Concussions- What you Need to Know:
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that occurs when the head suddenly and violently hits an object. This can cause the brain to move around inside the skull, which can lead to bruising, tearing and bleeding. Concussions can also occur when the head receives a sudden impact, even if there is no direct contact with the object. For example, a concussion may occur if you are in a car accident and your head snaps forward and then back again.
There are three stages of concussion:
- Grade I concussion: This is the least serious type of concussion. There are no symptoms other than brief confusion.
- Grade II concussion: This is a more serious concussion that can cause vomiting, headache, difficulty waking up and blurred vision.
- Grade III concussion: This is the most serious type of concussion and can cause loss of consciousness, memory problems, seizures and paralysis.
If you think you or someone else may have a concussion, it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible. There are many ways to treat a concussion, but the most important thing is to rest and avoid any activity that could make the symptoms worse. If you have a concussion, you should not return to your normal activities until your symptoms have completely resolved.
Your doctor may refer you to a physiotherapist or an occupational therapist to help you recover from your concussion. Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy can help with symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and balance problems and they can help with symptoms such as fatigue, difficulty concentrating and memory problems.
So, if you’re a parent with a child battling with ADHD symptoms, or an adult who finds it difficult to manage everyday tasks because of ADHD, don’t hesitate to reach out to an occupational therapist. They are trained professionals who can help make life less stressful and more manageable.
Occupational therapy is an evidence-based healthcare practice that utilizes activity-based interventions to enhance an individual’s physical, mental, and social well-being. This therapeutic approach goes beyond traditional treatments, aiming to address the unique challenges faced by individuals with ADHD.
