Concussion and Brain Injury Treatments Available in Morgantown

Treatments available in Morgantown for Car Accident Victims who have suffered Concussion or Brain Injury

Concussions and brain injuries take place in automobile accidents, falls, sports accidents, getting hit in the head, and workplace and construction accidents. Once an accident has happened, it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms of a more serious brain injury, which may not be readily identified by an untrained observer.

Brain injuries and concussions often are the first and worst injuries to occur from accidents, and may be the last to be diagnosed, with symptoms showing up days, weeks or months after the accident. For optimum recovery, seek medical evaluation immediately after the collision, and thereafter for any symptoms which may present some time later.

The symptoms of traumatic brain injury may include, headache, nausea/vomiting, dizziness/balance problems, double/blurry vision, sensitivity to light and noise, memory problems, confusion, difficulty concentrating and paying attention, decreased energy, change in sleep patterns and ringing in the ears.' The recovery time depends on the severity of the injury and the treatment. Some people never recover fully and may need ongoing medical and psychological care.

In cases where concussion has occurred, vestibular physical therapists can help in concussion management and can evaluate and treat patients with complaints of dizziness, balance deficits, and motion sensitivity. Here in Morgantown, Healthworks Rehab and Fitness offers this vestibular physical therapy and can help car accident victims regain cognitive function and help to eliminate headaches and blurry thinking.

An ounce of prevention is always worth more than a pound of cure.  Potential future brain  injuries can be prevented or at least their effects lessened by wearing seatbelts and helmets, and taking proper precautions when working on ladders or at great heights. Even better fitting and higher quality shoes can help the elderly from slipping and falling.

A West Virginia personal injury attorney can help you gain the resources needed for evaluation, treatment, and optimum recovery.  Some unfortunate car accident victims are impaired for life as a result of a brain injury. Loss of cognitive skills, decreased quality of life and the inability to return to an occupation are all factors that can help to determine the value of your case.
