Post-Concussion Syndrome

Concussion Syndrome

Description

Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS) is a complex disorder in which various symptioms - such as headaches and dizziness - last for weeks and sometimes months after the injury that caused the concussion. In most people, symptoms occur within the first seven to 10 days and go away within three months. Sometimes, they can persist for a year or more. The goal of treatment after concussion is to effectively manage your symptoms.
