Concussion Clinic

A variety of injuries can cause a mild to moderate concussion: accident, sports contact or a fall. Different symptoms can occur following the injury. Most improve over a short period of time, but other may persist for weeks to months.

The most common symptoms following a mild to moderate concussion are:

  • Dizziness
  • Feeling depressed
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Forgetfulness
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Poor concentration
  • Irritability and frustration
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Decreased alcohol tolerance
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Anxiety
  • Light sensitivity
  • Nausea and/or vomiting

If symptoms persist or become worse, or significantly interfere with daily activities, therapy may be helpful. A physician referral is required for the Concussion Clinic.
