Head Injury Treatment in Layton, Syracuse, Farmington, and Roy
Head injuries can lead to serious long-term problems for many people. If you have sustained a head injury, it is vital to seek medical treatment immediately. Concussions are among the most common traumatic brain injuries, and unfortunately, many people do not seek proper medical care. Wasatch Peak Physical Therapy specializes in head injury rehabilitation, and we focus on helping to guide patients through safe, effective treatments.
Symptoms of Head Injury
If you have suffered a concussion, you have suffered a brain injury and need to seek medical attention. Sports and recreational activity can lead to injuries, causing several individuals to struggle with head injury symptoms, including:
- Problems with balance and coordination
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Blurred vision or double vision
- Slurred speech
- Difficulty with short and long term memory
- Brain fog
- Mood swings including bouts of aggression and irritability
- Depression and anxiety
While some symptoms linger for a few days and go away, others are long-lasting. Repetitive concussions can lead to serious brain damage and can reduce life expectancy. Contact our office if you have a prior history of concussions and other head injuries with symptoms.
