You have been diagnosed by your medical provider with a traumatic brain injury (TBI), otherwise known as a concussion. Common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, nausea, blurred vision, balance problems, forgetfulness, irritability, anxiety, and a variety of other symptoms.
It is important to remember that the symptoms of most brain injuries can be improved with specific rehabilitation, just like injuries to muscles or joints. During your TBI rehab if you experience any increases in dizziness, nausea, heart rate, or feelings of confusion or irritability, let our providers or staff know immediately. While most patients will not experience these types of side effects, when they do occur it is important to not be alarmed, as it simply means we need to take things a bit more slowly.
