Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion

Have you or your child had recent trauma to the head? Sometimes people recover almost immediately, yet oftentimes symptoms can last for days, even weeks. Typically, a slower recovery is present in older adults, young children, and teens. Additionally, if you've had a concussion before, the chances of having another are considerable with a longer recovery time. 

Symptoms usually fall into four categories: 

  1. Thinking/Remembering:
    • Difficulty thinking clearly
    • Feeling lethargic
    • Difficulty focusing 
    • Poor memory
  2. Physical:
    • Headache
    • Blurred vision
    • Nausea and dizziness  
    • Sensitive to noise or light
    • Lack of energy
    • Trouble balancing
  3. Emotional/Mood:
    • ​Frustration
    • Sadness
    • Anxiousness and nervousness
  4. Sleep:
    • ​Differences in sleep patterns (more or less sleep)
    • Insomnia 

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) symptoms may appear immediately or be delayed after injury. Sometimes they may be overlooked as a minor or temporary issue. Please refer here for when you should seek immediate medical attention.

“I have seen so much growth in Kayla.  She appears much less frustrated and seems more able to cope with frustrating situations.  Last year she could not connect the dots to make a triangle to now being able to draw and microscope and it's parts from the board.  She enjoys reading now and is doing adult connect the dot books.  We used to spend hours on homework which was often not done correctly--to going to school all day and then math tutoring for an hour with no problems.  She still struggles with reading and spelling, but on her last report card got all A's and 1B.  She feels that the vision therapy has helped her be more successful in life (softball, school, etc).  My personnel feeling is that Kayla's vision problems created a feeling of chaos or loss of control---she struggled with trying to control her life in a chaotic situation.  Now she can make sense of the world visually, she is less angry, less stressed and feels more successful in life. Thank you for everything!”
