Concussion

A sudden or hard impact to the head can jolt the brain. When a blow to the head or body causes the brain to move or twist in the skull, it can damage brain cells or cause chemical changes. This is called a concussion, which is a mild form of traumatic brain injury. Although patients can completely recover from a concussion without treatment, there are risks of serious damage to the brain. When there are concerning symptoms from a concussion, treatment may be needed. Our team of experts offer treatments for concussions and other head pain at Medici Medical Arts.

If a blow to the head causes a concussion, the symptoms are usually evident immediately after the injury. Symptoms can change in the following hours, days and weeks after the event. However, some of the most common symptoms that indicate a concussion include:

  • Headache
  • Blurred vision
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness or balance problems
  • Light sensitivity
  • Fatigue
  • Trouble concentrating or “brain fog”

A slight concussion can dissipate on its own. Most concussions will include a headache, but this can fade away. If a headache becomes worse or more symptoms are present after an impact to the head, it could be a sign of a serious brain injury and should receive emergency medical treatment. A concussion could cause a brain hemorrhage, seizures or serious brain injuries that require immediate attention.

Recovering from a Concussion

A serious concussion can cause brain trauma. It is important to have a medical exam to ensure that there is not any injury to the brain. Recovering from most concussions requires rest for one or two weeks to allow the brain to heal. In severe cases when a brain injury has occurred or a patient has had multiple concussions, treatment may be needed to address symptoms such as chronic headaches, migraines or physical impairments.

If you suffered from a severe concussion and have head pain or other symptoms from your injury, contact Medici Medical Arts today for a consultation. We offer concussion treatments to alleviate pain and improve function at our clinics in the greater Atlanta area.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
