Concussion is a common injury and its diagnosis and treatment does not cause any issues, scientists and doctors. However, recent research in this area proved that the person needs more time to recover brain than currently believe the doctors. Early discharge from hospital can lead to serious consequences, because some changes can manifest themselves only a few months after the incident, injury, writes the BBC.
Scientists from the University of new Mexico conducted a study that affected the brain affected by shocks people. For the control group was studied 50 people without pathology of the nervous system. People with a concussion the first time I had problems with memory, constant headaches, loss of orientation in space. Usually, these symptoms disappear after a few weeks.
However, computer study of the brain of patients after discharge often recorded the disruption of blood flow and cerebral movement of fluid in the cavities of the brain. These changes can serve as a risk factor for chronic pathologies of the nervous system (high pressure, migraines, strokes)
It is worth noting that in the U.S. patients with concussion get sick in an average week. While fractures of the knee giving the person a certificate of incapacity for up to a month.
