At La Clinica, we understand the significant impact a concussion can have on your life. Our concussion rehab program is designed to provide comprehensive evaluations, expert care, and personalized treatment to address your particular needs.
What is a Concussion?
Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries due to a forceful blow to the head or a sudden jolt. You may also suffer a concussion due to:
- Sport-related incidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
Concussions are characterized by immediate onset of symptoms and disturbance in brain function. Other symptoms of a concussion include:
- Persistent or severe headaches
- Feeling lightheaded
- Difficulty remembering recent events
- Problem with concentration or processing information
- Feeling nauseated
- An increased sensitivity to light and sound
- Mood swings and irritability
- Difficulty with balance and coordination
It’s essential to note that a concussion requires proper evaluation and care. Most people don’t see the need to seek immediate help since it is termed “mild.” Seeking immediate medical attention ensures a safe and complete recovery. Our specialists at La Clinica are dedicated to helping you regain your cognitive and physical well-being.
How Long Does Recovery After a Concussion Take?
The duration of recovery from a concussion varies from person to person. Some patients experience a relatively quick recovery. Others require a more extended recovery period. It all depends on various factors. For instance, the severity of the concussion determines the recovery timeline. Mild concussions usually have shorter recovery periods, while moderate to severe concussions require more time. Another factor that determines the recovery timeline is prompt medical care. Receiving timely medical care can expedite your recovery. Other factors that influence the speed of recovery include:
- Overall health
- Preexisting conditions
- Compliance with treatment
- Proper monitoring of symptoms
La Clinica is determined to help you recover from a concussion immediately. Our specialists will provide support and therapies to expedite healing and ensure a safe return to your everyday life.
