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. Patients may refer themselves or their physicians may refer them to the Concussion Clinic.
