Concussion


Concussion is a minor traumatic brain injury that may occur when the head hits an object or a moving object strikes the head. It can affect how your brain works for a while. A concussion can lead to a bad headache, changes in alertness or loss of consciousness. A concussion can result from a fall, sports activities and car accidents. A big movement of the brain can cause you to lose alertness and become unconscious. The length of time a person stays unconscious may be a sign of the severity of the concussion.
 
If you have one or more of these symptoms go to the hospital or call your doctor in a case of concussion. The doctor will perform a physical examination and check your nervous system. There may be changes in your pupil size, thinking ability, coordination, and reflexes.  If it is not serious then herbal remedies and supplements can be taken.
 
In all cases of concussion see a doctor who will perform a physical examination and check your nervous system.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal remedies
