Concussions can happen to anyone. By knowing the signs and symptoms, as well as treatment available options, you can ensure the best care possible.
Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries, caused by a direct or indirect blow to the head that is hard enough to disrupt the brain’s metabolic functioning. This type of disruption is what leads to the physical, cognitive, emotional and sleep-related symptoms associated with this condition.
While our expert, board-certified neurosurgeons don’t treat concussions outside of trauma consultations, they work in partnership with the Concussion Institute at Northside Hospital Duluth to provide our patients with comprehensive concussion prevention and treatment program.
