HeadFirst Concussion Care Offers Six Important Tips for Mana
ANNAPOLIS, Md., Dec. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The medical providers at HeadFirst Sports Injury and Concussion Care, the premier community concussion clinic for the diagnosis, management, and treatment of mild traumatic brain injuries (TBI), are offering tips for getting through the holidays while recovering from a head injury.
"The holiday season can be a particularly challenging time of year," says HeadFirst CEO Robert G. Graw, Jr., M.D. "The sights and sounds are brighter and louder than usual, and while others are enjoying the festivities, those recovering from brain trauma may find it more difficult to continue healing."
HeadFirst Medical Director Karen Laugel, M.D., FAAP, urges her patients to take it a little easier when recuperating and says, "We certainly don't want people to feel isolated but instead encourage sensible celebrating."
To promote recovery from head injury, Drs. Graw and Laugel suggest these tips:
