Understanding Concussions

A concussion, often overlooked as a mild brain injury, can have profound impacts on your cognitive, physical, and emotional well-being. It typically occurs due to a sudden impact that causes the brain to move rapidly within the skull, leading to a variety of symptoms. 

These can range from headaches, dizziness, and nausea, to more severe cognitive and emotional disturbances. Understanding the nature of concussions is the first step in our comprehensive care approach, ensuring that our treatment strategies are as dynamic and multifaceted as the symptoms themselves.

Concussion Treatment Clinic Burnaby BC FAQs

1What Should I Do Immediately after Suspecting a Concussion?
If you suspect you or someone else has a concussion, it's crucial to seek medical attention immediately. Avoid physical activities that could worsen the condition and ensure a quiet and restful environment to support brain recovery. It's important to monitor symptoms closely in the initial hours and days following the injury. Early assessment by a healthcare professional can significantly impact the recovery process, guiding you towards the appropriate care and management strategies.
2How Long Does Concussion Recovery Typically Take?
The recovery period for a concussion can vary significantly from one individual to another, depending on the severity of the injury and the person's unique health profile. While some may experience symptom relief within a few weeks, others may take several months to fully recover. It's essential to follow a personalized treatment plan, which may include rest, gradual return to activities, and specific therapies aimed at managing symptoms and facilitating recovery.
3Can Concussions Have Long-Term Effects?
In some cases, individuals may experience long-term effects from a concussion, known as post-concussion syndrome. Symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and cognitive difficulties may persist for months or even years. However, with proper management and rehabilitation, most people can make a significant recovery. It's important to address symptoms early and follow a comprehensive treatment plan to minimize the risk of long-term effects.
4Can I Return to Sports or Physical Activities after a Concussion?
Returning to sports or physical activities after a concussion should be a gradual process, closely monitored by healthcare professionals. It's critical to fully recover and be symptom-free before resuming any physical exertion. Our clinic follows a stepwise approach to safely reintegrate clients into their sports and activities, considering individual progress and tolerance to ensure the risk of reinjury is minimized. Guidance from a specialized physiotherapist is essential in making informed decisions about safely resuming physical activities.
