Concussions: The Visual Systems Role in Treating Them
Human Performance Following Concussion
Seeking medical attention immediately following a concussion is key to recovery as when left undetected, concussions can result in long-term brain damage and may even prove to be fatal.
Concussions are a serious injury, and can be detrimental. Any blow to the head can be problematic, but the second or third occurrence can cause permanent long-term brain damage. Furthermore, there are many visual issues that can arise from the result of a concussion or traumatic brain injury. Vision is a key aspect in brain development as 90% of the information given to the brain comes from the visual system.
Treating visual systems in the rehabilitation of concussions is imperative as this corresponds to brain development.
Do you know the visual symptoms post-concussion?
Studies show that 90% of TBI patients suffer from visual symptoms such as blurred vision, sensitivity to light, reduction or loss of visual field, headaches with visual tasks, reading difficulty, difficulty with eye movement, and short attention span, reading comprehension, reading speed, completing assignments, processing speed, short term memory, and concentration.
Join Neuro - Developmental Pediatric Optometrist, Dr. Ingryd Lorenzana and Brain Trainer, Ashley Fischer, as they discuss the importance of rehabilitating the visual system in concussions and the impact the visual system has on brain development.
It is important to be aware of the importance of vision in the post concussion treatment for maximum rehabilitative success. Concussions that are unreported may go on to negatively affect school, work, sports, and overall quality of life.
Concussions are impossible to prevent and occur among all age groups. Understanding the signs and symptoms for a concussion allows for early intervention, and potentially a faster recovery.
Join us to learn more about baseline testing and treatment options.
