Mild concussions generally present with possible memory loss, some mental confusion, a ringing in the ears, and dizziness in addition to pain around the area trauma was sustained.
Moderate concussions have a higher chance for memory loss, increased dizziness and imbalance, and nausea/vomiting. Severe concussions include higher rates of all the aforementioned along with loss of consciousness for more than five minutes and a possibility of retrograde amnesia.
Athletes suffering from concussions should be taken out of their sport completely until fully healed. This means a gradual return to activity when given the green light – starting with walking and stationary cycling and moving up from there.
Treatment for whiplash begins with RICE therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and a soft cervical collar, though early movement is being recommended more and more over immobilization.
