If you’ve read our last blog post, you know that there are different types of concussions and several symptoms associated with them. If you experience any of the cognitive, physical or emotional symptoms after an injury, then you may have a concussion.
After a head injury, it is important to visit a family physician and/or medical doctor. Your doctor will review your medical history, evaluate your symptoms and conduct a preliminary neurological exam in order to make a diagnosis. Remember, signs and symptoms of a concussion may not appear until hours or even days after the injury so it is important to visit your doctor even if you think your injury was minor.
