It can be very difficult to determine whether or not someone has a concussion, as symptoms do not always appear right away. They may not become present for hours, days, weeks or months and can last for just as long. If you or your child has sustained a concussion, physical therapy can help.
In rare cases, mostly in adolescents, if someone returns to activity before being completely symptom free of a concussion and sustains then another blow to the head, they could suffer from a very serious condition called Second Impact Syndrome. Second Impact Syndrome can cause severe brain injury and can be fatal. It is important for any individual that may have sustained a concussion to be fully evaluated and cleared by the appropriate medical professional.
