A Comprehensive Guide to Post Concussion Treatments and Therapies

Caring for Injured Workers’ Mental Health Here’s What You Should Do

A workplace accident is never expected, but its aftermath can be devastating. One such aftermath is a concussion, which can leave an injured employee with physical pain and emotional trauma. Most people recover fully within 14 – 21 days of their head injury. Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) can cause symptoms to linger for longer, such as a few months or even a year. Treatments and therapies can help the injury’s healing process and smooth the road to recovery.

What is Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS)

Post-concussion syndrome (PCS) is a condition that can occur in some individuals after they have sustained a concussion. Symptoms vary from person to person but commonly include headaches, dizziness, irritability, and sensitivity to light and noise. Some people may also experience difficulty sleeping or concentrating. The cause of PCS is not yet entirely understood, and it can be frustrating for individuals who experience it as it can disrupt daily life and potentially hinder productivity.

Severe Head Injury Can Cause Trauma to Different Parts of Your Brain.

  • Frontal Lobes: Manage social and cognitive behaviors, attention, memory, and speech muscle movement. Injuries from sudden motion, like car accidents, can impair these functions.
  • Temporal LobesHandle comprehension, speech, verbal and visual memory. Damage can lead to communication and memory difficulties, often caused by incidents such as car crashes.
  • Parietal Lobes: Control senses, body positioning, movement, and math abilities. Injuries can impact senses and spatial awareness.
  • Occipital Lobes: Responsible for vision, visual recognition, and attention. Damage can result in vision problems like blind spots or distortion.
  • Brain Stem: Manages basic functions like breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. Dysfunction can cause various deficits; severe damage may lead to brain stem death.
  • Cerebellum: Coordinates movement, balance, and reflexes. Injuries can affect balance, coordination and cause tremors and weak muscles.

With proper management and treatment, those who experience post-concussion syndrome can still fully recover.

August is National Eye Exam Month

August is National Eye Exam Month. And before you roll your eyes, let's discuss why we prioritize our vision health. Our eyes are crucial for our daily functioning, yet we neglect their well-being. An eye exam goes beyond just assessing our visual acuity. It can detect underlying health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure. We should get our eyes checked once a year to maintain optimal eye health. Don't wait until you have noticeable vision problems. Schedule your annual eye exam today and take charge of your eye health. Your eyes will thank you!
