Advocacy by and for People with ABI (Acquired Brain Injury)
Public Policy of the Brain Injury Network Policy dated 9-12-09
PostConcussion Syndrome: PostConcussion Syndrome originally referred to a syndrome complex subsequent to a minor or mild brain injury (concussion). The clinically recognizable features include headache, dizziness, fatigue, personality changes and other symptoms. When these symptoms present subsequent to a concussion the condition is called PostConcussion Syndrome. However, the Syndrome is now also diagnosed after more severe types of brain injury. The Brain Injury Network recognizes that many survivors in our community have “PostConcussion Syndrome”. We find nothing controversial about this diagnosis and we applaud doctors in the medical community who are willing to diagnose this syndrome.
