Why do some people get better in a week while others take months to years?
PCS” is the acronym that was originally assigned to Post-Concussion Syndrome which was defined as having 3 or more concussion-related symptoms 1 to 3 months or more after a concussion injury. The term Post-Concussion Syndrome was replaced a few years ago with “Persistent Concussion Symptoms” and more recently by “Prolonged Concussion Symptoms”. In any case, the acronym remains: P.C.S. Anyone who has struggled with PCS or knows someone who has knows how difficult this condition can be. We are often told by healthcare professionals that there is no treatment for this condition other than TIME. Recent research over the past decade however has uncovered a lot of new information regarding the CAUSES and TREATMENTS of this complex condition. In part 1 of this two part series we break down the CAUSES of persistent concussion symptoms. In part 2 we will discuss the treatments.
Concussion is treatable. If you or someone you know is suffering with PCS, we hope this information will provide some guidance and hope to continue pushing on.
