Concussion Treatment and Management

Concussions are very common for those who are involved in recreational activities. In fact, one study conducted by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center found that approximately 1.7-3 million sports-related and recreation-related concussions happen each year, half of which go unreported or undetected. Concussions are serious injuries and, if undiagnosed, can lead to memory and concentration problems, mood swings, personality changes, fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, and more.

Concussion treatment and management involves pre and post-injury baseline testing, medical evaluation, headache management, vestibular evaluation, and more. While those who play sports are at risk of concussions or other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), they are the only people at risk. Adults aged 75 years or older had the largest rates of TBI-related hospitalizations and deaths, according to the CDC.
