Concussion

Treatment And Recovery

Utilize cutting-edge brain training technology to safely heal and get back to the playing field.

Don’t wait to get concussion care.

When it comes to concussions, early treatment often means faster recovery, especially if it is your first concussion. Concussions are brain injuries that result from the brain hitting the skull because of excessive force. Many of the people who come into our Denver brain center suffered their concussion from playing contact sports, but concussions can also be caused by things like a fall or whiplash in a car accident. If you have suffered a concussion, NeuraPerformance Brain Center can help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

General advice for
concussion treatment:

  • Get plenty of sleep and rest
  • Avoid visual stimuli like video games or computer screens
  • Ease back into normal activities slowly
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity or challenging mental tasks
  • See your doctor before resuming sports

How long does concussion recovery take?

In most cases, concussion recovery takes between one to two weeks. However, if your concussion is diagnosed late or you don’t get enough rest or follow your health care provider’s recommendation, concussion recovery may take longer.

Some people develop a condition called post-concussion syndrome, though, and this causes concussion recovery to take months, or sometimes longer. If you have had a concussion and the symptoms are lasting for longer than 10 days, you should make an appointment with your doctor to check for signs of post-concussion syndrome. 

You can speed up your concussion recovery by:

  • Reducing screen time, which can make headaches worse
  • Limit exposure to bright lights and loud sounds
  • Rest both your body and your mind
  • Be patient! Don’t jump right back into your daily activities
  • Visit NeuraPerformance Brain Center in Denver!
