A sports concussion can occur following direct contact, such as a head-to-head hit or hitting your head on the ground, or indirect contact, such as a hit to the body that causes your head to move or turn quickly.
Concussions can cause a variety of physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. Physical symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, neck pain, balance impairments, vision issues, noise or light sensitivity, exercise intolerance, and fatigue. Mental symptoms may include concentration difficulties, memory issues, or fogginess. In addition, a concussion can affect your ability to sleep normally.
Our sports concussion specialists perform a thorough evaluation and screening to identify what problems you may be having and recommend appropriate treatment.
