Do you have ongoing concussion symptoms after an accident that still haven’t resolved?

Persistent concussion symptoms may indicate that you have a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Many traumatic brain injuries go undiagnosed and mistreated, especially if the concussion is sustained along with other injuries. This is because many traumatic brain injury symptoms can be subtle and many patients do not have visible physical signs of a brain injury such as bleeding from the head or a skull fracture. Although many brain injuries resolve, there are many patients who experience cognitive and psychological impairments that are life altering. Each year more than 3.5 million Americans will sustain a brain injury, which is a leading cause of injury-related death and disability in the United States. An estimated 5.3 million Americans currently have a long-term need for assistance to perform daily life activities as a result of a TBI. TBI can face effects that last a few days, or the rest of their lives.

Some Common Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms Are:

  • Memory problems
  • Poor attention/concentration
  • Headaches or migraines
