activities.

Recognizing Concussion Symptoms

Identifying the signs and symptoms of a concussion is vital for prompt and appropriate care. Common symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Sensitivity to light and noise
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory problems
  • Fatigue

It’s essential to remember that symptoms may not always appear immediately and can manifest hours or even days after the injury. If you or someone you know experiences any of these symptoms after a head injury, seek medical attention promptly.
