CONCUSSION ASSESSMENT TREATMENT
Do I Need A Concussion Assessment Treatment?
One of the top concerns after an accident, especially if there is a head injury, is a concussion. A concussion is serious and you should not delay if you believe you need concussion assessment treatment. We know the serious nature of a concussion and take every step to ensure that you are assessed properly. A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that is associated with a blow to the head, or whiplash injury, which is common during an auto accident. We are dedicated to treating personal injury patients as individuals with unique cases and those with a concussion are no exception. Early assessment and treatment are vitally important to concussion recovery and can help to ensure that there are no long term implications.
We know that just like no two patients are the same, neither are their concussions or symptoms. We take every concussion assessment treatment seriously and are committed to helping you recover and resume normal life as soon as possible and medically safe. Through our extensive assessment, we can determine not only if you have a concussion but the severity and necessary treatments. A series of tests will allow us to check your balance, memory, hearing, vision, reflexes, and attention span. If necessary, we will also prescribe imaging, such as a CAT scan or a CT scan, to make sure there is no bleeding or bruising of the brain. Reviewing the results of all these tests allows us to put together a treatment plan that is safe and effective and gets you back on your feet.
If you have not had a concussion assessment and you are suffering from headaches, fatigue, nausea, mood changes, memory or sleeping problems, you should consider having an assessment right away. These all could be symptoms of a concussion and you do not want to wait to begin treatment.
