- Have you suffered a concussion or mild head injury?

- Have you noticed increased pain in your knees/ankles/back following a mild head injury?
A concussion is defined as an acute deceleration event causing nervous system dysfunction. The mechanism of the injury determines the severity of symptoms. Most patients who develop Post Concussion Syndrome may not seek help for months or even years following the injury. Many patients are completely unaware of the connection between their symptoms and the injury and may be quite confused by the change in their quality of life. Symptoms can include: poor vision, dizziness, headache, migraine, vertigo, imbalance, neck pain, clumsiness, anxiety, depression, short-term memory loss, poor concentration, decreased academic performance and decreased fine motor skills.
