Dealing with Concussion Symptoms
Concussions are caused by moderate to severe head trauma. Motor vehicle collisions can result in concussions due to the forces placed on a person's head. A car wreck can place forces on the brain moving it from side to side and backwards and forwards. If concussion symptoms last beyond three weeks, a doctor may make a diagnosis of post-concussion syndrome. Post-concussion syndrome can be a permanent diagnosis leading to a lifetime of pain and suffering.
At the present time, there is no cure for post-concussion syndrome. To deal with the symptoms, a doctor may recommend rest and the avoidance of stressful activity. Pain-relievers are commonly prescribed to deal with the continuing headaches.
