Concussions/Dizziness

CONCUSSIONS

Concussions are defined as "shaking of the brain, resulting from impact, resulting in malfunction of brain cells and transient brain function disorders." 


The concussion can occur following a direct impact to the head and even without a direct hit, for example, a car accident. Imagine an egg in a jar of vinegar. The egg is your brain and vinegar is the liquid that surrounds the brain inside the skull. Following a rapid and violent movement of the head, the brain can strike against the skull (or against the "jar").

The diagnosis of concussion must be made by a qualified health professional. However, some common symptoms can be identified by the person suffering from concussion. (See the following infographic)




PROBLEMS OF THE VESTIBULAR SYSTEM
(dizziness)

The vestibular system is a barosensitive sensory organ (pressure), located in the inner ear, which contributes to the sensation of movement and balance. It consists of a peripheral sensory organ composed of the posterior labyrinth (semicircular canals, utricle and saccule), the vestibulocochlear nerve and its encephalic nuclei.

Several problems and diseases arise from the vestibular system. A thorough medical evaluation is often necessary to make the diagnosis. Some conditions are easily and quickly treated while others can leave permanent damages.

Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo (BPPV) is the most common cause of vertigo. BPPV, or vertigo of position, is a form of dizziness that is intermittent and short-lived (less than a minute) and is always on the same side. The person feels that the room is spinning around them.
