Concussions are caused by severe impact to the head which causes the brain to move within the skull, causing the brain cells to stretch and suffer injury. The skull is designed to protect the brain as well as hold cerebrospinal fluid. When a person suffers a concussion, the impact causes the brain to lose its support, causing the brain cells to stretch and become bruised. When this kind of head trauma occurs, there is damage to the cranial nerves and the blood vessels that supply the brain. Although many concussions are not life threatening, they can have a serious impact on the quality of life for individuals. Any of the symptoms mentioned above must be evaluated by qualified healthcare professionals immediately to rule-out permanent or deteriorating conditions and provide early treatment. It is best to seek early detection through neurological examinations, head CT scan, MRI of the brain or an impact concussion test. Healthcare professionals may prescribe OTC drugs like Tylenol and Acetaminophen for a headache. But usually, for mild cases, an ice pack can be applied to the head in order to alleviate pain or reduce swelling. Cuts and bruises can be treated using antiseptics.
