Concussions are a very common occurrence in the world. So common, in fact, that millions of people experience a concussion each year. Concussions are not relegated to just athletes. Anyone can experience a concussion and suffer from its symptoms. But because concussions are so common, this does not allow us to understate their importance. Concussions can lead to even more serious health issues. In this post, we’ll discuss whether pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) can help with concussions and their symptoms.
What is a Concussion?
A concussion is an injury that happens when your brain is on the receiving end of a violent shake or blow. It’s a traumatic brain injury caused by an incident resulting in your brain making contact with your skull or rapidly moving back and forth. Concussions are very serious situations, although they are not normally known to be life threatening and often aren’t considered to be that serious of an injury. When you think someone might have a concussion, it’s best to be safe and treat them as though they absolutely do have one.
What are the Signs of a Concussion?
Symptoms of a concussion don’t always present themselves in the same ways for everyone. Some people who’ve experienced a concussion might not display symptoms immediately, while others might. Due to this fact, it is important to monitor anyone in fear of having a possible concussion.
Some symptoms of having a concussion can include headaches, feelings of pressure in your head, bouts of nausea or vomiting, feelings of sluggishness, grogginess, and an inability to concentrate or recall certain things. Clear indications that someone might have a concussion include the inability to recall events before or after sustaining the concussion, having a stunned or dazed look, moving slowly or unsurely, or having mood swings and personality changes.
While all concussions should be treated seriously, there are some signs that you should be aware of after sustaining a concussion. Dangerous symptoms include the inability to maintain consciousness or wake up, an overabundance of vomiting, seizures, weakness in extremities, slurred speech, and a gradually worsening headache. Do not hesitate to seek professional medical attention for a concussion.
How Should You (or Someone you Know) Treat a Concussion
Most likely, if you have a concussion, you would need the assistance of a doctor or medical professional. But if you can help someone who is suspected of having sustained a concussion, there are some things you can do to help them (or yourself) immediately.
One of the first things to do if you think you have a concussion is to get rest. Immediately stop any and all unnecessary activities. Regardless of what was happening before or what is going to happen, all activities, especially strenuous activities should cease. One thing you should want to guard against is worsening your concussion or sustaining another one. Giving your brain the proper time it needs to recover is very important.
Above all else, be sure to involve a medical professional to identify and treat for a concussion as soon as possible. They’ll be able to properly diagnose you and give you the necessary guidance to recover.
How to Potentially Prevent a Concussion
It can be almost impossible to predict when a concussion could happen. Sometimes the most cautious person will still end up with a concussion. However, there are some ways to try and safeguard against head injuries. In the world of sports, athletes must protect themselves. This can mean pads, helmets, and gloves during physical activities.
In other situations, exhibiting patience will help you avoid calamity. Being cautious about which contact sports or activities is a good way to avoid a concussion. In accident-prone situations, you should exhibit extreme caution. For example, make sure to wear your seatbelt when riding in or driving a car. Remove items at home or at work that would cause you to fall. Keep any and all walkways clear. Also, workout your legs in order to cultivate strength in your lower half. Stronger legs results in less of a chance of losing your balance and landing on your head!
