CONCUSSION

Concussion is a mild brain injury resulting from rapid acceleration or deceleration of the brain within the skull. It is usually associated with high impact ‘collision’ either on the sports field or in an accident scenario on bike, vehicle or other. Symptoms vary from incident to individual and may include loss of consciousness, vomiting, headache, neck pain and more. Shockingly, up to 50% of concussions are never reported or supported with treatment.

POST-CONCUSSION CARE

Post-concussion care is critical for recovery and improper management can lead to further issues and long-term damage. This is becoming highly documented and researched regarding sporting concussions, but is applicable to anyone having had a concussion. Therapeutic interventions and support, provided by our experienced healthcare practitioners at Wellness Embodied, will improve recovery, helping you return to work, education and activity safely.
