Concussions are typically considered a transitory event that will heal with time. And, in fact, this happens greater than 90% of the time. But, in some instances a concussion does not heal and the problems a person experiences continue for months and sometimes years. It is important for you to know, however, that in most cases the symptoms of a concussion will resolve and you will be back to normal soon after your injury.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury and when it occurs as a result of an automobile accident it often results in a person experiencing physical pain problems, emotional distress, and thinking difficulties. This combination of symptoms is called Post Concussion Syndrome.
The doctors at The Brain and Behavior Clinic have over 90 years of combined experience evaluating and treating patients with brain injuries and we have seen over 8000 patients in our clinic. We are experts at evaluating not only the type and extent of injury to your brain you have experienced but also how your injuries have affected you personally in your work, your family, and your social life. All of our doctors our fellowship trained in neuropsychology but, most importantly, we bring a great deal of compassion and caring each time we meet and treat a new patient.
If you have experienced a concussion and are feeling the persistent symptoms of that injury, you may have sustained a traumatic brain injury. You will need an accurate diagnosis and, most importantly, a comprehensive treatment program to competently address all of the important issues you are facing.
