Rest Is Best When Handling A ConcussionSeptember 22, 2018 2:17 pm
You may remember many years ago that doctors would suggest that you don’t fall asleep when you’ve sustained a head injury for fear that you would fall into a coma, but that strategy has changed significantly as studies on concussions specifically have pointed to a new way to manage symptoms. The simple answer to what to do if you get a concussion is REST. Rest is best when dealing with a head injury. Your brain wants to rest and while it may take some time for symptoms to subside, resting after a head injury is now the recommended treatment.
That being said, after a serious head injury you still may want to be seen at a New Haven urgent care center to make sure all looks good and there is nothing more serious going on with your head and brain.
If you’re not sure whether you’ve sustained a concussion, some of the symptoms include, but are not limited to:
- Ringing in your ears
- Blurry vision
These are just some of the symptoms of a concussion and while rest is the most important way to combat these symptoms you may also find it important to be seen so that you can confirm your suspicions that you have in fact sustained a concussion.
