The Seriousness Of Concussions

If you have gone through the list of symptoms associated with concussions and believe that you or your child may be affected, contact your doctor.  When determining the seriousness of a concussion, the doctor will test for the ability to pay attention and learning and memory skills.In addition, they may conduct other tests assessing your problem-solving skills. The doctor will also test your strength, balance, coordination, reflexes, and sensation. Other tests may include a CT scan or an MRI.
