Houston Concussion Rehabilitation Center

What Is a Concussion & What Are the Symptoms?

Concussions are a common type of head injury that occurs when a blow is dealt to the head or body. These injuries can be caused by a variety of incidents, including automobile accidents, sports accidents, workplace falls, and more. Even if you never lost consciousness or have any physical outward symptoms, such as cuts or bruises, it is still possible to suffer a concussion. Because it involves damage to the brain, it is absolutely critical to seek immediate medical treatment and rehabilitation services following a concussion.

Some of the most common symptoms of a concussion include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Blurry vision
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Mood changes, such as anxiety, depression, anger, or irritability
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Problems balancing your body
  • Not being able to think clearly, concentrate, or remember information
  • Loss of consciousness or memory

Recovering From a Concussion

While concussions should be taken very seriously, with the proper amount of rest and rehabilitative treatment, most people will make a full recovery. Depending on the type and severity of the injury, age, and history of previous concussions, recovery times may range anywhere from days to months.
