WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?

A concussion is a type of head trauma that causes injury to the brain and may reduce your brain's ability to function at its best. The vast majority of concussions are brought on by blows to the head, whether by work, sports, or a random accident. Concussions can vary in severity, ranging from mild to more serious, and are often classified as a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Without the guidance of a medical professional, it can be hard to determine how severe a concussion is at first, which is why our team at The Wellness Institute of Dallas encourages patients to seek help if head trauma is endured. In some cases, the brain can rattle in the skull during a concussion, causing potential injury and lowered brain function. If you think you or a loved one have experienced a recent concussion, contact our Dallas, TX office for help.
