Do I Have a Concussion?

Experiencing Concussion Symptoms?

The term concussion refers to a brain injury caused by a blow to the head or to the body.

Many people relate concussion injuries to sports such as football, rugby and soccer. In fact, we assess and treat an equal number of people whose concussions happened at work or home due to falls or falling objects. Falls are the most common cause of concussions.

Concussion symptoms range from subtle to significant. Most people who suffer a concussion do not lose consciousness, meaning an incident that initially seems minor could cause a concussion.

It is never too late to do something about your brain health. Contact us for an assessment if you are experiencing symptoms that could be concussion related. Our team is ready to help with the treatment and support needed to return you to your regular daily activities.
