WHY IT’S IMPERATIVE TO ADDRESS YOUR CONCUSSION IMMEDIATELY?

As you probably already know, a concussion (a.k.a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury) due to an impact to the head or other part of the body can cause damage to the brain, with or without loss of conciousness! If left untreated, these symptoms can become very difficult to manage on a day to day basis.


Such effects include…

⚠️Dizzy or Lightheaded,
⚠️Clumsy
⚠️Forgetful
⚠️Fatigued
⚠️Frequent Headaches
⚠️Easily Distracted
⚠️Difficulty Remembering Things
⚠️Struggling To Read Or Write
⚠️Loss Of Vision or Hearing
⚠️Stuttering
⚠️Loss Of Speech

No one intentionally leaves a traumatic brain injury untreated. Unfortunately for some, it’s hard to differentiate symptoms in the beginning from symptoms associated with whiplash, which is also common on the sporting field, in MVA and with slip and falls.

As such, this further emphasises the importance having trained specialists assess you or your child after sustaining a concussion.
The best thing to do if you, your child or someone you care about experiences a concussion, is to book an assessment with one of our highly trained Concussion Team at The Foundations For Integrated Health.

What Is Baseline Testing And Why Does Your Child Need One?

Concussions are almost a certainty with any sport and immediate attention is necessary. Rest over the first 3-5 days is mandatory, but many end up in a dark room for weeks mainly because they have not consulted with trained Concussion Management health professionals.
In addition, due to the complex nature of concussions, medical complications may still occur even after the patient believes he or she has recovered. For example, many athletes are told to return to their sport based on a lack of symptoms for 2 weeks. In fact, scientific studies suggest that return to normal blood flow in the brain takes much longer! If you sustain another hit at this time, the consequences and return to function take MUCH longer and may have lifelong effects.
This is why it is essential for any responsible parent to have a Baseline Test performed on their child before they participate in any sport.
By having your child’s Baseline test done prior to their sport season, practitioners can now accurately determine that your child has made a full and complete recovery based on real data and not “just guessing” and avoid any long term sequelae
Don’t Risk Your Child’s Future.
