What We Do
IT’S ONLY A CONCUSSION IF YOU LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS.
Data shows loss of consciousness actually occurs in less than 10 percent of concussions. “Concussion symptoms” are fairly nonspecific. Some common symptoms include temporary dizziness, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, nausea or vomiting, fogginess in thinking, difficulty with attention and concentration, disorientation, balance problems, sleep disturbance, and irritability. That’s a lot of potential indicators, and not a single one of them, or even a certain combination of them, is 100 percent indicative of head trauma. Depression can also be a symptom of a concussion.
An MRI or CT scan will prove whether a concussion occurred.
A concussion injures brain cells at a microscopic level resulting in widespread release of neurotransmitters in the brain. sometimes, structural damage does occur. CT or MRI do not typically visualize these changes.
All concussions resolve by three months.
While treaters of concussion used to think all concussive symptoms resolve in three months, more recent research has shown that a significant percentage of concussions can persist much longer.
Roadmap to Recovery
When life takes an unexpected turn for the worse, we understand that getting back on your feet often requires assistance. For individuals who have suffered a head injury, or for those with other neurological injuries and chronic illnesses, we are here to help in adjusting back to everyday activities. After calling our office to set up an initial consultation, patients will then meet with Dr. Ewert to discuss their current situation and discuss the route to recovery. Typically, a neuropsychological evaluation is required to further address the patient’s current level of functioning. Based on the results of this evaluation, Dr. Ewert will meet with the patient to go over the results and treatment programs offered in our office.
