Specializes in Neurology
Depends : Concussion is a clinical diagnosis, that is, if you had symptoms of concussion after the trauma, no matter what the cause, you have a concussion. If you are having symptoms you may benefit from seeing your doctor, treatment is normal brain rest. 90% of people get completely back to normal in less that one week.
