Saskatoon Concussion Clinic @ StoonRMT

Advanced Concussion Protocol & Treatment

Trained Through the University of Calgary & University of Laval, Jenel Maruk RMT is Up To Date On The Current Protocol & Managment of Concussion Symptoms

An increase in social awareness about concussion began about two decades ago with the highly publicized cases of professional athletes who suffered concussions. In the USA and Canada, cases of dramatic complications of concussions in young amateur athletes later contributed to the development of more formal policies and requirements regarding the implementation of strategies to better prevent, recognize and manage concussions. As a result, concussion is now widely recognized as an important public health issue. 

Since 2016, in line with the mandate of their respective Ministries, the Public Health Agency of Canada and Sport Canada have been working together to address the issue of concussion in Canada. In the summer of 2017, one of the cornerstones of this strategy was released: the Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport.

Clearly, significant progress has been made in general awareness, scientific knowledge, understanding of concussion by clinicians and even implementation of properly structured concussion prevention and management strategies in resourceful sport environments. However, a lot remains to be done to ensure that everyone who sustains a concussion while involved in a sport, leisure activity or simply due to an accident has access to proper care and management throughout the recovery process at home, school or work.

 

What Are The Signs & Symptoms Of Concussion?

The signs and symptoms of a concussion can be subtle and may not show up immediately. Symptoms can last for days, weeks or even longer.

Common symptoms after a concussive traumatic brain injury are headache, loss of memory (amnesia) and confusion. The amnesia usually involves forgetting the event that caused the concussion.

Signs and symptoms of a concussion may include:

  • Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head

  • Temporary loss of consciousness

  • Confusion or feeling as if in a fog

  • Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event

  • Dizziness or "seeing stars"

  • Ringing in the ears

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Slurred speech

  • Delayed response to questions

  • Appearing dazed

  • Fatigue

You may have some symptoms of concussions immediately. Others may be delayed for hours or days after injury, such as:

  • Concentration and memory complaints

  • Irritability and other personality changes

  • Sensitivity to light and noise

  • Sleep disturbances

  • Psychological adjustment problems and depression

  • Disorders of taste and smell

Symptoms in children

Head trauma is very common in young children. But concussions can be difficult to recognize in infants and toddlers because they can't describe how they feel. Concussion clues may include:

  • Appearing dazed

  • Listlessness and tiring easily

  • Irritability and crankiness

  • Loss of balance and unsteady walking

  • Crying excessively

  • Change in eating or sleeping patterns

  • Lack of interest in favorite toys
