Concussion

Type: 
Consumer

Concussion often results in a headache, but headaches due to a concussion will usually diminish with the passage of time. One must be concerned if the headache becomes progressively worse or is accompanied by drowsiness. This may be caused by a hemorrhage between the skull and the brain, and can be life-threatening. After a concussion, there may be temporary changes in mood and attention. Repeated concussions are very serious and can cause progressive changes in the brain.

Testimonial

“I just wanted to take a minute or two to let you know how very informative my husband and I found the presentation which was held in St. Louis a couple of weekends ago. We walked away with a lot of information and didn't feel so all alone and confused.”
