Here's What You Need To Know About Concussions

A concussion is an injury to the brain. It is caused by acceleration or deceleration of brain functioning inside the skull following a significant impact to the head or other parts of the body.

The impact causes a sudden imbalance within the brain cells. This can result in decreased blood flow and temporary energy deficits within the brain.

Concussion symptoms may include:

  • Loss of Consciousness
  • Headache
  • Pressure in the Head
  • Neck Pain
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Balance Problems

Northwest Accident Clinic is where you want to go for concussion treatment.

As a partner with the CCMI, we have concussion treatment services & strategies including:

  • Exertional testing for return-to-sport readiness and sub-symptom threshold exercise programs for persistent symptoms
  • Vestibular, oculomotor, and cervical spine rehabilitation
  • Balance, reaction time, visual processing, and neurocognitive testing (pre-season baseline and/or post-injury/return to sport testing)
  • Educational resources

During the early stage following injury, a period of relative symptom-limited physical and cognitive rest is recommended. Research suggests 24 to 48 hours, however, these decisions are made on a case-by-case basis.

Following a short period of rest, the International Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport (2016) recommends a gradual increase in mental and physical activity by a licensed healthcare practitioner trained in concussion management.

Pre-season Concussion Testing

Multimodal pre-season testing is a series of physical and cognitive tests that provides a pre-injury overview of healthy brain function.

These tests can offer healthcare practitioners with an objective benchmark on which to compare should a patient sustain a concussion. It’s important to remember that not all baseline testing is created equal. CCMI has selected the best evidence-based tools available to provide you with comprehensive, multimodal, proven baseline-testing.

As concussion symptoms often disappear days to weeks before the brain has recovered, having valuable baseline information may help practitioners to make safer return to play decisions. Contact us to learn more about baseline testing to see if it’s right for you.
