What is a concussion?

A concussion can be simply defined as a disruption in neurological functioning following a significant impact to the head or elsewhere on the body. Concussions most often occur as a result of a collision in sport, a motor vehicle accident, or a fall.

This causes a biochemical imbalance within brain cells as well as decreased blood flow and temporary energy deficits within the brain. 

Studies have shown that any activity, both mental and physical, in the immediate days following concussion can delay the process of recovery and should be avoided until the individual is completely symptom free.

What is baseline testing?

Baseline testing is the practice of having an individual (especially an athlete) complete a variety of concussion assessment tools before participating in their sport. 

This usually occurs before the start of a season in order to get baseline or “pre-injury” measurements. In the event of a suspected concussion, assessment is done again and these post-injury measurements are compared to the baseline measurements. 

The goal of this testing is to identify cognitive differences in the athlete before and after the injury.

Frequently Asked Questions About Concussion Management

Reach out if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a blow to the head or a sudden jolt to the body. It can cause a range of symptoms that can last for days, weeks, or even longer.

A concussion is typically diagnosed through a physical examination and a review of the individual’s symptoms and medical history. In some cases, imaging tests such as an MRI or CT scan may be used to rule out more serious brain trauma.

Symptoms of a concussion can vary widely, but common symptoms include headache, dizziness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating or remembering things, sensitivity to light or noise, irritability or mood swings, sleep disturbances, balance problems, vision disturbances, and nausea or vomiting.

Returning to sports or other activities after a concussion should be done with caution and under the guidance of your therapist. They will evaluate your individual symptoms, recovery progress and will provide a clearance when is safe to do so.
